Oldest, newest home you've lived in? « on: August 04, 2019, 11:55:57 PM » Author: ace100w120v
The historic preservation topic made me think of this:

Me:

Newest: Depends.  Part of my current home was built in 2000, but newest-start was 1988. 

Oldest: 1941.  Every room was finished to a different decade decor wise.  Bull nose orange peel drywall in some rooms, wood paneling and shag carpet in others.

My oldest house I've been in is 120 years old.

I grew up in it.

The other house which is my parents house is 1950.

I live in a house from 1943! It was constructed when the sourth part of Santiago are still in countryside.

At the first years the house was lighted by candles and by incandescent later. Would've been interesting to keep the incandescent bulbs. My house still have some lead tubes, fabric insulated wires and ceramic cable insulators, and still keek dome switches.

1891 and rented one built in 1851 to buy in Alabama near a military school. Had photos of when the Union Army captured it with one photo of the General on the front porch surrounded by his troops and another photo of when the Confederates re-captured it with the Confederate General and his men around him. House would not pass inspection and the main reason that it was built on rocks and cedar logs to support the frame. I went to the dirt "cellar" underneath the house and wondered how many from the civil war had been on the same spot that I was in. The front door was about three inches of thick oak wood with a brass door knob and large key lock.
It was like going back in time. I think now that I should have bought it anyway.

in may and october of 2018 and may of 2019 I stayed at a house of the 19th century in Valparaíso, specifically on the Artillery Hill. Almost all the anti-water ampoules were changed to led, cfl or halogen, but still I could see an old fluorescent luminaire, calculated from the 60s or 50s.

My apartment house i live in was build in around 1957 and is a classic Swedish post-war suburban type area. It's actually listed as a part of our historical heritage because it is so classic!

I absolutely love the architecture in some of the classic "gingerbead" structures and the construction of the post war as well.
