    There were a bunch of houses built after WW2 using non-standard (i.e. not bricks and morter) methods. The goal was to get them up as quick as possible, so they weren't designed to last, but have done so anyway. The consensus seems to be that they can be perfectly fine, but there's risk involved because no-one knows exactly how long they'll last, so loads of banks won't touch them with a long spikey pole, which means getting a mortgage can be a pain, so selling it on would be more difficult and it's not likely to increase in value as much.

    There's a bunch of them look like MrPons. Except the right way up of course.
