1. I wonder if the first house pictured was constructed by a brick mason for himself. Sometimes, you find houses built by tradesmen for themselves which have a much higher level of detail than would normally be found in such a small house. One of my great-grandfathers was a cabinetmaker; his house was not large, but it had the built-in cabinetry of the largest mansion. After all, why not have the best for your own house if you have the skills to do so?
