I used to live in a house right on the street right beside my neighbors with about 6ft between us on each side. What a sucky way to build a house. The back yard and sides of the house were useless since we were all on top of each other (for me since I need to park stuff) and the back yard was larger but you couldn't get anything back there.

I originally thought about building a house but way over my head and abilities right now, but yes if I did it I would aim for a rectangular or square lot, push the house to one side, and have a ton of usable space. Coincidentally thats how these people did. The house is pushed to the right near the neighbor about 5ft off their fence with a lot of half an acre for use for other activities.
