Types of homes

  1. 1. Types  of  Buildings     in  the  USA  
  2. 2. Houses  •  Usually  one  family  lives   in  each  house.  •  Houses  usually  have   their  own  backyards   and  a  li?le  bit  of  land   surround  the  house.  •  They  are  built   separately  from  other   houses.  This  makes   them  different  from   duplexes  or  apartments.  
  3. 3. Mobile  Homes  •  These  homes  are  built  in  a   factory  and  then  delivered   to  the  locaCon  where  the   family  will  live.  •  There  are  neighborhoods   where  all  of  the  residents   live  in  mobile  homes.   These  are  called  “trailer   parks.”  
  4. 4. Duplexes  •  A  duplex  is  a  dwelling   that  has  been  divided   into  two  parts  so  that   two  families  can  live  in   it.    •  The  homes  share  a   common  wall.  •  The  homes  do  not  have   to  have  the  same  floor   plan,  but  they  usually   do.    
  5. 5. Apartments  /  Flats  •  These  homes  are   usually  intended  for  one   family  and  can  vary  by   size.  •   These  homes  occupy   part  of  a  building;  in   some  cases,  they   occupy  the  enCre  floor.  •  People  do  not  buy   apartments.  Instead   they  rent  them  for  a   specific  amount  of  Cme.  
  6. 6. Condominium  •  These  homes  are   like  apartments,   except  that  people   buy  them  instead   of  renCng  them.  •  Common  spaces   are  shared  by  all   the  people  who   live  in  the   building.  
  7. 7.    Houseboat  •  These  homes  are  boats   that  have  been  converted   into  homes.  •  SomeCmes  people  live  in   these  year-­‐round,  but   more  oRen  these  are  only   used  during  the  summer.  •  Some  houseboats  are   motorized  and  owners   can  travel  in  them;  others   are  Ced  up  and  do  not   move.
