Living France - - The Essentials -

• Are you ready to com­mit time, money and emo­tional en­ergy?

• Is the build­ing the right ‘shape’?

• Are there dips in the roof or bulging walls?

• If in doubt, seek pro­fes­sional ad­vice

• Hab­it­able does not nec­es­sar­ily mean a house you would want to live in

• Be re­al­is­tic about costs – €1,000 to €1,500 per square me­tre for a full ren­o­va­tion is a good rule of thumb

• Be wary of pre­vi­ous ren­o­va­tion work

• Stand back, think care­fully and don’t be afraid to ask ques­tions
