Houses that are buildings, but not a residence (House of Worship, Houses of Parliament, etc.)[edit]

Should houses that are buildings, but not a residence (house of worship, Houses of Parliament, etc.) be in the main "house" article, or should they be discussed on the disambiguation page?

Suggestion[edit]

I suggest that the "Parts" section is changed to "Rooms." Speling12345 (talk) 8:45, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

I came here looking for some history of human habitation, but there's practically nothing apart from an allusion to Vitruvius and Laugier, not even any links. Perhaps this in itself says something interesting, but for me at least, some discussion of the origins of house construction would be a valuable addition. 62.195.152.115 (talk) 01:45, 30 August 2017 (UTC)

Weatherization and tight buildings?[edit]

Coming from a cold but yet environment in the Pacific Northwest, it would be nice to see more about insulation and weatherization, perhaps using sources like Insulate and Weatherize: Expert Advice from Start to Finish or [http://homeenergy.org/show/article/nav/healthyhomes/page/16/id/935 Building Tightness Guidelines: When Is a House Too Tight?] II | (t - c) 20:59, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

building layout has nothing at all to do with interior design[edit]

Even though the page is protected to avoid vandalism, someone managed to get this in: “Ideally, architects of houses design rooms to meet the needs of the people who will live in the house. Such designing, known as "interior design", has become a popular subject in universities.“ The first sentence makes sense, the second is complete nonsense. This is a paragraph about building layout, interior design has nothing to do with it.—151.34.107.57 (talk) 09:26, 27 July 2018 (UTC)

Done. Thanks for catching that. Just plain Bill (talk) 14:02, 27 July 2018 (UTC)
