homeA home is a dwelling place used as a permanent or semi-permanent residence for an individual, family, household or several families together. It is usually a house or apartment, but some people live in other types of homes, like a caravan, houseboat, cabin, or yurt. Homes typically provide areas and facilities for sleeping, preparing food, eating and hygiene.
