Hi, we will soon need to replace the "mixte" gas and electric freestanding cooker which we bought with the house. Do we need a specialist gas fitter to uninstall the old one and to install the shiny new one? Also does anyone have recommendations of where to buy? Tia

we are planning to build a shed approx 10 m x 8 m -beside our home just outside villeneuve sur lot -  we are new here so trying to get our heads around the paperwork and the sourcing of materials. We are hoping to do most of it ourselves. Any words of wisdom would be appreciated.

Hello,I have recently moved to France and have an Australian gas BBQ which is Propane (I have purchased the French propane hose/connector).My issue isnt so much the gas bottle end of the connection but the opposite end which connects into my BBQ. The hose female screw on connector is I believe 1inch and the australian is 3/4 inch. Is there a way to move from 1"(French hose) to 3/4"(Australian connector).Has anyone faced this issue? Or where could I purchase such gas converters/fittings?Thanks againN

Hi, I used to buy parts for my filter/pump etc from aquaticmania who seem to have gone out of business.  Does anyone know of a shop in 65 or 31 that sells parts, specifically this time, I need an air pressure assembly for my pentair filter. (Cash-piscines don[t seem to stock it).  If no shops, any online sellers in France as I can only find them on Amazon USA or UK.  Thanks

Hello all,I have joined this forum as another way to look for work, my French isn't so great at the moment so it seemed a good idea to try these english speaking forums!!I am a professional plumbing and heating engineer (and am registered as such here in France) although I take on pretty much any kind of work and since being here have built various cabins, terraces and done general building. I also own a small mini digger and can take on works which include putting pipes or cables in trenches etc.I am based near Montesquieu Volvestre.I am not too sure how this forum works but feel free to message/email me.Thanks,Liam

Hello I'm an Ae I work with an online company.. I've been working for a year and my turnover has been over 2900 euros brut. My husband is unemployed with 900 euros and we get 314 euros caf. We are finding it difficult to rent as landlords round this region don't seem comfortable with my AE status and we aren't getting anywhere. Does anyone know of any landlord who would be fine with this. Any AEs who've been successful with renting?
