When usual people
build a house
, they usually don't build it to suit their own need
Instead, it has to do with their spouse and children or for other family members and their household.
Sometimes it is built to suit friends and associates or to please a lord or teacher.
Even for their stuff, their cattle, or horses.
I have built for myself, as I am.
If you wonder why, well, the world today goes its way
and I go mine.
