No matter where you are in the world, there are very few things quite as important as having a roof over your head when you come home at the end of the day. This has been the case for thousands of years, and it will continue to be so long into the future.
At Rubberbond, we know how important it is for a homeowner to have the exact style they want for their house and we have to take into account the reasons behind this. So this got us thinking about all sorts of different homes around the world, and why they are designed the way they are. Is it all about practicality? The environment they’re in? Aesthetics?
Here we take a look at 21 different types of house that you’ll have been able to find around the world over the years, and what factors contributed to their design. From the Mail Order Sears Catalogue Homes, to the moveable Chattel Houses of Barbados, to the iconic image of the Inuit’s Igloo – it takes all sorts!
