‘House’ and ‘home’ are interchangeable usually, but in some sentences one sounds more natural than the other. When you are speaking of the actual building where you live, usually people say ‘house’. Most times when someone is speaking about where they live in a warm and familiar way, they use ‘home’, for example, the common English phrase: “Home is where the heart is”.

Synonyms of "House" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between I moved to a new house and I have moved to a new house ?
A: Both previous responses are incorrect. The difference is between using the simple past: "I moved" and the present perfect: "I have moved"

The simple past is for events that happen in a finished time period (yesterday, last week, last year, 2009 etcetera)

The present perfect is used for past events which have a connection to the present in some way (time expressions include today, this week, this year etc), especially for very recent actions.

Compare:

I moved to a new house in 1999.

and

The address you have is no longer correct, I have moved to a new house. (recent)
Q: What is the difference between "Can I come to your house?" and "Can I go to your house?" ?
A: Usually, "to come" means "to move towards me/the speaker." However, it can also have the connotation (implied meaning) of "to move towards something familiar to me/the speaker."

So, "Can I come to your house?" sounds more friendly and comfortable than "Can I go to your house?"

"Can I go to your house?" implies you have some kind of business to do there not involving your friend, which might sound strange.
Q: What is the difference between What a lovely house! and What a beautiful house! ?
A: Similar meanings, but:

"Beautiful" is more superficial and has more to do with the visual aesthetics (e.g. clean, nice looking decor, nice colors, nice furniture, etc.).

"Lovely" has a deeper, emotional meaning. It's like saying "this is a good home to live in" or "this feels like a proper home", "this home has character" (it's not just plain and simple, it has a unique style or special quality), or "I can see that you have put a lot of work and effort into this home". It can also sometimes be used superficially (like "beautiful").
Q: What is the difference between Her house was neat. and Her house was spick-and-span. and Her house was beautiful. and Her house was clean. ?
A: "Her house was neat" means it was organized
"Her house was spick-and-span" I assume that means her house was extremely clean
"Her house was beautiful" means it looked beautiful (really pretty) so this could be referring to the way it was decorated
"Her house was clean" means that there was no dirt and everything was put away (for example, there was no dirty laundry on the floor, or toys on the floor)
Q: What is the difference between The house is made of steel and glass and The house is consisted of steel and glass ?
A: The first sentence sounds right.

The second would be better if you said 'The construction of the house consists of glass and steel'.
