Owning our own plot and that brick and glass home is so vital to our feeling of belonging and […]» Read more

The way our homes are constructed has changed dramatically over the years – in fact the earliest of mankind huddled together in caves and under trees. No one would have thought back then, thousands of years, that they’d ever be living in such comfort as we do now.

I have been looking at my house lately – not that I’m completely unfamiliar with it of course. But after nearly twenty years, it’s beginning to show a little justified aging. I’ve not actually considered the design concept of the lovely comfortable family exec home. It still looks very nice, airy & attractive. My wonderment and anxiety concerns the actual […]» Read more

It is incredible how old some of our country’s prettiest country buildings really are. Thinkng of the thatched cottages we fondly remember […]» Read more
I was watching a programme online about construction and home development in Canada the other week. They have a completely different lifestyle over there and amazing to think that their entire population is only just over half of Great Britain’s. There can’t be a feeling overcrowding there, for sure. I am interested in the country having watched quite a few […]» Read more
I’ve just spent a wonderful few weeks in the States with family. I did a great deal of getting myself to various museums and galleries with the help of a certain taxi company and when I wasn’t engaged in such culterally pleasing pursuits, I lazed around in my flat watching some of the endless round of home and property based […]» Read more
