Another Year, Another Rire

Finally I get a chance to write this blog and wish you all a very Happy New Year! New years resolutions: keep up to date with blog!

2013 was a busy year, a difficult year, but one that we achieved plenty and met some wonderful people. If I look back on some of the highlights they include:

Putting the echelle de meunier in for the mezzanine

Plastering the hallway and living room wall

We have underfloor heating in the key bedrooms and bathroom, and radiators in every room. In fact we are toasty warm this winter!

Our stone drain was re-dug, bettered and goes further

So actually when you look back it’s not a bad amount of work for the year! Having our own bedroom and bathroom is definitely a highlight, as is Louis’ room. We are a whisker away from completing the upstairs and have some exciting new plans for the house which will allow us to complete (the upstairs at least) sooner rather than later. But for now a big thank you to everyone who helped us, it is very much appreciated.

Here are a few of our ‘helpers’ for 2013
