The walls are now starting to take shape and the window frames are in. The rooms seem to look bigger with the walls up. The back terrace with sliding doors looking out onto farmland looks fantastic.
I always had air conditioning when I lived in cities in south east Asia, but honestly, if you have a nice open house which allows the breeze to go right through, you really don’t need to put in air conditioning. A fan to help circulate the air is fine.
All of the windows have nice views of the garden, including the well established mango trees.
