You just cannot imagine the difference in the houses between our little country and the estates in Texas. I have relatives who live there and their small family house is the size of two of our large detached executive homes. They don’t appear to go in for rows of terraced houses, or semi detached, for that matter. I have ony ever seen mansion house blocks of apartments or normal utilitarian apartment blocks themselves. They have such a huge population to house that in most inner cities, you can only ever buy an apartment or a house further out of the city. Getting the busy streets clear to be able to drop building materials off is a major nightmare over there too. They don’t go in for dropped curbs or easily negotiable walkways for unloading any cargo. It is so much easier over here where we have driveways that can accept cars and vans!
