I would appreciate any advice and feedback re deploying solar panels to reduce my electricity bills and reduce my carbon footprint.  I have read many articles on this website (Thank you).  I am looking to find an approved company to start planning and installation.

Bonjour mes amis (hello my friends),I hope that this message finds you all well and positive.   I am a landscape gardener who travels around france in my camper working in most of the regions and am at this moment working down in cavaliere on the coast between le lavendou and st tropez.   The job that I am doing here as well as the annual garden tidy is fixing up all the old steps and repairing a lot of the terraced walls that have fallen down over the years. Unfortunately I will not have time to do it all this visit as I have obligations with other clients,so will have to return later in the year and apart from that I shall be running out of stone soon.   The stone that I have been using is pretty much just mountain rocks and field stones which do the job nicely.   If anyone out there has got a pile of stones-rocks that they dont want and wouldnt mind having them removed little by little over a stretch of time then please email me on gerdweller@hotmail.co.uk , or send me a text on 0673 631 996.    I have only got my camper so could only take a few away at a time,but if you had quite a large collection,I could maybe sort out a small lorry and a couple of lads to help out as I made this connection last year when we needed to get a lot of rubbish taken to the tip.   I shall be here for about another two weeks before I have to head up to the Dordogne for my next Job and probably will not be back here on the south coast until much later in the year due to quite a big work load on throughout the country.   I went down to have a look at stone for sale in the local towns and the only stone they had was dressed and was a ludicrous price,in fact,the most expensive that I have seen in france,and as someone who specializes in dry stone walling,I have seen a lot of prices.Over 400euros per M3 !!! A cubic metre does not go very far,that I can assure you.   Anyhow,am more on the scrounge for just normal stone from say hand sized upwards to the size of a breadbin that anyone may want removed which will save you having to pay to get rid of it or do runs to the decheterie and at the same time earn you a very good bottle of wine of the colour of you choice.   Maybe one day we will consider buying any good building stone any of you possess as the house and garden are built into the mountain side and the earth is always on the move with ground movement and hard rain,so quite a few small retaining walls have to get put in to help stop the mess that occurs after such movement.    Wishing you all a very happy and healthy 2018.Love and stuff to allJamie x

Happy New Year! We have an electric radiator in bathroom which has a remote control timer that is no longer working. Battery has been replace and one English good electrician looked at it but had never seen anything like it.  We think it needs someone who specialises in remote control (?). Does anyone know about them? Thanks.

Hi.We live in a small village to the north of Nice. We wish to add a small 2m x3m glass lean to conservatory onto the outside of our property, but on reading various web pages we are getting more and more confused. Some sites say that if the construction is less than 20 square metres, no planning permission is required. Others say that anything larger than 2 square metres requires permission. We had assumed that, as with the UK, conservatories are classed as temporary structures and do not require permission below a certain height and floor area.Any guidance or advice on actual requirements will be greatly appreciated, as we were on the verge of ordering the parts.HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE.
