Une belle aventure

Our new life in 'Les Vosges'

Wreck-It Randle has been….wrecking stuff again

We deliberated a lot about the bathroom and if we were going to keep the bath first of all. Although I am desperate to have a good bath, that one was quite damaged and actually fairly small.
So out with the bath. Rhys did help (for a tiny bit).

And a couple more trips to the ‘Decheterie’. The guys there are always happy to see us and we have a good chat with them,. Nice to keep on good terms, especially as they’re more than happy to keep a look out and put stuff aside for us! 😉 (don’t tell anyone) (Notice those bags are just amazing and come in handy time and time again)

The shower: the wall needed re-building, the pipes needed changing, we also needed to check the drain. The plan was that only the base would then remain and building around it seemed a lot more difficult than getting a new shower unit. Although shower units are fairly pricey. To our rescue, comes our local DIY store and an ex-display shower delivered for under 300€ : Deal.

Shall we keep the wall? Nah, it’s pretty rotten and damp so out with the wall as well.

Matt took the ‘horrific’ toilet out. Yay! And we’ll put the hot water tank in that cupboard.

Matt dug the drain for the new toilet.

Cutting the old drain. And our friendly builders are back so I asked if they wouldn’t mind concreting our drain, which they are doing now. Awesome!

So we finally have a decent toilet in the house, with a manual flush! 😉

And here is Wreck-It Randle in action: :)) Enjoy
