Some homeless people gather cardboard boxes to build a tiny volume where they can sleep with less wind than if just outside.
How to call such a "home"?
- I see "homeless house" being used but it sounds a bit paradoxical.
- A Google Images search for "street dwelling" shows images of small but brick-and-mortar houses, so I guess it is not the word I am looking for either.
I am writing a reference text, so I would prefer a term used by government agencies or NGOs, rather than slang.
