A house is a form of dwelling. It provides shelter, comfort, and security. To be specific, houses are buildings that serve as a home. For example, a hut can be considered a house (albeit one of the simplest types of houses). From the simplest structures to more complex and elaborately structures like castles, townhouses, mansions, and villas. They are all houses.

Basic components of a house are the roofings (to keep rain, snow, etc out), doors and locks (for security and privacy), etc. Most modern homes have bathrooms, living rooms, kitchens, bedrooms, and dining rooms. However, not all houses have each of these things.

They can be made from a variety of materials like mud, clay, wood, bricks, and even ice. Of course, it isn’t uncommon to see a combination of one or more kinds of material used in the construction of a house.

Throughout history, homes have evolved in scope, size, and design. For example, cob houses from the eleventh century were made from straw and earth. In the middle ages, we had manor houses. Sprawling Victorian-style houses, castles, and mansions soon followed.
