The Torah talks about removing idol worship objects. Are we then just talking about statues? What about books, newspapers, pictures, paintings , maybe your house is designed in a form that goes back to a form of idol worship. How far does this go, what to Include and what to Exclude?
books, newspapers, pictures, paintings
maybe your house is designed in a form that goes back to a form of idol worship
If it is clear that the house is not similar to an idole, no problem. If the house is into a statue who is used as worship, there is a great problem. If the house has a form of cross (horizontally or vertically) not problem, this form is not for worship and is not royalty of idolatry.
There is a prohibition to make a house which is an exact reproduction of the Beth Hamikdash, see SA YD 141, 8.
If the house was a church, but the people who was making worship inside leaved it, it is allowed too.
In SA YD 245, 3 A house or a stone of the house which was itself an object of worship are prohibited. A land itself may be prohibited in some conditions.
But these prohibitions concern cases very rare nowadays, almost in occidental world.
