Post War / 1940’s Period

 

The Post War style homes are simple and modern in design, and usually made from weatherboard, asbestos cement or brick veneer. Materials were scarce during this time, reflecting both the economic constraints and the move towards contemporary designs. Building forms were simple with limited embellishments, set well back from the street with skillion, flat or butterfly roofs, metal casement windows, weatherboard cladding and few plaster or cornice moulds. Below are some of our Post War/ 1930’s skirting boards, architraves & doors as well as some typical combinations.
