Houses were, of course, more affordable and simpler to build. They were generally rectangular and large.
The options included duplexes with two distinct units one on top of the other; multiple-unit homes with one shared access to individual apartments from the outside; and multipurpose buildings. The roofs were flat, either with a gentle slope to the back or with a central drain.
Flat-roofed homes were sometimes decorated in the front with pediments, crowns, and end-ornaments, and occasionally with cornices. The houses’ window and door openings were evenly spaced from one level to the other, while window models varied significantly.
