The trading hut was a structure built on an artificial island by Etho within the vicinity of Etho's base. It was located on the post-1.8 vanilla server. The structure, which was created with the intent of facilitating the trading of paper for emeralds with villagers, was unveiled during a video that Etho posted on August 24, 2012. The hut fell into disuse after a patch made it impossible to trade unlimited quantities of items with villagers.
