It’s taken blood, sweat and tears – well blood and sweat anyway – but I’m now at the point that I’ve only got to install the two new windows in my bedrooms and I’ll have completed all the work that I promised the buyers I’d do. That will have to wait for the next spell of good weather, which could be a week or so away, so in the meantime I’ll be able to think about starting to clear all of my possessions that I want to keep and disposing of the stuff that I don’t.
Here are the shots that I took this evening of the now finished bay window and bathroom.
It’s now over a month since I lodged my ‘demand de permis de construire’ for my new house at the Mairie in Fleurac and as I’ve not received a negative response, this officially means that the demande will be granted and that I can start to move my plans forward. As soon as the purchase has been completed, which I’d like to do as soon as possible (although the seller still thinks that I should get confirmation first from the Département d’Urbanisme at Rouffignac, so I sent off an email this evening) I can put up a ‘panneau’ (panel) detailing the work that’s planned and start work as from 9th June.
In the meantime I can resume my search for a builder and press on with my moving arrangements, so much still to do. I try not to lose sight of the idea that as with all things, this too will end and my life will revert back to being tranquil and ordered. But there’s no chance of that just yet… 😕
