An understanding of the times
In house building terms, the early 1990's were a following on from the 1980's, and in the first few years of this decade at least nothing much changed. The people with 'negative equity' in their property saw light at the end of the tunnel as interest rates dropped, property prices rose, the economy recovered from the recession, and a feel good factor was pretty much in place, as was more real disposable income. From the middle to the end of this decade stylish new property estates seemed to be springing up on any and every bare patch around, and the properties on them were getting bigger, and more prestigious looking.
It would have been so easy to show you lots of impressive showroom type photos of new double glazing installations in this section, but I rarely do things the easy way! Instead I have chosen to show you a selection of photos taken by me whilst 'out and about' to illustrate the main house building styles of the last 100 odd years, and the windows and doors that go with them.
