I have been blog-chatting with JP at https://husifrankrike.com/ where he and his wife have been musing on restoring features at their medieval village house ( also in the Aude) and perhaps commissioning replacement features.
JP has what looks like a very beautiful, original shaped stone window surround, historically blocked up, and is considering the possibility of having a stained glass panel in this. See his blog entry 26/01/2017 (link above).
Although this little house in Brenac was way too small and dark for us, it did have this wonderful feature in the living room- a beautiful little arched, stained glass window to the rear.
Can you see it? So, you have your precedent JP! Not that you need my permission of course!
I am very happy to see that JP is also recycling much of the wood and tiles found in his house. We are also recycling everything with any age and merit that we possibly can.
These terrazzo skirting panels from the tulip room left –will go into the terrace bedroom-right.
Also, these old, very long hard wood joists formerly supporting the ceiling in the tulip room (which will now be exposed to the roof) will be perfect for another project Chez Nous.
