I have translated the Dutch word gebouw click to
  hear - 2 as 'building,' but it does not mean exactly the same. It is only used for larger constructions: speaking Dutch, I wouldn't call a huis click to
  hear ('house') a gebouw.
(het) hout click to hear 'wood' - (de) baksteen click to hear 'brick' (plural: bakstenen click to hear 2) - (het) cement click to hear 'mortar, cement' - (het) beton click to hear 2 'concrete' - builders
The Dutch word flat click to
  hear comes from English of course. It means both a high-rise (or mid-rise) apartment building, and an apartment in a building like that. The diminutive flatje click to
  hear is only used for the apartment. Dutch also has the word apartement click to
  hear - but it is not often used.
Sounding the same as flats, there is a Dutch word flets click to
  hear that means 'pale, washed-out color.'
The Dutch word for 'skyscraper' is wolkenkrabber click to
  hear 2 which literally translates as 'clouds-scratcher.'
(het) schuurtje click to hear - a small shed, like in a yard
