    Met a woman in cornwall a couple of years ago with a merc 609 ,luton with a roller shutter door,tranluscent roof let plenty of light in,when she lifted the roller up she had a verhanda with a stable door,kitchen window,inside a really funky reclaimed pine kitchen,easy seating,and a woodburner made out of the old calor gas bottle,shed just been to morocco ,her and the dog for four months,(inspired me enough to rip bessie the van apart,and start again! Seventh time in eight years,and she's not finished yet,can't remember her name ,but thanks!
