Apaches have two different types of houses depending on where they lived in Texas. The wikiups were more permanent houses built from tree saplings covered with bark or grass. Tepees were more temporary and could be moved easily when hunting buffalo


The Caddos had 30 foot dome-shaped houses. They would make a wood frame from tree limbs and cover it with tall grasses and marshes.
