Wherever people live, there have to be structured to protect them from natural forces. We call them houses although they vary like the people who live in them. They are of different shapes and sizes and are made of different building materials. Dreams of a house have always been a symbol of security and protection, in every culture, for many centuries. We often dream about other people and their houses as well, so the meaning and interpretation of such dreams can vary.
10 interpretations of dreams about a house
Dream about a house
Generally, your dreams carry a hidden meaning that can give you a lot of insight into life, only if they are interpreted correctly.
