Basements and attics seem to feature a lot in houses in other parts of the world. Ever wondered why they aren't as popular here?

Dear enthusiast,

It's always fascinating - especially when you're travelling - to take a good look at how people build, renovate and decorate their houses in other parts of the world. Especially in places with similar climates, and particularly if you've got the budget and freedom to be a little creative. Attics aren't that popular here, for example - but a properly done attic conversion is a fantastic way to make better use of an otherwise empty space.
