Back to the trulli houses - one was only 14 square meters in total and with a family of seven living in it - 3 slept upstairs, 4 down stairs, the kitchen was the size of a closet and toilet outside. The walls are white washed limestone and the roof is like a grey slate stone stacked into a cone shape.
