What is the Meaning & Definition of housing

A dwelling is that physical space, usually a building, whose main reason for will be the offer refuge and rest, thanks to the rooms that holds in its interior, the people and everything they bring with them such as your belongings and personal property. When I mentioned about the shelter, it was because housing, in addition to providing a space for rest and protect our most immediate belongings, also serves to protect us from the inclemencies of weather and any other type of natural threat that can affect our peaceful existence in case of having to live outdoors and luck.
Since man is man has had this need to find a refuge for what we said, keep their belongings, have a good quality of life that is not affected by the physical health disorders that can result from having to live in the street and also, in primitive super moments, to protect his family from the wild beasts that were loose. The caves, were usually shelters most used and common men in ancient times. The definitive settlement of primitive nomadic peoples originated in the discovery of agriculture, first, and livestock, then. The need to reside in a fixed place gave way immediately to the first housing development final, different from the transitional shelter or tent. The logical importance of water in the life of people plunged into the first permanent homes were built in the proximity of rivers and lakes.
On the other hand, although sometimes we pay more attention to other more trivial matters, without doubt, the comfort, tranquillity and the receipt which provides us to know that we have at our disposal a dwelling will be vital when it comes to our future personal development and professional, since it is highly tested, only in harmony, the human being achieves excellent results.
One of the major issues to consider when it comes to the construction of a House will be the weather that characterizes and is observed in the area or region we inhabit. For example if we live in a place prone to big winds or hurricanes, the houses must be built from and following a series of essential requirements of security and obviously with materials extremely resistant to this type of contexts.
The same occurs with the regions subject to telluric weather, such as earthquakes or volcanic eruptions. It is not incidental to warn that most of the first definitive settlements of history took place in large valleys crossed by rivers, in which essential resources (water, food and security) were easier to obtain.
In modern times, the predilection of the people by the urban environment has motivated, on the one hand, the construction of more housing in less space, as it is the case with large buildings, but, on the other hand, there is a strong housing shortage in most of the great cities of the third world. This phenomenon has precipitated a growth of precarious homes in Latin America, with special emphasis on Argentina and Brazil.
