We are an Anglo/ French couple,(we speak French between ourselves), and we are currently doing up an old house in the centre of the village of Sommieres, which is a pretty, Medieval town on the banks of a small river. We are going to create 2 appartments in the building, the top one with a roof terrace.. So far we have redone the roof, the façade, and replaced all the windows. We are now finishing off the bathroom on the second floor, so at least one floor will be livable. the whole of the third floor needs doing, at the moment it's just a big empty room with a mezzanine, so we need to make a kitchen and bathroom up there. We also need to do a concrete floor downstairs. We do not live on site at the moment, we live about 45mins away, so you can stay with us, and we'll drive over there. We have a futon bed in a spare room for you, plus your own bathroom downstairs, so its suitable for a couple if you're both willing to work. Its a very old stone house, and we are using old traditional methods,and natural materials, as we're in a protected area, so the rendering for example will be with lime wash, and apart from demolition and basic building work, there's also plastering and painting to be done,and other various jobs.
