This house has always been a little gem, with space to add and delete walls. And the plot is large enough to do something with once one has flattened the dubious little mountain featuring one tree.

So I added a pond:

and more landscaping

And changed the rooms. The ground floor has a bigger bathroom now, a kitchen and dining area and a living space, mostly open plan. The top floor has 3 bedrooms and a bathroom, and I moved the bathroom to be more practical in terms of the bedrooms.

Made the high roof lower and neater; added new wall and floor covering, and partially decorated. Fully furnished, though. I think it will make a good vacation home.
