House 2 is comparable with house 1 in terms of the wall structure, although the internal coating has a high absorption capacity.

The high thermal capacity offers protection from summer overheating. The interior plaster means there is little fluctuation of the inner surface temperature. Due to its interior plaster, house 1 has a much higher moisture penetration coefficient than house 2. The substantial improvement in the humidity caused by this was also verified experimentally within the research houses.
