House

A structure serving as a dwelling for one or several families. A place of residence, an abode. The design of the house runs the gamut of nearly every design style that has ever existed. Although there are many reasons to preserve a particular house or group of houses, other external development factors usually dictate the ultimate fate of those in danger.

House

(dreams)
It is common to dream about houses. They usually symbolize our emotional and psychological selves. All of your experiences, stages of development, and parts of your conscious and unconscious life may be represented by that house. The house may be representing issues concerning a particular dilemma in your life, or it may be more general and comprehensive. Either way, if you pay attention to the details in this dream, you may learn a thing or two about yourself.
