This lively social history tells the story of the British home from primitive hut to modern suburb. It charts the evolution of the cottage, country house, terrace, flat, villa, semi and bungalow, explaining how each shaped the lives of its inhabitants. Illustrated with posters, prints and photographs – many in colour – it draws not only on architectural treatises and domestic manuals but also on novels, journals and letters to create a rich picture of the ways we have lived.
