Located on the second floor, this typical loft provided sleeping space for the family. The bed is a wooden frame with rope stretched over it. The mat over the bed provided some additional comfort. In poorer families, people often slept on mats on the floor. If people traveled, their mats could be taken along. The walls are plastered with a mixture of mud and straw.
