Is it possible to build a habitable structure on the surface of a star?

Update:

Pandeism fully accounts. Blessings!!

    A neutron star would have a solid surface, but the gravity and heat and magnetism would be too crushing for any human habitation to be built. Other stars are gaseous, and would have no surface on which to erect a structure. A neutron star has a gravitational pull of about 2,000,000,000,000 m/s^2 (2 billion!) compared to wussy little Earth at 9.8665 m/s^2.

    If you want to read a bit about theoretical native life on a neutron star, check out "Draogon's Egg" by Robert L. Forward. It's pretty good. :-)

    No. They are too hot, they will kill you.

    No, stars are just giant balls of gas. There would be no surface to build on, and it would be hot as hell!

    Absolutely not.

    1) The sun has no solid surface. It is nothing but gas and plasma, so nothing can be built on it.

    2) There is no known material that would remain solid at the temperature of the surface of the sun.

    What surface? There is no solid surface to build anything on.

    No. Even the smallest stars have surface gravity several thousand times that of the Earth, not to mention temperatures hot enough to atomize most carbon bonded structures.

    No... If they’re still on the main sequence, the surface isn’t solid, and too hot to survive on. If they’re a dead star, the surface gravity will be so immense, I doubt any beings could survive.
