How did peasant house look like in medieval age? How many years would it last without repairs?
Peasant houses varied in their styles and materials from region to region. In wooded areas, houses were usually made out of wood, thatch, and mud. In other, more rocky regions, hoses were made with stones that were then given a straw roof. Without repairs, these houses would not last a long time, probably less than five years.
These houses were extremely basic and rudimentary, with its main priority being to keep the inhabitants alive rather than to provide comfort. In general these houses would have to be maintained and repaired constantly, particularly to ensure there was no damp or mold in the roof or walls.
