that was not my intention, Pete!!
and Botto, the reference to me as the typical American house is the kind of house I saw when I went to the USA... So, the houses of Pittsburgh, PA and Florida :wink:
I believe in big cities you can find houses with fences, but in Florida and Pittsburgh it was not common. Here in Brazil at least 90% of the houses all over the country have fences
About the availability of building materials, I disagree a little bit with you, Pete
whe have A LOT of wood in Brazil (remember the Amazon?? thatīs just a part of it!), but still we donīt build houses with wood
why?? because of our culture... we donīt feel that wood houses are "solid", you know?
maybe a house made of wood would be even cheaper than a similar house built with concrete
but no one would buy it!!! :roll:
