The term 'jokcosto' is a metonym composed of the words for 'side' and 'house'. It is not a kind of house, however, but a kind of person - the house is conflated with the person. It is generally not used as a verb. The derived form 'jokcostostep' is a word for 'neighborhood', and the modifier form 'jokcostos' means 'neighborly' and just as in English has good, friendly connotations.
