    >>We would love to have a Plumber anytime.

    After 3 years of work, there is still a lot to do here, we had almost built a house and even more because rebuilding leads to more and more challenges and finishes use so much time.
    We started with big projects, removed the roof, deconstructed some walls to rebuild them stronger, built some others wall and we built a concrete chaining to support the framing and then we constructed the roof.
    Massonery, is almost over with a few little things to do such as assembling parpaing to make a wall and a hut, build a concrete pillar and then do some coatings on it ; and also try to finish a dry stones wall.
    There is also some Wood-work such as making a compost bin and tiny finishes like nailing baseboards.
    We also have a few tiling to do on a floor and walls to finish the bathroom - and then plumbery work to fill the bathroom (and kitchen) with water.

    Lyon is 40min far and Macon 20min far by car or the train.
    We have got boxing, climbing and body-building material if you're crazy about sports.
    There is a little artificial lake 15km far if you want to have a swim.
