Living and Building a home in the heart of France
And So It Begins.....
Thursday 24th February 2005.
We came home through the village, said 'Ooo!' at the first 'roadworks' sign, said 'Oooooo! at the second, then found the water men had been. Next day they dug the first hole, had to hammer through solid rock, but laid a pipe and connected us to mains water. We now have a meter and a water pipe sticking out of the ground.
Mud and rock, our very first hole in the ground!
The men from Générale des Eaux were polite, hardworking, efficient (not to mention dishy...!) and tidied up after their work. Let's hope they are typical of all French workmen!
