Brittany 2010

Category: Barn Conversion Journal October 5th, 2010 by mbc

A number of the windows in the chalet are postbox shaped – wide and short and providing a great framed landscape view of the exterior. Something I’ll bear in mind for any future project. These shorter-than-the-norm windows also allow for usable, reachable storage above them and with my mind slowly turning to storage this effective use of space is something to bear in mind.
