As we are planning to go to space we should first start with a plan to make buffers in space. On earth we have it all in our hands for free but in space we will have to create these buffers by our-selfs. What do humans need.. well we could use water and oxygen as main buffers. We should develop techniques with robots to make buffers of water and oxygen for in the nearby future. Ones we have these buffers we can go ahead and do all things to build a base. A buffer of small rocks and a buffer of medium rocks could also be useful. The more specialized materials could be started with fine powder and heat from the sun with the needed additives. We have to figure out what the easiest ways are in our new environments and try to addapt to them instead of forcing our own habits onto them. We have to think like moonlings on the moon.
