such as a house
home, or room(s) within a larger structure
that provides a space for occupants making up a single household
to live and eat. For a room or apartment to be defined as a housing unit, it must be distinctly separated from other living spaces within the building
. It must be directly accessible from an outer door or through an interior door in a shared hallway rather than by walking through another household's living space. Facilities with shared dining areas are typically excluded from this definition.
