Southern facade of the cottage, before the windows and doors were installed.
Cottage and a water reservoir that I also built across the patio. The water is harvested from the roof of the cottage and collected in the reservoir. I use this harvested water to water my gardens (fig field, almonds field, lavender, carob trees …)
