construct houses primarily as dwelling-spaces for human
habitation and pets. Such dwellings generally feature enclosing
walls and a roof to protect against precipitation, wind, heat,
cold and intruders. Animals may often live inside a house as
well, both domestic pets and "unwanted" animals (such
as mice living in the walls). The word "house" may also
apply to a building provided to shelter animals, especially
within a zoo.
house often provides a permanent residence for a family or for a
similar social unit. When occupying a house routinely as a
dwelling, English-speaking people may call this building their
"home". People may leave their house most of the day
for work and recreation, but typically return 'home", to
their house, at least for sleeping.
house generally has at least one entrance, usually in the form of
a door or a portal — but some early houses, such as those
at Catal Huyuk, used roofs and ladders for access. Many houses
have back doors that open into what some English-speakers call
the backyard and others the back garden. When built in
appropriate climates, houses may have any number of windows to
let in natural sunlight and to provide views of the outside.
