It all started in March with some damage on our fence and a kind of wood dumping on our property. It was not funny when you see this after a six hours drive.
Fortunately we had good weather and after two days of hard work, the fence was fixed and the dumped wood was collected. The 'funny' thing was that after we cleaned our property, twice somebody from the village asked us if we would like to keep the wood....like they had plans to clean it up.
In May we painted some beams and front door and in September and October we were busy to renovate the toilet room. During our earlier stays we noticed old water damage and mold on the floor boards under and next to the toilet.
After the boards had dried, they were treated with epoxy paint and with a new floor layer and plastered walls the toilet room looks very nice!
For 2023 we have plans to remove the barn in the front garden and to built a kind of fire wood storage. In 2022 it was very hot during the summer....too hot for working and painting so fingers crossed that 2023 will be more pleasant.
Since August 2017 I'm the owner of Maison Bonheur, an old farmhouse in the Vosges. Because of its location in the forest/nature the possibilities for nature/peace/relaxing lovers are limitless.
