Our new life in 'Les Vosges'

When we first saw the house, the chimney had a cooker linked up to it and it was full of wood.

So first we took the wood out and uncovered some treasures.

Then we took all the metal stuff away. A ‘ferailleur’ from the neighbouring village came to pick everything up.

We had the chimney swept. (It was pretty clean).

Then Eric lent us a useful thing: ‘un pare-feu’.
