Do you feel anything different about the words “house” versus “home”?

Is it simple for you to define both?

Does it raise an emotion? I imagine for some of us, this could even be a triggering topic.

I personally think of a house as a building. A source of walls and a roof to provide protection from physical elements. It could be made of brick and mortar, wood--if you inhabit somewhere somewhat tropical, your house might be made of bamboo or something much lighter in density. It’s designed to be a physical shelter. Some are quite extravagant and have all of the latest bells and whistles. Others, very simple and extremely bare and basic.
