Exterior of the Homes

A peasant’s home had a thatched roof, and a mud bottom. The spaces in the walls were filled with mud and twig a combination that was waterproof, fire proof, and made good insulation. Most homes in feudal Europe had dirt floors but wooden planks were used. There was a hole in the middle of the roof so smoke from the hearth would have a way of leaving the home. The hole was surrounded by tile or stone to make it harder for the thatch to catch fire. Windows when they were present were small openings with wooden shutters. The small windows aloud those inside to look out but those outside not to look in. There homes were very cozy, they mostly had two rooms, and usually held more then one family.
