This is what it is thought a house would look in the Can Hasan, 5000 BC. I found site about this subject (as a starting point, it seems): A late Neolithic settlement dating from 6500 BCE, inhabited into the Chalcolithic period.

On a related site is says: Geography and Environment: The mounds Can Hasan I and III; which are at a close distance to the foothills of the Taurus and take place in a fertile plain; are prehistoric settlements. Can Hasan II is dated to the later periods [French 1962b:27]. Mound no I of can Hasan; which is known as Canasun in Kiepert and later as Canason; measures 360x280x5 m [French 1962a:36].
Destruction Details: A dirt road passes on eastern part of the mound; the trenches are being used for garbage dumping. The mound has been encircled by barbed wire [TAYEx 14.8.2002].
