It may be a single-story residence, duplex, mobile home, flat or mid-range home, bungalow. It may be a home that has been vacant for quite some time or one that is undergoing major construction. It is normally a fully enclosed or semi-enclosed room and will have both exterior and interior elements to it. A home is classified as such if it meets the following criteria: it has a fixed physical structure (a house, flat, wall building or any other structure that has a fixed structure) and a fixed physical location (a place where there is no longer any need to move or go home). Home includes residential buildings like homes, farm houses, cottages, holiday homes, studio apartments, row homes and manufactured homes.
