 A house is a building in which people live. It usually has several rooms which serve different purposes. Examples of parts of a house are the bedrooms, the living room, the kitchen, pantry, toilet, bathroom, study and corridors. Types of houses  

  1. Primitive houses. Primitive houses are simple, and do not have modern facilities that would make them comfortable. They are,however, habitable. They include:
