If the owner changes, but the tent of the house like that, it remains (after the owner's death shall dwell with the son, and then grandson, etc.). If the house burns down, the house can wait from his friend in the barn until the owners can not build a new one. If burn the whole village, the houses disperse to other villages.

Brownies can be prichinoi more serious and scary poltregeist phenomena, like the appearance of water, levitation of objects and the appearance of an open fire. It is believed that such symptoms indicate a strong dissatisfaction with the brownie.

Also, this phenomenon was explained by the appearance in the house of another house (or several). It was assumed that in case of disaster (e.g., fire) one house can shelter other, but sometimes they do not get along and begin to make noise.
