[W] Semi-detached houses are the commonest type of house in the United Kingdom, but are also found throughout the world. They consist of a pair of houses sharing a common wall (the party wall) and are usually have an identical layout which is a mirror of the other half. Semis can vary in size from small houses built for social housing (2 bedroom, 1 living room) to vast Victorian villas with 6 or more bedrooms spread over 3 or more floors.

In Britain semis usually have 2 floors, but semi-detached bungalows are common in some areas. It is not clear whether the semi tag or building=bungalow should be preferred in this case: indeed, perhaps building=bungalow_semi may be a suitable alternative.

Examples

Mendips, Liverpool
