3 phase is three phases....live 1, live2, live 3. each phase has 230V running down it and each house will recieced one of them and a neutral. I think the houses might be wired evenly so that
number 1 will get a brown phase (230V)
number 3 will get a black phase (230V)
number 5 will get a grey phase (230V)

and back to brown for number 7.Basically its just a way of spreading the load/demand.

You must be on a different phase to the houses either side to you.
