Iam going out on a limb here and picking D.

D seems to bring out what they did not have when they built the houses.

A and B dont indicate whether timber and nails were for the house or for the mud and grass

C is blabbering

E ninteenth century settlers's homes does not sound right

I will vote for D

Making do is more accurate than making them...
