We live on the fifth floor of a block in Lyon and I think the window in my 6 year old daughters room is unsafe. Does anyone know of somebody who could look at it and install suitable safety equipment (a grille or mesh for example) to prevent her falling out for a reasonable price? Is this the responsibility of our landlord who is pretty elusive when it comes to repairs! Many thanks
I recently bought and renovated an apartment in an old building in the Perrache area of Lyon. Every few days the bathroom has a sewage smell, emitting from the shower drain and/or toilet. I have tried pouring certain plumbing related products down the above, but the smell would come back after a couple of days. Any suggestions to the cause or remedy would be much appreciated. Thanks
Hello there, If you have just relocated or are soon relocating to Lyon and your new place is unfurnished, you might be interested in some furniture. I am leaving Lyon for another town, Toulouse, and I don't want to sell or move my furniture now because I'm not sure if I'm going to stay there for more than a year. So, I'm offering my furniture on loan for a year at a very cheap price, plus a deposit that I'll give you back when I take my things back. It's not of great value, but nice and comfortable.For more details, photos and to find an agreement that suits both parties, please contact me by email. All the best.
Question for a knowledgeable electricien or electronics engineer....will an American electrical item function here in France with a prise adapter when the item is designed for 110 volts & our system is 240v please??? If it needs a transformer what do i need to buy & where on Internet perhaps. Many thanks for looking.
We've a small roof window which is double glazed but the seal has obviously gone so it is misty/dirty within the panes. The make/size identified from the plate on the side of the window is 'Toiciel Europa 610AG 577 AO8OOL'. I've looked on line but can't find this make of window although one site seemed to suggest it was a Bricodepot own brand? Does anyone know of this make and if so, is it possible to buy just the double glazed unit rather than having to replace the whole window?

Does anyone know where I can get an armchair recovered in material at a reasonable price in Lyon? So far, I've only found a place that quoted €500 for the labour alone and that + the cost of material would be more than the chair is worth! Suggestions gratefully received. Thanks
