If games have taught me anything about spiders, it's that they live around areas where the player finds shelter from the weather.

Neither of the above, but I could use straw and mud together to build my cob house then plaster the outer walls with lime and sand (with a hint of iron sulfate).

I wonder if it's plausible to build a house out of bricks in a day.

If they are Lego bricks, then yes.

Corrugated metal panels would be my first choice, but it's also very easy to build a quick shelter out of sticks and leaves.

Bricks would be fine for the walls, but what would you do about the roof?

Check for spiders, what if the house was built on some sort of secret spider nesting grounds. Your house would be over run.

Build a simple structure, wait a few months, then come back and CHECK FOR SPIDERS!

TBH, it won't be much of a house. It would be closer to a tent.

I'd probably use straw. Easier to replace, is potentially portable, has decent insulation. And I can scatter it over the ground for a comfortable floor. I can always build it in a more sheltered area or make some sort of earthen structure around and over it, maybe mix mud and straw to keep it together.
