‘The home is a safe space.’ ‘The home is where the heart is.’ ‘It feels good to leave home and it feels even better to come back.’ There is much sentimental rhetoric about the importance of a home. But what makes your house a home? Some people would say it is the fact that the ones we love and cherish are there for us. Some might say it is the protection from the elements ‘outside.’ Nevertheless, whether you are a romantic or a practical person, it can be submitted that everyone is in need of a home.
