watashi no ie


Explanation:
The Japanese language is full of synonyms. Do not get confused by the long list of terms meaning "house" - there are differences and thus these terms are not interchangeable. For example, "yashiki" is a "mansion" or "residence", while "teitaku" also describes a "fine house", and although "sumika" or "sumai" means "one's house", "address" or "abode", it is rather formal. "hausu" is just the Japanese rendition of the English "house", which is not commonly used. "uchi", on the other hand, is not so much "house" in the sense of an actual building, but rather "home" as a concept, if you like.
Therefor I think that "ie" is the best choice when describing your house in a conversation or in a letter.
