Ok folks, I have been telling you all about the ridiculous things Dude and I have been going through in buying our first home in France. Well, I thought that before I finish the story, I would show you what this house looks like. Here is a video that I shot today while over at the house to commence with the huge remodeling project. The film is a little shaky at times since I filmed it with my Nokia phone and it didn’t come with a steady cam (stupid).
I think that you will get the gist of the place, though. I really do love it, but it has WORK stamped in big, red letters all over it!
Fair warning to all, I probably won’t get to the rest of my story until Monday. Sorry to all who hate cliff-hangers 😦 Here’s the thing, it’s the weekend and we are beginning the remodel project and it’s only Dude and myself doing the whole, ENTIRE project. Yes, that’s right. No contractors and no help, just us two. We have to work our little butt’s off as fast as we can since we have to have it ready (or I should say “habitable”) by 31 August. That is when we need to move out of our apartment.
Also, I do work a “regular” job 50+ hours work week, so I am fighting real fatigue. I promise to have the rest of the story out asap. It does have a happy ending……..I think.
Hope you enjoy the movie. Get your popcorn and Pepsi ready and then click….
Oh, one more thing. You’all better enjoy it since it took 3 hours to upload the dang thing on You Tube because my lame, French internet connection is so slow. Ok… that’s all…and I hope you like my show 🙂
