Primarily used for sleeping and household storage, typical "wattle and daub"' huts with woven stick walls (wattle), dirt floors, and tyre palm roofs comprised Annaberg's slave quarters on the slope below. The exteriors were plastered (daubed) with fresh cow dung, clay, or a mixture of sand, lime, and water. The bedding was made of sacks stuffed with coconut husks. Cooking and chores were done in the surrounding yard.
