I am an American Carpenter in Wrocław, Poland. I am self-employed. I frame wood framed custom homes for Poles that want an alternative to “traditional” housing. In Poland, the developers build big, expensive, concrete bunker type homes, with steep roofs like a church. They call it “traditional” housing. This is a problem in Poland as the average Pole will never afford to build these homes. The result is that only the wealthy can afford to build in Poland. The developers in Poland like things the way they are as they feel they can make the most money from this situation and just call it “tradition”. With all those millions of people stuck in those awful “russian style apartments”, they don’t offer any alternatives. And this is the problem with housing in Poland.
