The housenumber and street would be tagged on the "building:part=house"

Is this housrnumber belonging to the terrace or is it belonging to the street? If it belongs to the terrace, I think even with this tagging software wouldnt recognise this.

In that case, this is the tagging O use (its not that good however):

addr:place=Orchard Gardens
addr2:street=Green Lane

I use addr2:street (this is accepted tagging, by the way) to indicate that the street is a seperate address.

This isnt ideal, of course

And then enclosed within "building=terrace, name=Orchard Cottages". Is the tag building:part=house enough to indicate that the address is "2, Orchard Cottages, Green Lane" and not "2, Green Lane"?
