As an alternative to the house that you normally build, you can simply build a small camp in the jungle.
Instructions:One builds some small tents, in which the most important things should be contained and can then still set up a campfire, one should be careful, however, that nothing burns (what can happen quickly in the jungle because of hanging down lianas).
Of course you can set up such a camp in other biomes as well, in my opinion it fits best in a jungle.
Furthermore, you should also make sure that the camp is reasonably secured from monsters.
