Most commonly, a household is a family unit of some kind, although households may also be other social groups , such as roommates or, in a rooming house , unconnected individuals.
Some houses only have a dwelling space for one family or similar-sized group; larger houses called townhouses or row houses may contain numerous family dwellings in the same structure. A house may be accompanied by outbuildings, such as a garage for vehicles or a shed for gardening equipment and tools.
A house may have a backyard or front yard, which serve as additional areas where inhabitants can relax or eat. The English word house derives directly from the Old English hus meaning "dwelling, shelter, home, house," which in turn derives from Proto-Germanic husan reconstructed by etymological analysis which is of unknown origin. The symbol was called "bayt", "bet" or "beth" in various related languages, and became beta , the Greek letter, before it was used by the Romans.
Ideally, architects of houses design rooms to meet the needs of the people who will live in the house. Feng shui , originally a Chinese method of moving houses according to such factors as rain and micro-climates, has recently expanded its scope to address the design of interior spaces, with a view to promoting harmonious effects on the people living inside the house, although no actual effect has ever been demonstrated. Feng shui can also mean the "aura" in or around a dwelling, making it comparable to the real estate sales concept of "indoor-outdoor flow".
The square footage of a house in the United States reports the area of "living space", excluding the garage and other non-living spaces. The "square metres" figure of a house in Europe reports the area of the walls enclosing the home, and thus includes any attached garage and non-living spaces.
Humans often build houses for domestic or wild animals , often resembling smaller versions of human domiciles. Familiar animal houses built by humans include birdhouses , henhouses and doghouses , while housed agricultural animals more often live in barns and stables.
Many houses have several large rooms with specialized functions and several very small rooms for other various reasons. Some larger properties may also feature rooms such as a spa room, indoor pool, indoor basketball court, and other 'non-essential' facilities. In traditional agriculture-oriented societies, domestic animals such as chickens or larger livestock often share part of the house with humans.
Most conventional modern houses will at least contain a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen or cooking area, and a living room. The names of parts of a house often echo the names of parts of other buildings, but could typically include:. Little is known about the earliest origin of the house and its interior, however it can be traced back to the simplest form of shelters. Roman architect Vitruvius ' theories have claimed the first form of architecture as a frame of timber branches finished in mud, also known as the primitive hut.
As far as the idea of the home is concerned, the home of the home is the Netherlands. This idea's crystallization might be dated to the first three-quarters of the 17th century, when the Dutch Netherlands amassed the unprecedented and unrivalled accumulation of capital, and emptied their purses into domestic space. In the Middle Ages , the Manor Houses facilitated different activities and events. Furthermore, the houses accommodated numerous people, including family, relatives, employees, servants and their guests.
During the 15th and 16th centuries, the Italian Renaissance Palazzo consisted of plentiful rooms of connectivity. Unlike the qualities and uses of the Manor Houses, most rooms of the palazzo contained no purpose, yet were given several doors. These doors adjoined rooms in which Robin Evans describes as a "matrix of discrete but thoroughly interconnected chambers.
An early example of the segregation of rooms and consequent enhancement of privacy may be found in at the Beaufort House built in Chelsea, London. This new extension was revolutionary at the time, allowing the integration of one door per room, in which all universally connected to the same corridor. English architect Sir Roger Pratt states "the common way in the middle through the whole length of the house, [avoids] the offices from one molesting the other by continual passing through them.
More privacy is offered to the occupant as Pratt further claims, "the ordinary servants may never publicly appear in passing to and fro for their occasions there.
Sociologist Witold Rybczynski wrote, "the subdivision of the house into day and night uses, and into formal and informal areas, had begun.
Compared to the large scaled houses in England and the Renaissance, the 17th Century Dutch house was smaller, and was only inhabited by up to four to five members. It was important for the Dutch to separate work from domesticity, as the home became an escape and a place of comfort.
This way of living and the home has been noted as highly similar to the contemporary family and their dwellings. By the end of the 17th century, the house layout was transformed to become employment-free, enforcing these ideas for the future. This came in favour for the industrial revolution , gaining large-scale factory production and workers. In the American context, some professions, such as doctors, in the 19th and early 20th century typically operated out of the front room or parlor or had a two-room office on their property, which was detached from the house.
By the midth-century, the increase in high-tech equipment created a marked shift whereby the contemporary doctor typically worked from an office or hospital. The introduction of technology and electronic systems within the house has questioned the impressions of privacy as well as the segregation of work from home.
Technological advances of surveillance and communications allow insight of personal habits and private lives. The "deluge of information",  has expressed the efforts of work, conveniently gaining access inside the house.
Although commuting is reduced, the desire to separate working and living remains apparent. Traditional houses in Faza , Kenya. Traditional village house in Banaue , Philippines. Traditional two-story tin shed house in Bangladesh. Energy-efficient houses in Amersfoort , Netherlands. In many parts of the world, houses are constructed using scavenged materials.
In Manila 's Payatas neighborhood, slum houses are often made of material sourced from a nearby garbage dump. The garbage-sand mixture is also used to protect the house from flooding. In the United States, modern house construction techniques include light-frame construction in areas with access to supplies of wood and adobe or sometimes rammed-earth construction in arid regions with scarce wood-resources. Some areas use brick almost exclusively, and quarried stone has long provided foundations and walls.
To some extent, aluminum and steel have displaced some traditional building materials. Increasingly popular alternative construction materials include insulating concrete forms foam forms filled with concrete , structural insulated panels foam panels faced with oriented strand board or fiber cement , light-gauge steel , and steel framing.
For example, a large portion of American houses use wood, while most British and many European houses use stone, brick, or mud. In the early 20th century, some house designers started using prefabrication.
Prefab techniques became popular after World War II. First small inside rooms framing, then later, whole walls were prefabricated and carried to the construction site. The original impetus was to use the labor force inside a shelter during inclement weather. More recently, builders have begun to collaborate with structural engineers who use finite element analysis to design prefabricated steel-framed homes with known resistance to high wind loads and seismic forces.
These newer products provide labor savings, more consistent quality, and possibly accelerated construction processes. Lesser-used construction methods have gained or regained popularity in recent years. Though not in wide use, these methods frequently appeal to homeowners who may become actively involved in the construction process.
They include:. In the developed world, energy-conservation has grown in importance in house design. Development of a number of low-energy building types and techniques continues. They include the zero-energy house , the passive solar house , the autonomous buildings , the superinsulated and houses built to the Passivhaus standard. Buildings with historical importance have legal restrictions.
