Home or House or Building?

To me my home is not a building with no life… it lives with us, for us. It sheds some tiles from the roof once in awhile, it pops nails when the temperature goes below -20 degrees celsius, it loses its luster if not washed properly, it ticks and tocks at night and even sometimes receives some unaccounted guests that scritch and scratch. A few years back, we rented a summer house and we left our home for a period of two months, and when we came back, it looked so lonely. Do you see your house as a living entity or is it just a building with four walls? I would really like to know some of your thoughts…
