    A house is a single family dwelling, a home is any dwelling which a person or family feels is their hearth.

    Not a teacher.


    House is an emotionally neutral word: it just refers to a particular type of building.

    Home is used personally: it is the place that somebody lives in, and can express the idea of emotional attachment to a place.


    Compare:

    There are some horrible new houses in our village.

    I lived there for six years,but I never really felt it was my home.
