Helle there, My name is Carin and I am living in the haute marne in France. 2 years ago I buy a nice home and realized my dream. It is a bed and breakfast with 2 rooms upstairs. The next step is to renovated a little house in the garden. There is nothing in that house so everything must by realised like water, electricity. the roof must be isolated and also the walls. In short there is a lott off work in that little house. I am looking for somewone who can do this job. It is a nice project and really a challenge.
The place where I am living is a little city with 97 inhabitants. The environment is a beautiful landscape. there is peace and when you looking for a quit place than this is it. All the big city,s are 30 minutes from here. Like Langres, Neufchateau, Chaumont. etc. etc
I hope to find here somebody who can help me with this project. Kind regards, Carin
