In ancient times every man of wealth was supposed to have the following six houses: (a) The heiau, house of worship where the idols were kept; (b) The mua, the eating house for the husband, and distinct from the eating house of the woman. Husband and wife never ate together. The mua was tabu to the wife; (c) The noa, the separate house of the wife, which was free for her husband to enter. The woman ate in the hale noa at certain periods; (d) Hale aina, the eating house of the wife; (e) The kua, the house where the wife beat out tapa; (f) Hale pea, the house of separation for the wife during the periods of her infirmity.

They had other houses and for other purposes, but these six were considered necessary for every person in respectable standing. See the above words in their places.
