    Since the log cabin is going to be build on a steep slope, it is absolutely necessary to be in a very good physical condition.
    I like to do projects like these with another person and since I also have a big terrain with lots of trees to be cut, I can do with some help every now and then with tree cutting too.
    Filling joints in the walls ( joints between natural stones) is also a project which needs to be done in the near future.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I live 45 kilometers from Clermont Ferrand. I can get you from the train station in Clermont Ferrand (50 kms)or Issoire (30 kms). I do not allow smoking in the house, but of course outside is not a problem.
    There are always neighbours and friends visiting. The next shopping village is 7 kms away. There you can swim in an natural lake with a beach. I have also friends with swimming pools, they invite us every now and then to have a cool luxury dive in their swimming pools.
    You can use my scooter or my bike if you want. When it is really hot it is really refreshing to have a little splash in the river on my terrain.
    In 5 quarters of an hour with the car you are in a French ski area which is called; Super Besse.
    Horse riding with my daughter or husband is also possible.
    I do want everybody to know that you stay with me at your own risk and I hope that you are properly insured.
