Bach House (Eisenach)
A HOUSE is a building that functions as a home , ranging from simple dwellings such as rudimentary huts of nomadic tribes and the improvised shacks in shantytowns to complex, fixed structures of wood, brick, concrete or other materials containing plumbing, ventilation and electrical systems. Houses use a range of different roofing systems to keep precipitation such as rain from getting into the dwelling space. Houses may have doors or locks to secure the dwelling space and protect its inhabitants and contents from burglars or other trespassers. Most conventional modern houses in Western cultures will contain one or more bedrooms and bathrooms , a kitchen or cooking area, and a living room . A house may have a separate dining room , or the eating area may be integrated into another room. Some large houses in North America have a recreation room

Rooming House
A BOARDING HOUSE is a house (frequently a family home) in which lodgers rent one or more rooms for one or more nights, and sometimes for extended periods of weeks, months, and years. The common parts of the house are maintained, and some services, such as laundry and cleaning, may be supplied. They normally provide "room and board ," that is, at least some meals as well as accommodation. A "lodging house," also known in the United States
United States
as a "rooming house," may or may not offer meals. Lodgers legally only obtain a licence to use their rooms, and not exclusive possession, so the landlord retains the right of access.

Garage (residential)
A residential GARAGE (/ˈɡærɪdʒ/ or /ɡæˈrɑːʒ/ ) is a walled, roofed structure for storing a vehicle or vehicles that may be part of or attached to a home ("attached garage"), or a separate outbuilding or shed ("detached garage"). Residential garages typically have space for one or two cars , although three-car garages are used. When a garage is attached to a house, the garage typically has an entry door into the house. Garages normally have a wide door which can be raised to permit the entry and exit of a vehicle, and then closed to secure the vehicle. A garage protects a vehicle from precipitation, and, if it is equipped with a locking garage door, it also protects the vehicle(s) from theft and vandalism. Garages are also used for a variety of projects including painting, woodworking and assembling of projects. Some garages have an electrical mechanism to automatically open or close the garage door when the homeowner presses a button on a small remote control

Group (sociology)
In the social sciences , a SOCIAL GROUP has been defined as two or more people who interact with one another, share similar characteristics, and collectively have a sense of unity. Other theorists disagree however, and are wary of definitions which stress the importance of interdependence or objective similarity. Instead, researchers within the social identity tradition generally define it as "a group is defined in terms of those who identify themselves as members of the group". Regardless, social groups come in a myriad of sizes and varieties. For example, a society can be viewed as a large social group

List Of Domesticated Animals
This page gives a list of domestic animals, also including a list of animals which are or may be undergoing the process of domestication and animals that have an extensive relationship with humans beyond simple predation. This includes species which are semi-domesticated, undomesticated but captive-bred on a commercial scale, or commonly wild-caught, at least occasionally captive-bred, and tameable . In order to be considered fully domesticated, most species have undergone significant genetic , behavioural and/or morphological changes from their wild ancestors; while others have been changed very little from their wild ancestors despite hundreds or thousands of years of potential selective breeding . A number of factors determine how quickly any changes may occur in a species, however, there isn't always a desire to improve a species from its wild form

Proto-Germanic
PROTO-GERMANIC (abbreviated PGMC; German Urgermanisch; also called COMMON GERMANIC, German Gemeingermanisch) is the reconstructed proto-language of the Germanic branch of the Indo-European languages . Proto-Germanic developed from pre-Proto-Germanic into three branches during the first half of the first millennium of the Common Era : West Germanic , East Germanic and North Germanic , which however remained in contact over a considerable time, especially the Ingvaeonic languages (including English ), which arose from West Germanic dialects which remained in continued contact with North Germanic. A defining feature of Proto-Germanic is the completion of Grimm\'s law , a set of sound changes that occurred between its status as a dialect of Proto-Indo-European and its gradual divergence into a separate language
