A house is where the residents of your town live. The house provides the occupants with warmth and shelter, a place to raise a family, and a place to store goods that they use. Wooden homes are easy to build but use 100% more fuel to heat than Stone houses.

A family will stock their home with food and fuel to keep themselves well fed and warm. As the family grows, children that reach adult age will start looking for their own home and a spouse. Unless empty homes are available, the will continue to live with their parents.

When there is no fuel to heat a home, or no food for the occupants to eat, status icons will appear above the home.

When either icon appears, you should focus on producing more food or fuel as starvation and freezing may occur.

Clicking a wooden house will display the occupants that live in the house, their gender, age, and profession.

Pressing the upgrade button will cause the building to be torn down and a stone house to be built in its place.

Pressing one of the focus buttons will move the view to the selected citizen and show their details.
