The House returns in Age of Empires III with the same characteristics as those in Age of Mythology. Each House supports ten population and have a build limit of twenty. In contrast to Age of Empires II, Houses are specifically available to European and Aztec civilizations.
In addition to the individual designs for each civilization, there are four additional architectural variations corresponding to the compass rose, known as House (West), House (Medium) and House (East). The special Manor House (unique to the British) spawns a new Settler every time one is built.
- Note: All houses can have their hitpoints improved by using the appropriate "Improved Buildings" card for that civilization.

"Houses in the New World displayed varying styles, from the Cape-style houses of New England to the claim shanties in the West to the ranch houses in Texas and Mexico. Often the house style reflected the cultural heritage of the people who settled the land.
Of course, Native Americans also had a wide variety of housing, including the tipis of the Plains tribes and the wattle-and- daub houses of the Cherokee."

For life in their relatively dry climate, the Aztec built their homes as simple structures made from adobe (a mixture of water and dirt), with a thatched roof."
