What type of struture is a house between a mass, shell and frame structure?

This has to do with science and structures. I want to know if a house is either a mass, shell or a frame structure.

    Simplistically, houses would be a type of shell structure.  In a more detailed way, houses are a mix and match of shell, frame, and mass structures:

    Shell- walls provide strength to empty rooms

    Frame- Load bearing walls

    Mass- Foundation of the house is (near) solid concrete.
