    Description

    We are a married couple of 45 years old with three children : the youngest is 13 and the eldest 21. We live an old house in Sarthe close to Le Mans. We have begun to rebuild it in a state-of-the-art fashion: Old paint (with flour or lime) ; Lime Coating, …

    So there is a lot of DIY left to do and our 4,000-square-meter garden needs a lot of care.

    Invite the world in our house seems a very good idea !
