"Home" is espanol?
Or translate "A house is not a home"
No help from duolingo or books

Una casa no es un hogar.

I agree. You will often see prayers to La Virgin Guadalupe, Bendice este hogar; Bless this home, not Bendice esta casa. Casa is house, hogar refers to home.
Querencia, is sometimes translated to Home Sweet Home, but more often as lair.
Domicillio also refers to home, but in the context mentioned above, hogar seems the most appropriate. Context can be everything in translation...

New one for me. What's your cuate's background? Any chance you could ask him where it comes from?

I haven't heard "canton"either, "chan" is mentioned at the bottom of this article. my buddy is born and raised in rosarito....
