……but Tina this is not a ‘wooden house’……not even the balconies……unless you are referring to the magenta painted wooden doors and windows here.
But I get your point. There are some old ‘havailies’ still standing from the Sikh and the Mughal periods with wooden balconies and shutters. But most of them are decayed now with rotten woodwork and considered beyond repair. It will cost millions to repair and restore them. There is no real interest in their restoration.
Its kind of nice to see one of these old wooden houses being kept in good repair. So many are just falling apart and the balconies and pillars being sold as antiques.
The color is inappropriate and it would look much more beautiful natural. But the paint is a good protection.
More posts on old houses, please! I love them, esp. the ones in Kashmir.
