  • I live in one in a set of 2 pairs in Thimbleby, Lincolnshire. The two on either end are housing association, and have been clad but have almost original internal layout. My house is clad in plastic, but mimics the wooden cladding. Apart from the wall between the dining room and lounge being removed, the layout is the same. The coal room is now the boiler room, and the wash room is fitted out as a kitchen. The remaining house is pretty much original, but has been left empty for many years, and is rotting away.

  • Hi, I am wondering about prefab houses on Hook Lane in Enfield, London, are they Swedish houses or BISF?
    Best wishes, Vesna

  • There is a street with 6 x type A and 6 x type D Swedish houses in Brookland Kent TN29 9RG
    1 type A still has original cladding on view, the rest have secondary plastic cladding
    All type D have secondary cladding (4 plastic, 2 horizontal wooden)
    We live in one of the wooden clad type D – Love its light and airy spacious feel. No major problems that we have encountered over last 10 years of ownership – and all are increasing in value at a comparable rate as the brick built houses on the street.

  • 4 Swedish houses were planned in 1949 for
    Mount Pleasant, Wotton under Edge, Gloucestershire, and need to be put on your map. GL12 7 I think they will have been erected by 1950
    They are still there.
