Living and Building a home in the heart of France

A Grand Entrance
The posts and gates have waited patiently, now their time has come. We dig 50cm deep holes, we measure a dozen times to be sure, and with David's help the mighty oak posts are concreted in either side of the driveway.
Nice black chunky hinges get bolted top and bottom. It involves 5 trips to DIY stores to get the right fittings. The result - they meet pleasingly level in the middle, they clear the ground, and after a coat of teak-oil they look most impressive.
