Homes in the New World

 The homes built by the first English settlers in America were small single room houses with thatched roofs.  Inside the single roomed home was a fireplace used for cooking and to keep the house warm during the winter.  The early settlers did not have a lot of furniture.  They may have had a bench to sit on, a small table and some chests where they stored items such as clothes.  The typical bed was a straw mattress.
