Here is a view of the interior of the pigeon hole complex rooms. As you can see they are fairly small. families usually lived within this space, and it was more of a space for sleeping and eating than for communal gatherings as our homes are currently. You have to remember that the mayan people were also much smaller than we are today, so the spatial dimension of the homes are modeled as such. Another quick fact; the mayan people slept on beds that usually consisted of a stone slab covered by layers of animal skins or plants. When a member of the household died they were buried under the slab that was their bed, and then the room would be used by the next member of the family. Archeologists discovered this fairly recently when excavated the perimeter of a mayan household, and they exhumed a number of graves in the process.
