Question about English (US)

What is the difference between modest and moderate ?Feel free to just provide example sentences.

for example,
I live in a modest house.
I live in a moderate house.

in the frist one ,I can see its writer want to say just that his house is not big.he doesn't say about how small it is.

in the second one,I can see its writer want to say not just that his house is not big but that his house isn't that small.he says about both how big and small it is.

is this the different between "modest" and "moderate",in this situation?
