This is a site to document the work that Chris and I are doing on our house in Coustouge. We bought the house on the 23rd of December 2010 and there is loads to do, and we are doing it all ourselves on a very tight budget!
The house will also be home to our businesses. Chris’s menuisière studio where he will create beautiful wooden furniture, windows and doors. And my Wine and Food School, La Maison de Rire, une histoire de gastronomie et vins. Where I will teach about the wines and foods of the Languedoc-Roussillon.
It is going to be a difficult project as we are learning on the hoof as it were. We will be getting help from a mix of friends, experts and workaways (travellers from across the globe, that exchange labour in return for accommodation, food and cultural experiences).
