Bith or upper class were relatively prosperous than deprived class (Dome , now word is unconstitutional). Bith had ground plus first floor stone houses roofed by grey flat stones. Dom had ground floor house only. Prosperous villagers had Tibari type house.
People used to keep domestic animals in ground floor (Ubar, Obari). When there was need for rooms, citizens used to add ground floor room with old house or ground plus first floor. Many villagers used to have huts in forest where they also stay .
