Another look at housing evoution

With its front porch intact and colourful landscaping, this is a lovely heritage home.
When built many decades ago, the small cottage homes that dot London provided relatively inexpensive housing. This is not always the case today. Many still present a simple but elegant face to the street but inside they have been upgraded, modernized, and rear additions have been added, expanding the homes to sizes unimagined by the original builders and occupants. It is not uncommon to find these homes have had multiple additions over the intervening years.

This once-small-home appears to have had two rear additions expanding it size.

The houses that have those additions like that in the second photo, we call bungalows here. I love looking at architecture!
