A House supports up to four villagers, military units, or boats. You must have enough houses before you can create new units. If a House is destroyed, you do not lose the units it supported, but you must build new houses before you can build new villagers, military units, or boats.
Researching Architecture increases hit points and decreases construction time.
The provision of shelter is one of the basic necessities of life, in addition to food and clothing. Shelter increased in importance when humans expanded their range farther away from the equator in the wake of the receding ice sheets and into climates of wide seasonal variation. Growing human populations quickly occupied the few natural shelters available in these areas. The provision of man-made shelter made existence in challenging and variable climates possible. Without houses, year-round populations could not have increased beyond minimums.
