Am I mistaken or is there quite a bit of difference between the way houses are constructed in this country and the way they are built in Europe? On the several trips I've made to Europe (England, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Poland, Czechoslovakia) I've always been impressed by solidity and sensibility of residential construction there, whether single or multiple family. A lot of older homes built of brick, stone, stucco, straw, mortar, timbers, etc. Is that still the case or are homes being built now constructed of lighter weight materials?
