Restoration work in France requires loads of patience as life in France is all about “the no rush” We have had to understand very quickly that the lovely gentle pace in France applies to building and renovation too – I am told that to create something so beautiful it takes time….
THE INTERNAL WORK
Next we needed to decide on how many bedrooms, the size of the communal living area and what to do with the area in the smaller barn.
Although we have had all our external design plans passed
by the Mairie of Tremolat, the windows and design externally have to match our design internally.
It is important to build the internal beams which is all being built out of Oak.
Finally after months of frustration we are finally seeing the end of loads of hard work. We are loving the lovely light airy feel to the final finish
The internal walls are finally taking shape
