baraque


Explanation:
Domaine(s) : bâtiment 1 / 1
hut baraque


Contexte :
(...) de petites baraques susceptibles d'être chargées sur des plateaux de camions ou remorques...


Note :
Baraque comme bâtiment, est un terme général : la baraque peut servir de bureau, de dortoir, d'atelier, d'entrepôt, etc. C'est une construction légère, généralement préfabriquée, en panneaux démontables, extensible, transportable, etc. A la Société d'énergie de la Baie James, le mot baraque est réservé aux constructions plus rudimentaires des campements d'exploration (contre-plaqué ou panneaux préfabriqués). Les bâtiments Fold-A-Way (ATCO) entreraient dans la catégorie des baraques.

le taudis


Explanation:
If you want a translation the renders the idea of a house that was once acceptable, but is now dilapidated, that is the word. The GDT defines "les taudis" as a slum aera, but it is also used for a single accomodation:

ROBERT: "Logement misérable qui ne satisfait pas aux conditions de confort et de'hygiène indispensable."

GRAND DICTIONNAIRE: "A predominantly residential area where, by reason of dilapidation, overcrowding, faulty arrangement or design, lack of ventilation, light or sanitation facilities, or any combination of these factors, living conditions are considered to be detrimental to safety, health, and morals."

Hope this helps
