When was your house built?

Recommended Posts

I've heard two different years for mine, 1989 and 1992. I think the realtor said 1992, but I've heard my parents say 1989 before.

I'm pretty sure it's 1992 though.

The house I live in was started in 1929, building finished in 1935 (it's stone masonry).

Neat! Is it nice?

The house I used to live in (and grew up in for the first 11 years of my life) was built in 1937, so I love old houses. Something to do with the fact I grew up in one :3

Hmm I think sometime in the 1970s but I don't remember the date exactly :huh:

There's a photo showing that the house was at least erected at least a year before I was born, if not earlier.

I wanna say it was built in the 80's since I know my dad has lived in my grandma's house growing up and has owned this house for a long while. Either the 80's or 70's, that's my guess.

1999, same as the year of my birth, it is also engraved into some of the stone work on the side~

The place that I live in was built in 1981. I'm a little surprised my town existed then because it's so small.

The house I lived in when I was little was built in 1977. The one I grew up in was built in 1998.

My current apartment was built in 2014.

1920. Big difference from where i lived prior: my parents custom built house from 2001.

One thing I love about this old house is the steam heat system. When it fires right it's so effective. Too bad we dont have modern insulation or we'd be downright toasty all winter.

2013. It was built to be the previous owners "dream house" before he sadly passed away. 

It's built in the aesthetic of an old-timey homestead though.

The house that I live in at home was built in the early 1960s. I can tell this, because the plaster for the walls has hair mixed in, and they used hair as a binder for plaster back in in the 60s and 70s.

My Dorm that I live in (Washington Hall on the Campus of Western Illinois University) was built in the early 60s, and refurbished in 2013.

My house was built in 1994. My dorm is in a building that is about 50 years old if I recall correctly.

loving this topic as I work in a Building Survey company which specializes in Historic and Listed buildings ^_^ 

THIS IS MY JOB!!!!!!

My current house is late Victorian- early 20th Century, small red brick terrace town house. 

My old house is much grander, its a mid C19th/Victorian, three storey red brick semi detached town house, with a Coach house/stable in the back originally leading onto the road behind. Before me moved in, it was owned by my school at the time - look it up (Taunton School), C18th private day and boarding school. 

My parents' current house is an C18th (maybe even C17th) Converted Coach house, with an annexe building that housed the original water pump and well. If you took up the floor boards and cracked the concrete underneath, you will find a massive deep ex-well shaft. Their house is the Coach house and stables to the big manor house next door (converted split into flats). Its all stone and was converted into 3 flats, so its kinda upside down with no interior stairs. 

The best house we lived in was our old, old house. An early C18th Manor estate, with the original stables and barns. You can look it up, it's called Bradford Court (Somerset). since we left, its been renovated at least 3 times, with the pool in-filled, the tennis courts demolished, the barns and stables converted and divided off the grounds and a ghastly glass modern box house built in the former front grounds by the driveway.  I wish I was old enough to have appreciated that house when we lived there. I do so miss what it was. The gardens were stunning. 

Living in the UK is just always full of history - I live in the South West, where there are several thousand listed properties, including castles and churches, its not a very modernised part of the country and my Dad fights to protect and preserve these buildings! 80% of the country do not appreciate the old houses they live or work in. But Im so glad I now work in this business. Theres history locked in every nail, board and stone!

This building were built in the 1960's somewhere. My apartment is around 20-30 years? Still a pretty good living area though.

1958, build by an italian immigrant coming from Sicilian, I build it himself and did a great job.
A brave man if you ask me.

My house is fairly new, I'd say it's roughly about 5 or 6 years old, must've been built sometime in 2011/2012. We rent it, though.
