This blog is a ‘tale of two Brities’, renovating an old, run-down fermette and barn in Haute-Corrèze, Limousin. We are Sophie and Graham, two Brits who have long-dreamed of having a place in rural France. We will be detailing the nitty gritty of the renovation and sharing details, links and images to help others who are undergoing similar projects. We want restore the property in as eco-friendly and low-carbon a way as feasible, with a very tight budget. If you are doing something similar, we’d love to hear from you.
