Topic bescription:

Hello, 



I recently bought a house to restore and while I was cleaning it up I found a makers mark:



06

W.J.RIX



St Albans



I'd love to know more about this house. Based on the materials used in the build I would date it between 1950-1980. Likely 70s. This is becaue the screws used have a domed top, which I believe help date it to pre-1980. 



My intention is to discover more about the house itself, it seems certain that it was based on a real place at the time as there is both a front and back door, and the house opens on the side- clearly a custom build for a purpose. I'd love to know any more about the maker too, but so far my searches have been unhelpful. Any help much appreciated!



I've included a couple of photos here:
