A building for human habitation, especially one that consists of a ground floor and one or more upper storeys is known as our House or Home.
The basic utility of a house is, "the house of every man is to him,
his castle and fortress, as well for his defense against injury and
violence and for his repose".
House may be defined as the structure made up of brick and mortar. It
is also described as enclosure having four walls, to provide shelter to
human beings and animals from the adversities of environment and
ravages of weather. It provides security from wild animals and helps to
save property and valuables from thieves and robbers.
