Rodzaje domów

Houses fall into different types and are inhabited by people of various needs and material status. For instance, a large percentage of city dwellers in Poland rent a flat in a block of flats. Such blocks are often grouped together in housing estates. Those who cannot afford a flat of their own may live in a tenement house or in a council flat. However, high-rise buildings and skyscrapers are also inhabited by well-off people who buy exclusive apartments and penthouses – in this way they can rest in their home away from home during lunchbreaks or after work.

Another group of city inhabitants are students and fresh graduates who seek an affordable dwelling. Some of them decide to live in a dormitory – a large building in which students share flats. Others, who may not wish to live with a flatmate, opt for bedsits or studios that provide enough space and privacy for the basic needs.

Families, both living in urban areas as well as on the outskirts, may reside in a house. Typical of municipal architecture, especially in Great Britain, are terraced houses which can be at best described as a row of identical houses that share side walls. One may also live in a semi-detached house – which means they share one house with another family – or build their own detached house. In general, houses can be single- and multi-storey, with the lowest floor called the ground floor in British English and the first floor in America.

Century-old castles as well as poshly furnished manors or stately mansions are the kind of residences that appeal to aristocrats and millionaires who want to live in a secluded place, for instance in the countryside. Another kind of dwelling to be encountered in rural areas is cottages or, inhabited by citizens struggling with poverty, shacks. Nearby tourist spots one can come across campsites with tents and low-rise bungalows, which are also popular among the British and the American as a regular living place. Yet another kind of season dwelling is a chalet – a holiday cabin built in the mountains or in their vicinity.
