House

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.

Cables Everywhere – 10.0

There are tubes stretched across every room, doorway, and open space. The electrics are going in and causing Graham concern.

Watch a short video showing the house progress between week 30 and week 32.

Catching Up – 10.2.1

Our next site visit is rapidly approaching, and I’ve barely had time to catch my breath after the last one. Things are moving quickly, and combined with a busy work schedule, it is easy to feel overwhelmed.

Measure Everything – 10.2

After an anxious meeting, we return to the house during the weekend to better measure and track what is happening. We find problems, fixes, and encounter our first snake in the garden.

Gathering Walnuts – 11.0

The plumber introduces more problems for our bathroom and we gather our first bag of walnuts.

Model versus Reality – 11.0.1

From the beginning Graham has maintained a detailed model of the house. With the build underway, we learn just how accurate the model has been.

Progress Week 34 – 11.1

Watch a short video showing the house progress between week 32 and week 34.

Plumbing, Pipes, Burners, and Tiles – 12.0

The pipes across the floor trouble the tiler and we change our minds on tiles in the bathroom.
