House is often used where I believe colonials would use "home". It can encompass flats/apartments and so on, depending on context. In this context it means all the places people might live.

"Home", also often referred to by the term 'household'. Of course both your home and your household can be under a bridge.

Under that connotation, the question "s there even room for a million houses in the UK?" makes no sense. Simply converting a detached residence from single occupancy to dual occupancy would double the number of "houses" with no change in the amount of room taken.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
