There are a lot of different ways to build a house. These ways are especially different in different regions of the world. Some people still build log cabins in remote areas that are hard to get lumber to but some people build them just because they like the rustic feel. Mexico still will build houses with adobe which is straw and clay mixed together. In the United States, they like to build large houses where in Europe many people have small flats. There are also many people that have modular homes made. Modular homes are built in a factory in two pieces then shipped to the location and put together. This makes for a really cheap house.
Many people all around the world are starting to really focus on building houses that are really energy efficient. They are also trying to build the houses with recycled materials such as plastic. There are a lot of uses for plastic in a house such as the siding and plumbing. Then there are people in really poor countries that cannot afford to be energy efficient and end up building houses out of corrugated steel. These houses are not much more that huts all hooked together. There are so many different ways to build a house but the main purpose that everyone wants is to keep the elements out and keep them warm at night. Some houses are a lot more extravagant but they all serve the same purpose throughout the world. My house is an old two-story house that I got really cheap but it serves me well and I am happy with it. There are a lot of people that would not want to live in my house but then there are people that would give anything to have my home. It is just a matter of opinion what is needed.
