Back Home


These cottages seem to be harking back to places "back home" naming Scottish and English towns. Santa Cruz however comes from the original name of the estate from which all these housing blocks were subdivided back in the 1890s.

  2. This is horrible... I'm tempted to steal people's signs now...

  4. I don't think I have found a single example of a house-name down here that is attached to a fence. They are nearly all located on the wall adjacent to the front door.

    These are lovely.

    I think the ones in Paddo were mostly created en-bloc by the builder/developer, whereas yours seem to have come from the owner.
