It was a few years after moving to France when we started looking for land to build a house in France. Now, the house is a home and we are settled.

This was our space to record that process (for ourselves) and to share it with friends and family across the world.

Progress Week 62 – 22.1

Watch a short video showing the house progress between week 60 and week 62.

Orbital Pole Sander – 23.0

Sanding continues. We have added an orbital pole sander to the mix and are making better progress.

List of Problems – 24.0

We meet the builder for the last scheduled meeting with a list of problems in hand.

Replacing Halogen with LED Bulbs – 24.1

I replaced the E27 halogen bulbs in the basement with 5000K LED replacements.

The (Almost But Not Quite) End – 24.0.1

This was to have been our last meeting with the builder. The meeting where everything is signed off and they change the locks and give us the keys. Except it wasn’t.

The House is Ours – 25.0

We met the builder for the final meeting. The house is no longer a building site and the keys are all ours.

Painting Every Day – 25.0.1

Since our last update we have moved and been kept busy painting.
