    Very elementary! Wood on a base of stone seems to have a very long tradition; in German, the word for the second floor is “1. Stock” which hints on wood, because the ancient way to build a house in mountain regions was a stone basement with wood on top.
    A living room with a huge window is great, but concerning the bedroom, I would not feel at ease to be exposed like this, even if nobody is there. Human instinct has not yet completely adapted to the protective power of transparent material like a glass pane.
