This has been done since we've been back in Japan.

The balcony railings and seating is well underway.

Hi STWW,

I have been reading thru your thread - impressive attention to detail. I can see you would annoy the Thai ... "craftsmen". :)

I may have missed it, but what does your architect call the raised section of roof? I'd like something similar, or at least run the idea past the (future) architect to cost it. Smaller for a smaller house in my case.

What is it in English - clerestory? You don't see many here in Australia, other than in government "passive cooling" or "building for the tropics" type publications. Seen one first hand in Khon Kaen province in a Norwegian man's house - his was a square room at the top of a stairwell, effectively the third floor. Hot up there, cool at the bottom!

Thanks

I have no idea what my architect called it, as I gave him my sketchup model and he drew up plans that were extremely faithful to that.

The design was mine and influenced by our Waterhouse build http://bit.ly/WaterhouseTimeLine or http://meekings.selfip.com/nui/Groups-of-photos/Water_house/Water_house.html

Having since read up on the design it would be called a raised roof or clerestory.

The balcony railings and seating is now virtually finished. The blacks are painted white at the moment but they will be painted to match the colour of the walls of the house later.

This is the kitchen side.
