No because, as it is usually defined, the word "house" has a meaning and so
there is contrast between those two things.  But if the word "house" is
redefined in such a way that I have a house, and a dog has a house, and a
bacteria has a house, and an atom has a house, and a quark has a house,
then the word no longer has any meaning and the world would not be one bit
different if nobody had a "house".  And if everything has a soul then
effectively nothing has a soul.
