Probably not Roseheather. This is just a posh house belonging to a rich person. Our houses usually just have gardens, some small, some a little larger :-))

The little house in the link is a permanent home, meaning they live there all the time, not just for vacation, for the people who own this one. So it probably isn't a pied-a-terre.

The town has many by that builder. He also worked on a restaurant and the roof of that restaurant also has the wavy roof. I think I realized that you were joking about this one being a "small" house. I thought when I saw it, that it looks like some here which are referred to as McMansions. McMansion is not a particularly complimentary term, it usually is used with newer homes that are huge for the amount of land they are built on. Not sure this qualifies as a McMansion, however. ; )

Een beetje wel Impie. Zo`n huis lijkt me wel wat, alleen al die 6-kantige erker, met dat ronde balkon erboven :-)) En ben altijd al gek geweest op een huis met een rieten dak. Zou alleen wel wat meer van die tuin gemaakt hebben, ze hebben nu gewoon een (goed onderhouden) weiland voor `t huis :-)))))

:-)))) I was just being ironic Roseheather. I couldn`t find the right English word for "stulpje" (meaning a small unsubstantial house) and in the end settled for pied-à-terre :-)))
The house in the picture is very big and very expansive :-)))
Love the (little??) house in the link you gave me, which might well be called pied-à-terre maybe.

Now you're talking money!

Hum, the roof line reminds me of some structures in a town in MI which were called Mushroom Houses. See: http://www.jigidi.com/puzzle.php?id=47L7CVPZ

And you can follow that the link in that site to some more of the structures with this wavy roof structure. ; )

Lovely. I'm not sure what ... never mind, I just did a search, and it is temporary housing or vacation housing. ; )
