Photos from Nigeria & Lubumbashi, The Democratic Republic of Congo
We just received several pictures of a new build of Limestone. Because of the central courtyard in this design, it is an appealing house plan for those who need more security and privacy.
A client has built the Barbados design in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Here are a few pictures. Enjoy.
