Hardwood trusses and handmade timber doors are handcrafted elements of this house that stand against the solid plastered internal walls. The client creates the external timber doors and windows of this house who also carried out much of the tiling, paving, and electrical work. It is a house with a design and structure that match well with the client’s taste.
