A House is a civilian building that is used for housing units in Age of Empires, Age of Empires II, Age of Empires III, and Age of Mythology. The House is available to almost every civilization in the Age of Empires series.

Overview Edit

A House is a basic building that can support a population of four (in Age of Empires), five (in Age of Empires II), or ten (in Age of Empires III and Age of Mythology), Settlers or Villagers and military units. Houses are critical to the expansion of a civilization as it expands the population limit and allows more units to be created.

In Age of Empires III there are four different types of houses which are House (West), House (Medium), and House (East) and the special Manor House (unique to the British) which spawns a new Settler every time it is built.

In Age of Empires II, the House's Line of Sight (LOS) can be upgraded from Town Watch and Town Patrol at the Town Center and receives more hitpoints from the Masonry and Architecture technologies researched at the University. Huns cannot build houses and can ignore the population limit. It is also the only structure which can be rotated in scenario editor.

OverviewEdit

During the Middle Ages in Europe, peasants often kept farm animals in a separate room or on the ground floor of their houses. Merchants and craftsmen also used ground floors as a place of business with living areas above. Lords lived in larger manor houses with kitchens separated to reduce the risk of fire. The homes of lords in the Dark Ages were fortified before the advent of castles.

Age of Mythology Edit

The House is virtually similar for Greeks, Egyptians and Norse. The only difference is that they support ten population and only ten can be built at a time. The only way to have more population is to build more Town Centers on Settlements.

Atlanteans don't have Houses but Manors which supports twenty, but can only be built five at a time.
