The house of everyone is to him as his castle and fortress, as well as for his defense against injury and violence as for his repose. Sir Edward Coke 1552-1634
They say:”There is no place like home”.
Do you know the difference between English and Russian house?
In the ancient times rich Englishmen built big stone houses with high towers and thick walls around it . It was more a fortress than a house which can defeat not only the Lord’s family, but his servants and their families too in the case of danger.
But poor peasants and workers used to live in small gloomy cold huts. We can see the same situation in Russia too and thus and there noble people live in beautiful houses and palaces.
There are some types of houses in England:
A semi-detached house is joined to another house on one side. Such house is usually for two families.
A detached house A detached house is not connected to other houses. It has a garage near it and often has a small garden behind it.
Terraced houses are several houses that are joined together in a line
A block of flats is a large building with a lot of flats in it.
Most people live in small houses built close together joined to another on one side only by one wall in common. They are called semi-detached. They are usually consist of two floors. British prefer to say upstairs & downstairs instead of ground floor & first floor. By the way do you know how to count the floors in your house?

Let’s have a look in a typical English House. There is a hall, a living or a sitting room and a kitchen downstairs.
There are bedrooms, bathrooms and a nursery for children upstairs.
. Almost in every English house there is a fireplace, it is usually in the sitting room. They think that electricity is cleaner but a coal fire is more homely.
Around a house there is a front garden & back garden. The front garden is a smooth grass lawn, you can see also there a few flower beds.
Back garden is more useful, but less pretty than front one. Vegetables, potatoes, cabbage, cauliflowers, peas & lettuce are grown there.
This house is a dream for common Russian, but it is a bit simpler in Russia. The majority of Russian population lives in blocks of flats.
There are several flats on one floor. Usual Russian flat consists of entrance hall, two or three rooms, kitchen, toilet & bathroom which are not very large. In front of a house there is a children’s playground.
Some people live in private houses or cottages with gardens around. I think that living in private house or cottage is more comfortable because you have a large area at your disposal, you don’t have a quarrel with your neighbors when you make a noise or when you listen to the music in high volume, in summer you can get a sunburn in your garden.
Depending on personality & financial situation people make their house & home.
I live in a private house with my parents and my grandparents. Our house is big and comfortable. There are two floors in it.
We have a big hall, a living room, a dining room, two bedrooms, a kitchen, a toilet and a bathroom.
I’d like to end my story with a famous English proverb:EAST OR WEST HOME IS BEST
