Une belle aventure

Our new life in 'Les Vosges'

Wrecking-it on a bigger scale

The builders ‘The Cornite Brothers’ were due to start in the New Year, once the carpenters had finished their work. So we had no time to waste and had to clear the garage completely and Matt had to take all the wooden floor boards out.

In true ‘Matt & Mu’ style we still had loads of stuff to move when the builders turned up. In our defense, in true ‘French Builders’ style they never really told us the exact date they will start. “if you see us in the morning then that means we’re working here’. lol It reminds me of all those restoration abroad type TV programs. Just as well we don’t have a tight schedule. We’ve learned to adapt and make the most of the sunshine some days….

We shall be re-using them, as they are ‘oak beams’ and pretty strong. For the moment, let’s just store them….over there.
