OpenStudio for single family homes

I'm interested in using OpenStudio to model a single family home, but all of the resources, building types, templates, components, etc. seem to be for larger commercial buildings.

I'm curious if anyone has had experience using OpenStudio to model smaller buildings and what your work flow was for getting that set up. Did you make everything from scratch? Did you just use the closes fit from the the available building types? Are there resources out there that I'm just not finding?
