Bungalow

Essentially, a bungalow is a one-story building that can be found on its own (totally detached), next to another bungalow (semi detached), or in a row (terraced). Although some bungalows currently come in relatively large sizes, some individuals love bungalows possibly because of its diminutive size. Additionally, it frequently costs less than a duplex.

Terraced homes are those that are constructed in a continuous row using a common design. To put it simply, a row of houses is formed by a pair of terraced homes that are separated by a single wall on either side. Bungalows and duplexes both include terraces, although terraced duplexes are more typical in this region of the world.
