  Colorful houses
by Sharrie

Timber framed houses with white walls & color roofs characterises the Falklands housing.

Yes, these islands are lacking in trees & the locals had no choice but to import building materials. & the cheapest & lightest? Wood & tin. Everything had to be imported across the rough seas. Hence, most buildings were built along the seafront so as to minimise movement across the countryside.
