If you read this Blog for a while, you already know that with our house in France we also had a piece of raw, unrenovated space that we planned to do up for visitors.
Well, we present to you: The Studio. With the help of some really good guys, locally and from the UK, we were able to renovate this 35m2 (380sqft) space into the perfect guest suite.
The hard work, performed by a couple of fantastic guys from across the channel, was done way before Christmas and in time for our daughters Samantha and Lauren surprise visit for their mother's birthday. Ahead of schedule (minus the missing window) and on budget. They did a fantastic job. Contact me if you need the best crew in town...
But the small things, the decor and stocking up with stuff for cooking and such, took equally long. For no apparent reason really. In the winter we lost a bit of spunk, both Victoria and myself and had no desire to rush it together. You know how it gets. Maybe tomorrow. Ah next week, when the sun shines....Which turned into summer. Oh well. No pressure. But now, we are very very happy to say we have a fantastic space for visitors. Still need a microave and a TV. But all else, it's done!
With its own entrance this studio is an ideal place for family, friends, guests, etc., to come and stay independent from our own schedule or presence. Perfect for two or the single traveler. You are all welcome.
