You can't find a good builder anywhere these days

We kept telling our builder we wanted the fireplace on the inside... I think something went wrong in the translation!!!!


Photographed in Le Grand Pressigny - "Come on baby light my fire" if you can!!!

Either a very shallow house with a pair of rooms extended from here almost across the narrow roadway, or these are what is left of the building that housed the 'four banal'... unfortunately, there is no information there! It might well be the latter as the building housing a bread oven caught fire locally the other week as they fired the oven up for the fete du pain.
I think Nick and Jean should try and find out....

Tim - I wrote about the fireplaces http://averygrandpressigny.blogspot.com/2010/04/olden-days.html
...if the link works, which sometimes they don't...

Thanks, Jean.
I must have missed that posting... demolished then to widen the roadway... must have been a very small one up, one down then.
Link didn't work, but a simple cut'n'paste worked fine.
