The most frequently used construction materials for Lattara's houses and associated structures were earth, stone, wood and various plants, such as reeds.
The foundations of the walls were often built with undressed stones. Several rows of stone blocks were then used to raise these foundations to about 50 cm above ground level. Walls were then built from earth, using various techniques, including unfired rectangular or square mud-bricks, rammed earth and daub. Mixed-technique walls are also known. In addition, earthen plaster was used to waterproof walls on the outside, but was also used inside rooms.
Wood was very widely used. It was naturally used to make beams and rafters for roofs, but also to make posts, mezzanines, lean-tos and interior structures such as shelves, and for constructing doorways.
