Building No 13

Woooh, steady on Limoux planning dept . . . there must be someone new working there. Someone who can see beyond the rectangular pink or yellow boxes with required orange tile roof that most contractors put up here.
We stumbled upon this part-made house up in the heights above Limoux: eco in it's build: loads of insulation and South facing. Hope they're going to put in all sorts of exciting grey-water collecting devices, renewable energy systems etc.

Ugly as a cheap airport building at the moment, but I can imagine the light streaming in through those large windows: the owner standing with cup of tea/Martini/Pastis, admiring the view of Limoux and the whole valley stretching out into the distance.
I think I would have put a whole run of windows into the top sticky-out portion of the construction however. Must be a reason for it — I'll have to go and ask them.
