Tall Houses

tall houses in Scarborough

Albert Street

Tall houses on Albert Street in Scarborough. I mostly liked the shadows and the tallness of the houses. 3 storeys is good. I wonder why they were so tall… And 3 storeys on a hill seems a bit extravagant. But yeah, the shadows.

Tall houses and getting-smaller houses

Most houses in the UK are two-storeys high but these are 3. The average height of a house in the UK varies between 22 and 25 feet. So not that tall. Also in the UK we have some of the smallest houses in Europe.. Our newbuilds ARE the smallest in Europe. I believe we are the only european country not to have minimum-space standards for the homes we live in. We used to, but Thatcher got rid of them in 1980. And they’ve been shrinking ever since.
