While we are thinking on the subject of all the good land there is to build lots of tiny home on in Thanet, here’s a photograph of the Sea Bathing site I took recently, so you can see how it’s progressing.
What concerns me over so many of the houses - some no larger than a super-size rabbit hutch - I have seen built over the last few years is the generally shoddy standard of workmanship. It’s frequently but not always, a “Get them up quickly and sell them quicker”, attitude and very little attention appears to have been given to the effects of our local weather and its corrosive impact on any exposed metal surface. So last year’s new iron railings on an apartment balcony with a sea view, is this year’s speckled display of rust.
I suppose that if it’s of any consolation, many of the cheap and ghastly-looking ‘luxury ‘retirement’ blocks that are now being thrown up around the island, won’t last much longer than their new owners without considerable and costly attention over the years.
