Has anyone seen or used a good tool shop in Brussels? Preferably near Evere? I am looking for some very hard drill bits to drill through an incredibly hard reinforcement in a concrete wall in our house, I think carbide drill bits are required. My good steel bits do not even scratch it! I do not think that Bricco is suitable for this kind of thing. Cheers! Nick Evere
I am looking for a wardrobe and would like to have it delivered and assembled. I tried the IKEA route but its was too much trouble so I welcome any other options. I live on the 3rd floor with no elevator. Any creative suggestions offered would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
I have various items of plus-sized clothing available for pickup from Heverlee ranging from size 42 to about size 48. There are several smart–casual trousers and jeans and a couple of dresses and jackets that would be suitable for weddings or work. If you have any interest, please message and I can send photos.
Hoping someone can provide some clarify for me. We are moving to Brussels soon and I've narrowed our search to Uccle or Woluwe Saint Pierre.We don't want to live in Brussels city (we are in our mid forties with two small dogs). So we want a house with a garden.I've been trying to research the shopping/bars/restaurants in both areas. In a nutshell, I want to live somewhere that has enough shopping and bars and restaurants to keep us amazing so that we can just pop into Brussels if we feel like something different.For example for lived in London for several years, and I loved the concept that most areas had their "high streets" that had plenty of shopping/bars/restaurants, and then you could still head to London if you wanted to.Im imagining that Uccle and Woluwe Saint Pierre will be similar (but I'm sure on a smaller scale).Is this right?So if you fancy a night wine bar or restaurants, you'll have plenty to choose from?Thanks for the advice.
Hello, I am looking to buy a place soon in Brussels with the view to renovate it. I need a lot of information as this will need a lot of work. but initially:I am looking for a recommended window supplier. English speaking Builders/plumbers/electricians or all-in-one tradesman. Also, the general concensus on whether tools and/or materials are cheaper here in Belgium or UK. I realise this is fairly vague but perhaps there is a general trend. (e.g. kitchen or bathroom suites, power tools, windows)Thanks in advanceJacob
Hi,We are almost finishing our temporary house hunting. 2 of the best apartments cost both the same, and have everything that we need (garage, internet, furnished, etc). The best one is located at Quai des Péniches, 1000 Brussels and the other one is at Avenue Louise. Quai des Péniches is close to Gare du Nord, and I have some doubts if it is a safe zone for my kids and wife.For your family what would you choose the better apartment in Quai des Péniches, or a not so good apartment in Avenue Louise?Thanks,Joaquim
