Thanks Barbie..glad you like them......I agree with you about living in one ..would do me fine......there was also a Little Anderson shelter in the back that had been turned into an out house and a lovely garden that was set out to grow veggies as they would have done

Here is a bit of history about Prefab houses....


   There was a housing shortage after the Second World War, and prefabricated temporary bungalows (“prefabs”) were one solution.
   160,000 prefabs were made in the late 1940s. They were only intended to be used for 10 years – but many were still lived in up to the 70s.
   The Prefab at the Museum was one of 46 prefabs on the Finch Lane Estate in Amersham.  It is a Universal House Mark 3 design and was made by a company in Rickmansworth.
   The Museum is in contact with the Brant family who lived in the Prefab from 1948 – some of their family photos are on the mantelpiece.

Great pic's and info'Liz! Many considered these houses pretty luxurious,as they usually had a fridge,a bathroom,of course,and were well insulated! There were still prefabs on Scotland rd till the late 70's, early 80's!
