дім vs. будинок?
Hello everyone, I'd like to know the difference between дім and будинок? Дякую
If you say "це мій дім" I would probably understand this as "this is the place I live in." If you say "це мій будинок" I would probably understand this as "I own this building/house (and work/live in it)."
"Дім" usually means a place where people live, while "будинок" usually just describes a kind of construction. "Дім" is also more informal, while "будинок" is more formal and is more likely to be used in different documents.
дім means house and будинок means building/house, but if you say "this is my building", будинок can mean house. It all depends on how you будинок in a sentence
дім is "home", будинок is "building"
Colloquially дім maybe used with a meaning "building"
