Let`s commence a new thread. I have got plenty of photos of Polish houses, apartments, rooms.
For a start, three newly built buildings. Poles like their houses solid and durable so the standard material are bricks and hollow blocks. As for roofs, there are two kinds: economical investors use cheaper steel sheets, while well-off owners choose more expensive ceramic tiles which look much better.
The rarest are houses made of wood. They appear very seldom in and around big cities, even in the countryside, but are still popular iin the Highlands area in southern Poland where wood is available.
Villages in Poland still host such old wooden constructions. They make about l 10%, at least in southern Poland which used to be the poorest rural region before the war. The poverty hasn`t been overcome yet by some people.
After 1989 they started building such houses. This one was built in early 1990 and I liked it a lot. So different....
Yes, it has a little "castle" theme going on there...
Exactly. I have always wondered - why didn`t communist authorities allow such architecture? I intentionally used the expression allowed instead of supported because it was forced on people by socialist architects. They didn`t let people go too extravagant with their houses, all had to be built according to one design - a dull square block with a flat roof. Today these houses spoil the landscape all over Poland.
Poland could look so different today.
Another reason why I hate communism. F...k uniformity!!!
Wait until the new family moves in after Jan. 20th. and hangs that tire from the tree, and put the old car on the lawn, and has his chickens eating on the front lawn. He may even grow some grass, out back, if you know what I mean.
