The Renovation Project

The aim with this project was to purchase a house in France, and to renovate it, so that we can use it as a holiday home and, perhaps in the future, spend longer periods of time there.  Being adept at most aspects of DIY, we decided that we would project manage this ourselves and carry out as much of the work as possible.  We knew there were certain aspects of the project (such as re-roofing) that we would not attempt ourselves.

This page of the website will take you through the stages of our renovation as the project develops.
