Very true, but even a house or cottage inside a working farmyard would still be on a landuse mapped as a farmyard. The building may no longer be =shed or farm_auxiliary, but unless the activity of the farm ceases (and becomes merely a residential living area or a commercial resort), I think it would still be on a landuse=farmyard. 

Not many people want to stay in the mud and bamboo walled house with a collapsed roof and broken windows next to the garbage burn pile here in Japan. The tiny private farmyards I am mapping have their charms, but they are not picture postcard material.
