bobster Posted August 5, 2009 Share Posted August 5, 2009 hi all. im a french newbie and have a few questions. ive been thinking of buying a property in france and have been searching the net for bargains, im looking for a renovation job as im capable of turning my hand to most trades, im a plumber but been in construction a number of years. some propertys ive seen are for around 20000. to 25000 euros, yes these places are in a bad way, but i cant go any higher as im rather poor. my idea was to buy a property of this value and slowly renovate it , involving earning money in the uk and then coming over to france as much as possible for long weekends and sometimes weeks at a time. im not interested in earning money from the property, just would like a home that is paid for and to get out of this uk rat race. wondered if anyone else is doing the same sort of thing, sure there are. any advice on renovating , septic tanks, electrical, water connection prices , building supplies and all that sort of thing. oh yeah i also plan to grow my own fruit and veg, the real good life... i hope. thankyou very kindly for reading this.. au revoir...bob Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
