Thesis: The yahoo society in Gulliver's Travels is superior to the Houyhnhnm society in the areas of Building, Possessions, Property, and Tools due to their better availability of knowledge and resources.
Houyhnhnm Buildings
They build houses and huts
"...Long kind of building, made of timber, stuck in the ground, and wattled across; roof was low, and covered with straw."
Huts are made crude and simple
How do they get the wood?
Gulliver's Yahoo Tools

weapons for war
bridle, saddle, spur, whip, harness, and wheel

Gulliver's Yahoo Tools cont.
Unlike the Houyhnhnm Yahoos, Gulliver's Yahoos do not use their anatomy as a tool.
"...my real disadvantage in point of strength, speed, and activity, the shortness of my claws, and other particulars..."
Houyhnhnm's Yahoo Tools
The Yahoos on the island use their claws for defense and their thick hair for protection.
