Your Home's History

Discovering the history of a house - who lived in it and when it was built - can be a challenging and rewarding experience. It can also be very useful. Knowing its history, and that of its surroundings, can tell you what's important about it - its significance. It can also tell you how your house was constructed, and if there were later additions or alterations. This sort of information can help when you're thinking about making changes, or tackling the building's energy efficiency.
