The Meaning of Houses In Dreams

Houses in dreams are the symbolic representation of the dreamer’s sense of self.  No matter what other imagery or circumstances may present themselves in a dream, a house should be considered an unconscious expression of your sense of personal identity.  This also applies to any home-like dwelling, such as an apartment, hotel room, trailer, grass hut or any of the possibilities of “home” that exist in the imagination.

The perspective or view of the house takes on specific meaning.  The front of a house connects to the persona, the part of you that you show the world.  The back is what is private or hidden.  What you discover on the inside reflects various, compartmentalized aspects of yourself.  Side views or alternate angles may connect to presenting yourself in the world in a limited, partial or inaccurate fashion.

The size, style, condition and reflection of abundance levels will play a key role in interpreting this symbol in a dream.  You will need to consider both the feelings evoked by the house in the dream itself, as well as what comes up for you when comparing it to your actual, waking-life home.  Whatever shades of meaning you glean from your dream must be interpreted as reflecting an unconscious expression of self.

A mansion on a grand scale may indicate a sense of opening yourself up to greater levels of abundance.  This could also be revealing a level of inappropriate grandiosity, depending on your current levels of esteem.  Conversely, a moment in life that feels constraining and steeped in lack might evoke a dream image of a house that is more hovel than home.  Yet, this same image could be a symbolic representation of deeper levels of humility emerging within you.

A new house might mean a new sense of self is on the horizon, or needs to be.  An older, dilapidated model reflects feelings in sync with such a visual image.  Adding an extension indicates such an expansion may be occurring on a personal level.  A house on fire is expressing that powerful levels of transformation are afoot.  Whatever the Dreaming Lens is offering you about a house should be incorporated into an interpretation of your sense of self at the time of the dream.

If you dream of a specific home from an earlier time in your life, you are looking at the person you are today as a direct result of what was going on back then.  This can refer to occurrences in the environment associated with the home and the people in it, as well as developmental issues based on your age at the time, which brings us to our next concept.

    i dreamt that i was trying to kill a snake in my mother’s house (the entry to the house, which is on the lower floor). i thought i had killed it but it kept coming for me, even though i had gone upstairs. i killed it again and thought i had killed it but again, it came for me, almost as if the snake was mocking me. there were others in the house at the time, possibly my mum but i am not sure. what does this mean?

    The most universal meaning of snakes connect to change and transformation (snakes shed their skins when they outgrow them). Killing a snake may be about trying to kill of something you desire to shift in your life as it relates to your sense of self (houses can relate to your sense of self). Since it is your mother’s house in the dream, we know that you are having thoughts of who you are today as a result of your relationship with your real life mother. That you feel the snake is somehow mocking you is key – what patterns of behavior are so much a part of you that your desire to change them may be met with a mocking insistence that you are powerless over them?

    Dear mr.Lennox,
    my dream was: ” finding myself in the house of my ex-belover, his house was very big, shiny, with white furniture, full of crystal, large dorms,and several wc .” i was afraid, don’t want to saw him inside.

    This house represents your sense of self as it relates to your ex. It is expressing the ambivolence between seeing the gifts and benefits of the relationship (the big, beautiful house) and the fear that connecting to what you can think of as the good parts of the relationship mixed with the fear of connecting with him and the relationship itself (fear that he will be inside). The dream indicates that the process of seperation is continuing well.

    Dear Dr. Lennox,
    I have recurring dreams of the inside of houses. There are several different houses that come up over and over. When I have the dream about one, I am living in it at the time and comfortable, but come across rooms that I forgot I had….in the dreams, I enjoy the rooms and want to spend more time in them–and am surprised that I forgot they were there and how much I enjoy them. In one house, there is a cozy family room with an atrium filled with neglected, but growing plants attached to it. In another there is a large and elegant bedroom, and in another there is a storage area and bathroom that I want to fix-up and remodel. I’ve always wondered about the significance of the rooms and how I could forget they were there when I enjoy them so much.
    Thank you,

    Hey, Last night I dreamed that I was in a house with several other people ijncluding my two young-adult children. At some point, a female stranger put a bomb in one of the rooms and then slipped out. I did not see it, but I was aware of the impending explosion. I hid behind an open door in the little triangle it creates when pulled against the wall, to protect myself from the blast. When it went off, it was sort of like an earthquake. The upper floor was severaly damaged, and it sort of slumped down on top of the lower floor. The place was still standing, but it was obviously a goner. I remember specifically looking down the stairs from the upstairs landing to the front entry, and seeing the stairs blocked by debris so that I could not go down the stairs. I also remember trying to convince my children to pack up a few important things and to move outside for safety, and that we would have to leave the house. But they did not seem to understand or want to comply.

    Hi Dr Lennox,

    I dreamt that I went to my new partner’s open plan studio/apartment, the door was unlocked, and upon entering I found my wallet which was lying on the bed. This place was not the place he lived in, it was like his second place..

    The place was very clean, very quiet, very peaceful. A lot of windows all around 3 walls… (it was very early in the morning, perhaps before sunrise) which were covered by curtains. People were trying to peer inside and I felt protective to shield them from seeing inside.

    On the desk, I found his a card with his name on it (appeared to be a license?) and then found one with my name on it as well.

    Upon my way out, I was walking down the footpath and he drove past in the opposite direction to where I was walking (on the way to work- I assumed he also knew I was going to his apartment) He waved and I caught glimpse of myself in the mirror (didnt like what I saw but continued on)

    I have had several dreams about this man.. .I am trying to explain what’s going on and if you can help that would be really helpful.

    Thank you in advance, Hanh

    Hi Dr L

    I recently dreamt I was living in a house with an ex boyfriend whom I have not heard from in a couple of weeks. The house was located on the water (ocean) and surrounded by mansions/semi palaces (a neighborhood I know very well). The house itself was small and boxy, a pinkish salmon hue and had an arch doorway made of jewelry hues and precious stones In the dream I was showing a third person the view from the backyard and water (whom I felt was a realtor congratulating me on finding this little gem) . This person leaves and it’s the ex and I enjoying the sunset when I point to a Gatsby-ish house diagonal to us and I tell him I will be going to live there soon. He smiles and nods and says “I know” and we walk back inside arm in arm. We were very very happy. The house I pointed to was magnificent, white, well lit, and enormous. As we go back into our quaint little home I realize he had left the door unlocked and that strangers were inside the house. They were hiding in my closets, behind the shower curtains , they were filthy and drug users. I was so furious and I began yelling violently but as I’d force a group out I would find more of them inside the house. They wouldn’t leave so I had to.

    I had a dream that a crew of people showed up to my house and did some type of extreme makeover to my home. I’m not sure if they tore it down and started from scratch, but when they were don’t I had a huge mansion type house that was fully decorated as well as paid in full. I was also given a new car as well

    I have a recurring dream about the inside of my friend’s house from when I was about age 8-14. Several times a week for a while now.

    Hi! I have dreamed of the same house. The first few times it was in my dream, it belonged to an old friend’s mother and it was huge, old and nice upstairs. I got lost and ended up in a basement area that was haunted and I couldn’t figure out how to get back upstairs. Last night, I dreamed of the same house and my boyfriend and I were contemplating renting it. I knew the house in my deeam and I kept thinking he and I would need to take the basement and our kids room upstairs because I knew it was haunted but I didn’t say anything and I thought I would be ok to be down there if he were with me. Any thoughts?

    Hi Dr Lennox
    In my dream I saw a White House with a bank logo on it (nedbank homes), I saw the house from it’s side. It looked clean, immaculate grounds and in good condition, also looked like it was in an estate type of residential area with plush houses, however, within the dream a little boys whom I couldn’t see, but hear asked his mother “how much is it going to cost” the mom, whom I also couldn’t see, but hear, says ” it’ll cost R 250 000 to fix” what does this dream mean?

    I constantly have dreams about houses and they’re all almost the same. It starts out with me and my family about to move into a new house- so we start looking through it. They’re always big houses, beautiful on the outside. And I’m in my late teens in these dreams. Sometimes me and my little brother stray from my parents and wander around. Sometimes it’s just me wandering around. There’s all these twists and turns, secret pathways, and rooms where you’d think there’d be nothing- it’s a very complex infrastructure. I always seem to end up in the basement – or on my way to it but the closer I approach the more scared I feel. My heart starts pounding unbearably and I feel like I’m about to happen upon something I really don’t want to see- something that could scar me for life. At that point I wake up. I always feel scared, sad, or worried after waking up.

    As early as I can remember I have dreamed about a large old house. I sneak into the kitchen . Climb up into the top of one of the large old cabinets there is a trap door there. I go up into the attic . There are people in the house living there , but it is my house though I have not lived in the house for a long time. I can see the people though cracks in the ceiling. I can not let them see me. The attic has very many rooms filled with wonderful old things that are mine. Sometime it ends there other times I find my self wondering through an Old victorian cemetery iu is huge and the graves are covered with large markers, Angels, large crosses and willow trees. It is very large and I wander through it for hours searching for a certain grave but don’t know who it belongs to. I am very tired but have to keep wandering. I am 71 and have had this dream since I was a toddler. Sometimes it comes frequently than sometime it may be a year or more.

    Dear doctor,
    In my dream I am in a big house that is full of people I know. I feel like my family just moved in the dream but I don’t see them. I am upset and can’t find my room and everytime I get close it’s blocked.

    For 15 yrs we lived in a house and spent an unhappy childhood there because of our grandmother. Its been 9 yrs since we separated from her, moved to our own new house and we are very happy and satisfied here. My sister and I always see the old house in most of our dreams, my sis more than I. The people we see are mostly our own family and friends most of the time in present circumstances. But always in the old house. Please can you shed some light on the meaning of this?

    Hi Dr. Michael. Love your website and regularly come visit to interpret my dreams.

    Today I dreamt about a house I used to live in when I was a teenager (now 35) on the beach. It was a house where i had good memories, a place where I made good friends and had lots of fun, but also harsh ones when I used to live with my abusive stepfather. The house was still full of our stuff (big family) like cloths, pictures of us and furniture. it was a bit messy but not much. I was with a girl, who I recently met, and don’t know her very well, (although I do fancy her a bit, but feeling not mutual). I was going around the house and we were in a good mood, playful and surprised with all the stuff. I was thinking, can’t believe we left all this behind, and was grabbing stuff to take with me, like cloths (that I only bought years after but were there laying around) I found some stuff in a room outside the house where we used to keep the gardening stuff, it was kind of a small basement. I remember being mainly outside in the garden in a playful mood with my friend asking her if she wanted to take some picture frames with her. The overall sensation was a pleasant one as I was with her and happy to see my old house. There was also some kart racing involved but can’t remember when where or why, but it was fun…

    last week I also dreamt about a house. I was staying in this amazing holiday house my grandfather had in the beach. Its a very modern house, big with a big garden and pool. I did live there for a very brief part of my childhood, but don’t remember much. So don’t really consider it my house but as a place we used to go for holidays with uncles and cousins as kids. I loved it but the house was sold when my grandfather died, when I was about 16. But in the dream I was sleeping in the living room, and people were taking the furniture away. The house was very clean and tidy but did not have much inside. I remember waking up in the living room and seeing strangers taking everything. I felt weird and slightly in shock.

    could you kindly give me your view of these dreams…?

    many thanks

    Love & Light

    I am Kate, I live in Uganda.
    I was a bit disturbed when tn I dream t that I and my family own a grass thatched house, but I was encouraging them to be patient since I had money, I would build a better house and thatch it with iron sheets and I had money to do it.
    Well, the sharing in here on the interpretation of a house in a dream, am getting an insight and by the guidance of the Holy Spirt, I will understand it all.

    God bless your ministry.

    I dream of a Appartment that belongs to me but I don’t stay there as I have another appartment. I occasionally go there and see if everything is fine. What bothers me is the level of minute details at which I see this. Like checking the AC, Fans, Lights, Balcony, rooms. To the extent I can see how the rooms are placed and

    I have a reoccurring dream for years now. It’s has multiple wooden houses stacked on top of each other. The houses have no rooves but are framed out. Any idea what this could mean?

    Hi I dreamt I bought a huge beautiful house

  28. Chris October 13, 2015 at 4:44 pm #

    I have dreamt about the same house many times. Although I have never seen the inside, I dreamt about it many times, only with different people in my dreams. The house seems round, with many windows and beautiful views of wilderness out of each. The décor is like of a modern/contemporary log cabin, very updated and very welcoming. The kitchen is on the south side, with a large living room on the north side with a huge deck. To the west is a stair case and when I climb the stairs, the house turns old. By this I mean the entire 2 and 3rd floors are so very elegant with architecture you would see in the late 1800’s/early 1900’s. Thick woods, carved and curved. Many rooms, but the top 2 floors lack furniture. Just old dust covered paintings and mantles. Unused and un touched. The 3 floor is just a single room with a small balcony with a view of the wilderness meeting the ocean. Nothing is destroyed or damaged or even worn, just very old with dust. When entering the upstairs I feel OK if it happens to be daylight in my dream, but at night the feeling of “Get OUT” becomes prominent. No evil feelings, just like I shouldn’t be there.

    Sorry, I never saw the OUTside of that house.

    Hi Dr. Lennox,
    Recently I have started seeing my old house and the locality a lot. Its been almost one and a half years since I have shifted to my new house. But I keep dreaming aboit my old house or the areas in that localities. My boyfriend who lives there , dumped me 3 months ago. I have been miserable since then. As the reasons he gave were somehow unacceptable to me and unfair as well. Is my subconcsious tryig to tell me that I have unresolved issues with him? Or what? Help me out :/

  31. George November 2, 2015 at 9:39 pm #

    Hello Dr. Lennox, Good afternoon.
    Just recently did I dream about my old house in the US. It was in perfect condition and I was warmly greeted by an old friend and the family that currently lives there. As we walked in the interior was amazing, sofas were comfortable, there was a huge kitchen and it was the same 2 story house I remembered (except for the few changes my mind happened to make to the house, like the furniture and size itself). The scene then switches to me going back to my old room, where I was greeted by a kind middle-aged woman. She apparently was the owner of my new home since she mentioned to me a specific area that she alone wanted for the house. It was just outside the window when I saw a big strong tree. My focus in that scene was on one specific branch. It was medium sized, thick, strong and the top end of it grew 3 smaller, but thick and strong, branches with no leaves that I can recall. I somehow recall seeing that branch in my lifetime, so I told her that I held a strong connection with it when I was younger. She then refers to the branch as “wild”, telling me that the word “wild” was spiritually used by her ancestors to refers to benevolent spirits and (I don’t know how) dark spirits which got over their darkness and wanted light. She then explained to me the process of the dark spirits which no longer wanted darkness, if not the light. This scene focused on my inner self, where there is a dark veil over me, darkness all around, and the only thing inside (under the dark veil) is me. She tells me they wait for the veil to fall in order to get into that light source (She did not mean possess the being, if not, be apart of the light). Once they got under the veil, I felt a course of energy go through my body. It tingled in a strange way but it felt good. That was all she could manage to tell me when I woke up on my bed. I immediately googled all I could find on the spiritual meaning of the word wild with no luck except for “Wild Spirit”. I look up meanings of trees, branches and I found very interesting meanings on many pages. But, in the house sense, I came to you and you alone…
    If you have any help on interpreting this, please respond when you can. I would very much appreciate your insight on this, hopefully we stay in touch.

    If you find it more comfortable to speak, my email is:
    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Hello Dr. Lennox,

    I had this dream of a house that I used to live in before I moved into my new house. When I was in the dream, I was in the middle of the house. The house was bright and yellow and very chipper. Then all of a sudden it turned dirty, gross, and the yellow paint that was once on the walls was a grayish brown and was chipping away from the walls. There was nothing in the room except for two doorways that lead out of the room to the kitchen or the living room, and a window. Then out of no where a doorway appears right next to the window. There was once a door there that lead down to the basement, but wasn’t actually there when I lived there. It was actually on the other side of the wall. I was never told where the doorway once was, but I somehow manages to dream about it. When I told my mom about this dream she was surprised when I told her about the door appearing there. She was basically the only one that knew where it was originally. But when that door opened it was completely dark no light shining in or from it, just complete darkness. Something reached out to me and grabbed me trying to take me down into the basement with it. While this was going on I heard screams from my deceased great-grandparents coming from upstairs of the house. They were yelling for me to come and help them. I tried to get to them but that something was holding me back. I began to pray because I was taught to pray when things were going bad. I screamed at the top of my lungs because I was so scared. I prayed until I felt nothing pulling on me and until I heard no screams. Then I woke up.
    This dream still haunts me to this day. I come from a religious family and they said that maybe I should take this as a sign, but I think that it might be something else. I am sixteen and my parents have been divorced since I was three. I used to live with my mother but she was abusive, verbally and physically. One day I snapped, and I now live with my Dad and he has custody of me .I have never been more happy! I still see and visit my mom every other week, but we still have some problems. I thought that maybe this would be because of some trauma that it unresolved from when I lived with my mom. But I have no clue. Hopefully you can help me! I hope you don’t take this as a joke from a punk kid, that is just messing around on your website, because this is real and I need answers. This is a real dream or should I say nightmare that I had and I really need some help!
    Thank you and I hope that you get back to me soon!

    I dreamt that a friend of ours gave a big house to us as a gift?! Some of her family members were in the new house living room? Also some of our family was
    Over to check out our new house . The house itself was very modern and it was almost all white , the kitchen counters were black but most of it was white and bright, but some rooms were still under construction. There was a bright white hallway and on one side there was a giant room that was under construction with both light purple and dark purple carpeting , I asked the two guys in there what where they remodeling it into and they said a dance room . ( PS btw i’ve been wanting to get into dance again , because I used to be in it when I was little ) can this be some type of sign?
    Anyways I started walking and called my cousin and told her about the dance studio they were building and , in my dream I supposdly was a famous YouTube star and people had been requesting a house tour , so since I had gotten a new house I was going to film the video but right when I was setting up my camera to make the house tour video my dream stopped and I woke up :(

    Mr Lennox. I had 2 really vivid dreams last night which is highly unusual for me. one was terrible but the one I’m going to explaine to you was fairly good. I do not remember the front of the house but I was originally suppose to move into a one bedroom apartment. It turned out to be a two story about 5 bedroom house. The bak yard was my 18 month old sons play room. No significant other (in life or in dream) I remember my son was able to talk and he told me he was going to need more clothes. Each room was bright and had a really good view of my town. And the backyard outside was where I set up my sons toys and playroom. I am really unsure about what this could mean.

    I am a wife and mother of 4 children under 10. I have a dream every so often that my family is in a house (in my dream it’s our home) it is very tall and narrow. It is very old and has many floors (say 3 or 4). The top floors (I rarely see a staircase but more a hole to go to them) are haunted. During the day in the dream we avoid the higher floors and are fine but at night we feel the ghosts will come down and scare us- pull our sheets off, slam doors, scare us. It feels very real.
    Can you interpret this?

    Years ago, I had a dream that my Oakley home was located right next to a small stadium where Eric Clapton was performing. Not many people were there to hear his concert. In the middle of a song, he stopped performing, because it bothered him that there was a little pile of sand on my porch. I brushed it away for him, so that he could continue playing. Once I made that gesture, it was understood, in my dream, that we were now equals. After the concert, he came to my door and walked through my house with me, where I showed him the first floor. He had told me that he also owned a home exactly like my Oakley house, except it was the mirrored opposite. Jim was busy working on something inside and paid no mind to us. When we came out the front door, we found a large circular pool of water, very turbulent, about thirty feet across with a twenty foot leap. Once you dove in there was no way out, no ladders. I said to him, “Let’s jump. Come on, let’s do it!”

    Dear Mr Lennox, I have this dream where I’m in a room. My bedroom and this room constantly gets bigger and bigger and I get smaller and smaller within that room up until the point where I’m just a tiny little speck. This dream has been a constant one since I was about 10 it seems more like a nightmare to me. What does it mean

    i had a dream of walking along a street lined with beautiful houses. I entered one of them. I then saw my self in the living room of the house looking at how beautiful it was decorated with new shiny victorian styled furniture. There was a huge window looking out at a beautiful lawn. In the dream is was sooo in awe at how beautiful the room was. I think in this dream i thought this was my sisters house and if only i can have mine like this.

    Hello Dr.

    I have been having the same recurring dream about a house I grew up in for a while now. The weird thing is sometimes, the house is in the dream, but only in the background. Like, it’s not the focal point of the dream. There is other times when the house is the focal point, but the inside of the house changes. I can’t think of one dream, where the house is laid out exactly how the house was really constructed. There are various people in the dreams. All of them I know. All of them from various points in my life. Sometimes it’s just me in the dream. I’m just trying to make sense of it all. Thank you in advance.

    I dreamt that I moved into a beautiful mansion that was just built and decorated. There was a male and female that I didn’t know sitting in the kitchen and it appeared they were surprised or not too thrilled to see me.
    There was 2 older boys that belonged to the man I moved in with also in the house but they were upstairs in their section. The room I was in was at the front of the house and the man I moved in with was spying on some other activities that was going on across the street. In my dream there was an aunt of mine that I don’t speak to that came to see the man I was with. She then came to the room scolding me for being with the man because she didn’t think it was an appropriate time after his wife died… I told her to mind her own business.
    The man I moved in with had a wife that died. Our room had a back door that when opened in could see a river that ran behind the house and there was also a huge plum tree and lots of banana tree with ripe bananas. I was told no one ate from the fruit trees as when they did so they would make the spirit of the dead wife upset.
    I decided to pick some bananas to eat… while eating the bananas and sitting on the from porche I saw it flashlight coming from the room, the door opened and out came the deceased wife as a spirit in human form. She told me that she was happy that I made her husband happy. She asked me a few questions to which I replied and it seemed she was happy and impressed and she inturn told me I was going great places in life.
    She then said she had a vial that she could give me that would help me along the way but she’d need something from me in return. I asked her what she wanted and she said she wanted me to pick plums from the tree and make her a jar of her favorite jam. I asked her why since she was dead and she responded “to whom help is needed help is also requested”
    She handed me the vial and said she’d poor the elixir in it when I deliver her jam.
    I was scared and thought what if she poisoned me, I didn’t trust her. MY aunt that was there scolding me before was encouraging me to do it and I didn’t trust her either.
    I then gave her the vial and told her since she wanted me to do it so bad how about she do it for herself and she was hesitant and her countenance fell.

    Had a dream that I moved into a 2 story house, huge, beautiful and fully equipped with furniture and appliances. I was so excited, it felt so, so real. My two sons helped me and my husband to move in. They also moved in with us. And that’s all.
