Le Vieil Atelier Renovations
The pictures which follow show in pictorial form the renovations from an old workshop, which the previous owner used for his furniture making, into the one bedroom holdiay home that we now call Le Vieil Atelier at La Petite Touche.
The pictures span a period of just over one year from when work started in earnest until the major works were completed.
These first two pictures show how this part of the house looked when we first took possession in September 2007.
In the salon, the new beam, and the old beam after sandblasting!
With new ceiling and dryline walls
and now decorated, with its retained quirky little window!
The Cave and the new Kitchen start to take shape
And also get the drylining treatment
And the almost completed decorations to the kitchen, whilst the cave will remain with "feature" bare walls!
The salon is tiled and the kitchen too
The staircase is fitted, the salon furnished
And finally kitchen fittings
The new floor is laid and stair cutouts made
And walls and insulation added
with decoration of the bedroom completed
while the bathroom and the new little room still await completion...
the bathroom now tiled and the shower installed and the bedroom tiled and furnished
The window aperture is made and the new front door is fitted
Ready for rendering and then the finished article - wow!
And how it looks in Autumn 2011.
