Hi. We have a derelict wooden hangar attached to our house which was used to store wood, It is made of corugated iron (roof and some walls) and wooden panels. To remove wooden cladding and corrugated iron, do we need permision from the Mairie.. we are also wanting to change the roof to a tiled one on to match roof of our house. Thanks!
Another money saver. Our iron wont work. The steam button broke. Now normallly it gets scrapped and we get a nice new shiny one. Not this time. No way pedro! a quick dig around and a 5 min internet search and the new bit is on its way for 12 euros pp inc. google is your friend, and your DIY mate
I got the gas bbq out this week as its not yet time for the traditional charcoal one (weather still a little capricious). Anyway I popped down to Gamm Vert and bought one of these new small propane bottles with the clip on "detendeur" and thats when my problems started. I cannot get the thing to screw connect to my bbq. Its fine with a big gas bottle for the house but not this small one. Has anyone else had the same problem?
Does anyone have any positive experience of air-source heat pumps in the Burgundy climate? I'm looking to install a heating system and am collecting information about these as well as pellet boilers. The house is very old, not well insulated apart from double glazing and has woodburners as secondary heating. Any recommendations/warnings gratefully received.
Hi Just had our two chimneys swept andIt would be interesting to know how prices compare. We've just paid the bill for ramonage, which was 120 euros, For that our French artisan cleaned two chimneys, one in the kitchen, and one for a woodburner in the Lounge. Seems a little steep to me?
Hi, most of our downstairs floors are stone and or tiles, anyone come a cross a machine like a vacuum cleaner or steamer to clean them? I'm getting a lil fed up of the constant mopping and wondered if anyone else had a better way? we have a couple of dogs to so seem to lways have the mop in hand in winter! Thanks
