Although I can understand your longing for a gentler, slower paced time, I'm afraid you are doomed from the start mate. Yes you can surround yourself with all the trapping of that bygone era......But as you yourself said "Nobody chats over the back fence anymore" So it's not the times that have changed...it's the attitudes. Yep, you can bring back the trapping of the past, but you can never bring back the consideration people had for one another back then.......the good manners that were accepted as normal behavior.....in is even increasingly difficult to find any traces of the common courtesy that was a part of the way of life back then. No, the times haven't changed....peoples attitudes have.......and on the hole....the lack of consideration & courtesy will only continue to get worse as most children being brought up today have no yard stick of acceptable values.....so what will their children's behavior be like?

Ben Frawley (19 days ago)
Ha ha, he reckons people are more isolated today with social media etc, yet even his partner wont live with him in his isolated world, I dont think your sales pitch is working really. Dont get me wrong I love the idea of what he is doing, but maybe only for a weekend. I wonder if he uses modern medicines.

Tony Wu how is he cheap? A lot of the things that he has are expensive.
linda martin (21 days ago)
I would like to have a victorian stove like that, and I like the rest of the house. I very seldom watch films later than 1960´s and I like films from 1930´s to 1960´s, so I can understand your wanting to retreat after work, to your vintage house. Unlike you though I could not be without a tv or laptop.

Austin Krause I do too, it isn’t bad at all, as a matter of fact, it’s more peaceful than living in the suburbs.
