It’s Just Antique Unique!

Older Homes
are neat antique.

Older homes
are better built.

History echos
from the past.

And even an
occasional Ghost.

What a Blast!

They moan as darkness settles in, Some say it’s pipes and floorboards, Settling as they cool. But we all know the…

the house is alive!

Now the attic is something entirely weird!

      1. It goes right down to the timber. Older houses were often made with old growth timber which had been allowed to mature slowly. The wood was then properly dried, a time consuming process, but a process that creates stable and straight timber. Timber companies today have created hybrid tree species which grow quickly, but lack the stability of slower growing trees. The wood is then rushed through a drying process and delivered to the homesite with far to much water still in the cellular structure. Once the wood is placed in the walls it will dry out in an uncontrolled fashion, warping and twisting as it does so. Do I no what I’m talking about, or am I really good at BS or some combination of both? That’s a very good question.
