The houses were not comfortable as we would think. The beds were wood slats with a head rest of straw.. Richer people had larger size homes and better beds with furniture. The houses had flat roofs to stand on to get off the hot sand and some had windows. I could not have made it sleeping on a hard surfaced bed. Well, actually, I quess I would'nt have a choice.The women did wash at the river, and the people would use the Nile for their gardens, houses and living. I can imagine my mom having to wash our clothes at the river. She hates how much laundry we have with a washer/dryer just downstairs! The people had gardens of tree's of all kinds. They had them in boxes. I quess one thing the Egyptians did not have to worry about that we do was yard work. But, I would not trade their lifes for mine today!Egyptian people lived with little and had to use dirt, sand, mud to make their buildings. They would use and type covers to color the houses. The people ate vegetation of all kinds.
