A single-family home is one that is not attached to another dwelling. An apartment or duplex for example are NOT single-family homes. It doesn't matter how many people, or how many families, may be living in the residence. A single-family home generally references a "stick built" home or one that is built upon a foundation as opposed to a mobile or manufactured home.
