Settled on a design.

Trevor's rendering of the proposed rebuild. 
This is the design that Trevor and Mingma settled on. Though it would have been both easier and cheaper to build a single-story structure, the norms of Sherpa culture are such that doing so would have relegated Mingma to a much lower place in the social order of the village. As we are trying to remain sensitive to such intricacies, our final plan will include a second story, which should also allow the family to resume the traditional practice of housing livestock in the ground floor.
