Spent an hour and a half reading through the application for the “Permis de Construit” and working out where we are deficient. Thanks to Andy (the architect) and Martin (structural engineer) we think we have it all covered. It is going to take a few hours to pull it all together and get it checked before we hand in 4 (yes FOUR) copies in to the Marie. Having addled our brains with paperwork we set about clearing out the second outbuilding. Considering it is only just over 2m x 2m inside we salvaged a couple of ton of old slate. Enough lifting and carrying rock for a while. Think we may do something a little more creative tomorrow.
