In the video below it is called a "house", but I don't really consider what they built to be a house. It is most definitely a hut. Or at very least a tiny home for hobbits. Yeah, Tolkien jokes. Even by hobbit standards however, this is a tiny place to live in.
Still a hut could be useful as shelter, or even could later be modified to be a root cellar for storing food in. For the survivalists this is one option for making a shelter out of pretty basic materials. For the hunters, this could also make a nice ground blind for waiting for the deer or turkeys to pass by.
