stairs and outer walls

The stairs are in and they are very beautiful and simple! We used a fossilized stone, so every piece looks different! I am pleased!

The outer walls are also painted! We decided to use brown....different and beautiful! Now our house needs its "face"!!!!! We will have tiles in the front! They should do it today....but nobody was there!Maybe tomorrow, who knows!

stone wash plaster and tiles

Everything happens very fast! The house is rendered and all the borders,window sills and lintels  are "stone washed", it looks a little bit like Italian Stone Wash Plaster! Very common in Taiwan!

The first tiles are also in! The kitchen walls are ready and the 2 bathrooms are ready ,too!

And the last frame is also in!

Borders,sills and lintels


We used outdoor tiles for our 2 bathrooms! Rather uncommon in Taiwan!
