If the eyes are the windows of the soul

Are windows the soul of a house?

These photos were actually taken the other evening, so there may be EVEN MORE developments that we haven’t seen, but I did want to share the fact that the windows and doors are being installed in our laneway.

More updates will come as we progress!
