Senate: Each state gets 2 senators, no more, no less. House of Reps: Total of 435 representatives, each state gets a certain number based on how many people live in that state.

The convention split Congress into two houses, bicameral, in a compromise to please both those who favored state power independent of size and state power according to population. Due to this, a state is granted seats in the H. R. according to the most recent census whereas each state has two senators. This compromise was perhaps what made the US Constitution able to be ratified in some states. Another advantage of a bicameral legislative branch is that each house checks one another.

There is no typical Roman house. Roman houses, like our present day houses, came in all sizes. The size depended upon the owner's wealth, just as today.
