Okay, a few RULES for this thread.
This is meant to be a housing block library so...

Please limit your replies to posting your favorite block with a text description. Please don't reply just to say 'nice block' or to ask how the walker will make it all the way around. If there is an obvious error with a block, please e-mail the poster and let them fix it.

It would be nice to have an uncluttered thread of everyone's blocks without a lot of chatter or discussion.

Nuff said. Any format is great, Glyphy or other picture form.

Discussion on this thread has a sister thread called
Discussion Thread for Favourite Housing Blocks

Please use it for questions or comments regarding the blocks you see posted here. Thanks

With this I create a serpentine. Just continue the path to the left and attach a new one of these. Up left down right up left etc. _||_|

The infirmary and fountain walk all the way up and down (this has to be faced North East ↗ ). One fountain and infirmary can be of use for up to three of these (11.600 people).

We use the backdoor function of agoras. Though Granaries and storehouse must be connected to main road.

This can hold up to 20 per column, 80 in total with ONE single agora. 80x60=4800 people. I could only draw 13 due to gliph space limitation.

In poseidon one row of white obelisk between houses will be enough for appeal. In Zeus you need two garden or column.

North row goes to Granary and storehouse (16 get fleece 16 get oil).

Besides the podium there should be a theather.

You can add a gymnasium but only the stadium walker will do all the way up and down

one of my favorite blocks (a seneter variant)gets around one of the pitfalls of the standard huge block, namely, that it *is* a block. a road block that is. time and time again I have found that if the space is tight for your big block, I cut off the outside road in a single spot and an hour later discover that the reason that my temple is taking so long, or one of my blocks is starving is because there is a long path around my housing block. This design adds a thru path. Two in fact. I've also experimented with this block, and on lower difficulty you can pot a theater,podium, and gymnasium on the threw roads and force culture walkers threw three of these blocks stacked vertically. Any way no one has posted recently on here, so I'm posting this.

I think the advantage of this block lies in combining many houses, with compact design around two monuments. Those alone take care of most inner houses' appeal. The outer ones are nicely lined up (on 3 out of four sides anyway) and can use the palace, or sanctuaries. Or boulevards, although the absence of them or avenues means it can be used on all adventure steps. It is also easy to obtain the monuments, as pop. 1000 comes very easy and with a single monument pop 2000 also comes pretty easy.

84 townhouses = 5040 people

Notes:
1. College is outside the block
2. There has to be a stadium somewhere in the city
3. The block need city-wide stadium coverage
4. Only works when the block faces southeast direction

My first post here, sorry for my bad English.
I came back to this game after a long time, and I have to admit this old game is so addictive.
I tried to improve the housing block and came up to this. 84 townhouses with one agora service in a small area of land (26x26). Using the fountain and infirmary trick, I can extend the house block to the distance that agora peddler can walk. Geez!

This house block is very stable, even on Olympia difficulty. Otherwise, the layout is ugly as hell and not symmetric as I planned to, but it works.

Update: There seems to be a problem with precious 10 points city-wide stadium bonus that the city need to be covered with competitors. In short, you just need to put the stadium somewhere near a gym and make sure it working. Boom... Profit! I believe this housing block can be tweaked into 88, or even 90 houses variation.

Notes:
1. Additional Maintenance Office at the back
2. There has to be a stadium somewhere in the city
3. The stadium needs to be working all the time
4. Only works in southeast direction (the block's exit faces SE direction)
5. There's a variation for northeast direction
*The block can reach 90 houses if you remove the tax office
