House or Home?

House describes a particular type of building.
Home is the place where you live and feel that you belong to.

We use the noun house to refer to a building:
- They’re building two new houses at the end of our street.

When we refer to being at someone’s house, we can leave out the word house and use at + possessive or at + the definite article + possessive:
- We stayed overnight at Helen's. (at Helen's house)

We use home in a more personal and emotional way to refer to where someone lives. The noun home does not usually refer to the building. We often use home with the preposition at:
- It’s not very nice but it’s my home.
- Why don’t you phone him now? I think he's at home.
