Brick? You don't know you're born!

18 inch thick rough stone walls?

Luxury! We dreamed of thick stone walls!

We used to live in a prehistoric cave full of man-eating dinosaurs, the only way we could get mains power to the back was to hang our dear old dad off the nearest pylon and form a human chain to conduct the electricity!

But you try telling that to young folk nowadays...
