At first they don't go inside, but later it becomes a place for the pigs to live and work. Some animals remember that there was once a commandment to not sleep in beds, as the pigs are doing, but they say the commandment refers only to beds with sheets.

Eventually the pigs used the house essentially as the humans did. At first, they are cautious about going into the house but little by little they make use of more and more of the accoutrements of the farmer’s life. At first there is a commandment prohibiting sleeping in beds, but overnight, that is changed to “beds with sheets.” By the end of the book, there is very little difference between the pigs and the humans.
