Taking on renovation project

Recommended Posts

'Ello, 'ello, 'ello, you're in the right place then matey[:D]

Seriously, you can either plough through LOADS of stuff on here, with new threads on the same, and different things, occurring daily, use the search for specific queries that might have been discussed already, or ask a specific question.

All will get good results.

DO be careful about technical questions though: you will get conflicting answers in some cases, so a search, reference to printed literature etc are the way forward.

Be prepared to wait for replies on some queries, the "experts" aren't always on here.

And DO continue to post in good English if you don't want your threads sidetracked[;-)]

Our property is in the Limousin, specifically in the SW corner of 87, the Haute Vienne, almost in 24, Dordogne.

Welcome to the forum, btw.

Hi, We live in Nth Creuse & finished our renovations nearly 3 years ago. As previously mentioned, you should find a lot of answers on the forums. If your thinking of converting barns, don't forget you need permission, getting of which is an adventure in itself & that's before you start the work, plus depending on size, you may have to have plans drawn up by a French architect.   Do you plan to do all the work yourselves?  If not, make sure you employ fully registered/insured artisan with references.

Good luck.
