What is it called when you live above a shop?

Maisonettes are commonly positioned over businesses, garages, or other maisonettes, thus they might be thought of as "houses on stilts." These can be single-story structures with maisonette flats, but more typically they are two-story buildings with either rental apartments or commercial space in the lower floor and garage spaces up under the roof. There are also larger versions of this type of building, sometimes called "four-flats".

The term "maisonette" was originally used to describe certain types of houses built in France before the 19th century. These were one-and-a-half story structures with small balconies that projected off each room. They were often made of wood and had flat roofs covered in clay or gravel. In English-speaking countries, these became known as "casements" (or "casseries").

So, yes, you can say that people who live in maisonettes are "living above a store." Or a restaurant. Or an office building!

There are actually several different names for these kinds of buildings depending on where in the world you are. In French, they are called "maisons en cours" (which means "under construction").

They date from the early 20th century to late 1940s.

Thus, a row of trees is a line of trees standing back-to-back. The phrase "a row of boats" could apply to a cluster of boats docked at a marina or it could refer to a string of boats pulled by a single driver racing down the road.

Large house may be used to describe any house that is very big. However, it usually refers to a house that is very large compared to other houses or buildings of its type or size. For example, a large house could be said to be three stories high or more. This would be true even if all the other houses in the neighborhood were one story tall.

That's because large houses tend to hold a lot of stuff that needs to be kept safe-from heaters to lawnmowers to bicycles to boats. They also often have workbenches, storage cabinets, and other amenities that require a large area underneath them.

In conclusion, a large house is any house that is big enough to fit all your junk.

What is a townhouse called in London?

In British use, the word townhouse historically referred to a member of the aristocracy or gentry's town or city abode, in reality, usually in London, as opposed to their country seat, which was known as a country house or, informally, for the bigger ones, a stately mansion. Today, the term is used for any large private residence in a central location.

The word is derived from the French word "bourse", which in turn comes from the Latin word "burgus" meaning "city wall". The English word "burb" also derives from this source.

The townhouse is so called because it was normally located in a town or city centre where there were other large houses belonging to other members of the aristocracy or gentry. It was often but not always part of a group of townhouses occupied by different people, with shared service facilities such as kitchens and shops. These were often owned by a business entity known as a "townhouse company".

The largest residential building in most cities around the world is generally considered to be a townhouse, especially if it is still inhabited by one family. They can measure up to five or six floors high with room sizes ranging from a few hundred square feet (25 sq m) up to several thousand square feet (100 sq m or more).

What do you call the area outside your front door?

A foyer in a home is often a short space behind a front entrance that divides a house's major rooms from the outside. It usually contains a staircase and an elevator, if available. A foyer can also be called a vestibule or entryway.

The foyer is used to introduce visitors to the home's owner and hostess. It should be a place where guests feel welcome and at ease. A casual atmosphere is best; therefore, no suits or dresses are required of visitors. However, since most hosts would prefer not to see their homes dressed up for guests, we recommend following this rule of thumb: If you wouldn't wear it yourself, don't put it on display for others to see.

The size of the foyer will vary depending on the size of the house and how much furniture it contains. In small houses, the foyer may be just large enough for one or two people to stand in comfortably, while larger ones may allow for more room for receiving guests or storage.

Many foyers contain a mirror so that visitors know how to proceed after they have been greeted. If there is no one around to greet them, many people think that they should send up a flag or something similar to indicate that they are waiting to be invited in.
