Watching a UK TV detective show the other day it struck me that you could instantly tell where it was set from the style of the ordinary houses alone. Example, the great British 3-bed semi-detached which Ive only ever seen there. The style varies slightly depending on when they were built but the basic floor plans are the same. My granny lived in one like this, built just before WW2.
From the 1960s. Note the garage as people had cars by then.
This would be a typical floor plan (excluding conservatory). Older homes have a dividing wall between the living and dining room which people often knock through as separate dining rooms become less useful with modern lifestyles. We have one and use it twice a year tops. We live/eat/cook in one big room these days.
Meanwhile in Australia, here's a typical "California" bungalow, common in most city suburbs. Most were built between the wars and have some great Art Deco interior features.
Do you think there's a "typical" style of home in your part of the world? (Trailerparks included)
