There are no regular houses in Antarctica, but there are manned research stations that have comfortable living quarters with bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom facilities, living areas, offices, generator rooms and communication rooms. Expeditioners and scientists also stay in different forms of accommodations depending on their field activity. Some of the field accommodations include tents, shelters and huts equipped with food rations, lighting and cookers.
