Une belle aventure

Our new life in 'Les Vosges'

Last of the clearing stage. Hourray!

We finished clearing the upstairs, on top of the rooms and the barn.
This truly felt like such an achievement.

On top of the room. All cleared and cleaned…ready for the carpenters. And more cleaning afterwards….

How it was when we arrived in August, some interesting things left behind by the old owners of the property.

We had to take all these tiles downstairs but via the dodgy planks of wood and the stairs…That was going to take hours so:

Nice one Matt!

Matt got a big Quad to play with and I got this! Haha but fear not I am over the moon with it.
Hoovered more than 20 spiders and webs on its first day. Proper party central in that hoover bag.

And this is why I started wearing a cap. Cobwebs are dreadful enough but when they’re over your head. Arrrgggg…

Another glamorous job, scraping the floor.
Actually when I think of it: October was pretty much scraping or digging for me.

While I was clearing these areas, Matt was building the scaffolding – ready for us to clean the wood and treat it.
He did pretty well as he absolutely hates heights.

I found Roland near the scaffolding one morning. Not too sure how it got there!?!? RIP.
