A vheh'yaim was a traditional Mandalorian dwelling, designed to be easily built for temporary living quarters. Circular in shape, vheh'yaime were often constructed out of green wood, woven with vines, and matted with mud. They were also generally dug into the ground with a cut-in entrance, so that the inside of the building was partially submerged into the ground. While the idea of "temporary" was relative, sometimes ranging from overnight to even years, vheh'yaime were designed to be easily abandoned if the time came, or just as easily deconstructed and moved to a new location.
Kyrimorut, the home of Clan Skirata on the planet Mandalore in the years following the Clone Wars, was an example of a large vheh'yaim. During the time of the Second Galactic Civil War, several vheh'yaime were also set up across the farm of Mandalorian soldiers Goran Beviin and Medrit Vasur, near the Mandalorian capital city of Keldabe, in addition to the main stone farmhouse. These outbuildings were interconnected by underground tunnels.
