@Faith, thanks for the comment and everything in between:) I'm always very appreciative Faith, many blessings dear friend:)

@Frank, certainly! Dream interpretation sparks my interest, not only in symbolism, but learning if dreams are a warning or how dreams can be perceived.

@Rajan, thanks for everything. House dreams are really complex in their interpretation. Think about it, everything that are house is. Our house is a symbol of our life, a symbol of protection, comfort, ect. Even every room can have specific meaning pointing back to your waking life.

Very interesting read. Though I was aware that dreams had a meaning I never thought a single dream could had so many different interpretations depending on the different locations within the same premises.
