“We are good to go. Thank you Builderscrack Yo can stick to time frames here in France but George didn,t waste andy time. We are not quite where we wanted to be but very happy with progress for this stage. We were tripped up with Lapeyre at Coignieres. They failed to have our tiles that were pre ordered twice they deliverd a front door that was custom made with a faulty that the can,t get a technicain to for 6 weeks and we had to pay 100 Euros in case it was us that was wrong.

As always with supplier here they are slow unreliable and generally don,t care. Plus they all stop for lunch. Don,t deal with Lapeyre. But the one thing we do have is excellent work by George and his team. We gave him high quality materails, the tools he need and he can be very proud of his.
