Vučedolians lived in a type of house with no earlier model, constructed like a large basket. The whole construction apart from the roof used branches – generally up to 5 cm thick – which were driven into the earth in rows every 25 to 30 cm. Wicker was woven into them horizontally. To keep the weaving continuous, there could not be corners. This skeleton was coated on both sides with up to 20 cm of liquid loess, if the house was in the Danube region, or clay in non-loess areas. The roof was covered with a layer of reeds. The floor was of solidly compacted loess or loam, scraped flat with a shiny surface like ceramics.
Houses have one, two or three rooms. To keep cold air out, entrances face the south or west. One-room and particularly two-room houses generally have the door on the narrow side of the house. The entrance to a three-room house is in the middle room, facing the south; passages lead to the side rooms. In most traditional Pannonian-area houses this layout still exists today, as a clear mark of the Indo-European tradition.
Like the houses, Vučedol furniture was also woven of wicker, as shown by small ceramic models of furniture—chairs, tables, and beds.
In some Vučedol houses, traces of scrape marks from opening and closing the door can be seen in the floor near the entrance, showing that the door swung and was 80 cm wide. This prehistoric standard size has remained until today.
