Yes, some houses indeed suffer a lot, as they get older.
However, this only happens when they are neglected, mistreated, or just abandoned for years. It is like people.
The one that impressed me most was undoubted that little house in the center of the city of Seixal, left years ago by the death of its owner and that still housed his pants, his coat, and all his belongings. It looked like it was waiting for him…
Thank you. Até já!
