What is the correct way to model a Duplex or Townhome?

A duplex is treated as single family, as is a townhome or townhouse.  Because the duct leakage requirements for these dwelling units are different from multi-family, they must show compliance based upon each dwelling unit and a model for each unit must be developed, with separate reports.

However, in the case of a townhome that has more than 3 stories, this will fall under the Highrise Residential Standards and a Nonresidential calculation must be run.  In this case a single model can be developed for all of the townhomes.
