I wrote the following sentence in Live Mocha:
  • "The woman is opening the door to her home."
Some people made the following corrections!
  • "The woman is opening the door to her house."
The is correct "Home" or "House"???

I will like to know which preposition is more appropriate for this part:
  • ...the door TO/AT/OF her home.

Jedson,

I guess all your questions can be solved in the following topics:
home-x-house-t3136.html
in-my-house-x-at-my-house-t10237.html
in-or-at-house-t4603.html

Always use the search box, right? ;)

as for the preposition question, I think 'to' implies movement in some direction
-road to nowhere
-door to my house
-key to success

and generally 'of' implies ownership, possession, or place of origin
-door of my house = house door

So, 'to' and 'of' both work.
She opened the door of her house.
She opened the door to her house.
