Not really, ;)<quoted text>thats nasty having a snake shit in your house
Our home was built in 1903.
Stone foundation, Cement floor, drain, coal furnace, coal bin w/chute.
Basements in those days were work areas. There was always coal dust and ash to deal with in the winter. Stationary tubs next to ringer washer with outlets to flush the floor.
We bathed our dogs here.
Unlike the 'modern' homes of today - that fall apart in the wind, and you can put your hand through the wall board - everything is pre-fab on a concrete block foundation...
These homes were built to last a lifetime and they do!
Skilled carpenters, plasterers, stone makers, constructed these homes. They were craftsmen.
Now homes are assembled much like childhood building blocks.
We don't need these skills any longer.
We want our homes built in 30 days or less, All glitz No substance.
Modern Homes have become as disposable as automobiles.
