This study is based on twenty semi-structured interviews centered on moving, i.e. its aim is the understanding of a specific experience of transition and relocation. It's outcome is a description of the various facets of three sequences, which are artificially separated to make this presentation more systematic. One sequence, during which the dweller still resides in his old home, draws his qualities from his or her capacity to project his actions into a new place, and from the conditions under which this capacity can be exerted. The other is an unstable state, made of indecision and yet of many decisions. The dweller is confronted with a sudden chaos, and he experiences the choices to be made as many opportunities to question the dimensions of his identity and of the material extensions of his/her self. Lastly, another sequence corresponds to the necessity to multiply the beneficial actions which lead to the mastering of the new house. It is marked by purification and celebration practices and by the adaptation of the body to the physical constraints of the place.
