What is it to you that makes a house a home?
For me, a house is a home if it has a sense of security around it.
For me, ownership/stewardship is a part of that, having family around is another part, having tools and resources is another part.
Another part is security of community – having relationships with neighbours and wider community.
On a daily basis, having things in their place, so that I know where to find stuff is really important to my sense of belonging. If someone else is constantly moving stuff, that takes away from my sense of belonging, of home.
Another part is having things around that work for me – like a comfortable bed, and a chair, and a favourite cup and favoured food.
So for me, a home is a complex weave of many sets of relationships and history – as I suspect it is for most others.
