French Country

My life in France is not what I expected.

The rental unit “before”

2 Comments

I have had a request for a series of "before" shots. So okay, here is one. I think this is about as bad as it gets. This is the living room in the rental unit. Note peeling original-not-retro wallpaper and sad carpet. Note dropped ceiling and very badly neglected sideboard. This is about as bad as things get, though. structurally the building is quite sound, especially considering its age. Much of the damage has occurred since the previous owner died, two or three years ago. So as I find other images of things that will vanish I will post them. You will see little that is derelict, which is very good news.

Really, the less you know the better.

  1. Is that sixties era wall paper? If this is the rental unit, then its the one you’re currently staying in right?

  2. No, the entire house is uninhabitable. I guess if you liked being in an unheated space full of mildew but no other sign of water — yes, that means no toilet — you could make it work. They have camp stoves here. I’m pretty sure I know where the outhouse is. You have the address of the place where I am staying: Google it.
