This tag is a less-detailed option to define the outline of a linear row of residential dwellings which form a [W] terrace. Each of the dwellings normally has its own entrance. These are known as "rowhouse" or "townhouse" in North American English.

A more detailed and recommended alternative is to map each dwelling separately using building=house, but keeping at least two nodes in common for adjoining houses.

This tag is not meant to be used for a platform that extends outwards from a building.

How to map

Draw a single area area along the outline of the whole terrace. Optionally add entrance=* for each entrance.
