As you can see, the pictures have arrived and the house is finally taking its finished shape. The 'tower' in the middle is based on the pigeonniers that are typical in the area and were where the pidgeons were kept (for fertilizer for the vines). We will use it for something more mundane, as an office.
The final picture is of our builder, hard at work! He is really quite slim and is wearing lots of clothes because it was below freezing. It was so cold that their gas fired nail gun had stopped working!
