Outbuildings that are not dwelling-houses

Can a physically separate outbuilding be ‘part of’ the main house? It is clearly not a physical part of that house; but the courts have approached the problem by asking: ‘Is this part of the dwelling-house which is the owner’s residence?’, or, in effect, ‘Is this part of the residence?’

If ‘residence’ is equated, as it has been in the decided cases, with ‘what the owner occupies as his home and the buildings which serve that occupation’ the difficulty begins to disappear.
