While reflecting on 2014, we became a little sentimental and thought we’d look back a little further. Our drafting manager, who previously worked for builder AV Jennings, was cleaning out and came across a plan dating back to 1991 called ‘The Hollywood’ (illustrated to the right).
Compare the AV Jennings Hollywood from ’91, to our current Hollywood home. Carports were an accepted norm, as were 9m2 bedrooms, and Alfrescos were a concept of the future. So is the cost of building increasing, or is it just our expectations that are increasing?
