The limas atas, is our most recently completed building, and from our more than slightly biased point of view, our most successful architectural accomplishment to date. It takes the same base structure of the Limas gede, (11 x 5.5 meter rectangle, with 8 primary pillars), but is instead split cleanly in two, with a shared 2.5 meter breezeway for ventilation, privacy, and/or nongkrong.* Simple, compact bedroom, another set of dramatic recycled, kingsized beds, a work desk, and an additional indoor/outdoor bathroom makes both rooms ensuite, allowing for friends/family to rent both sides of the house, or for it to be happily cohabited by strangers.
It features views of the Cibuntu river gorge, from within the rooms, as well as from its rather throne style commodes, and is a house with few corners, to allow for these, as well as the trees. For the time being, only one of the two rooms is available for rent, as the second bath is still in the finishing stages.
*nongkrong-v- to hang out, discuss things, is possibly the most popular Indonesian pastime, here supported architecturally by a covered set of sofa/stairs, as well as a set of large stones uncovered in the building process, with which we formed a campfire circle in the back of the house. (please do ask for our assistance in lighting a campfire)
