The home range is particular to the type of residence and the type of urban, suburban or rural environment inhabited. This paper will present home range from the perspective of a typical early 20th century house from a mid-sized city in the Midwestern US. A territorial gradient that was developed based on that setting will be presented and discussed. That perspective will then be challenged by examining other environments that represent other types of US as well as European settings. The comparison will give rise to a discussion of such issues as autonomy and control; risk and identity; intimate, private and public realms; the impact of spatial dimensions; as well as responding to and making environments.
