Les Finitions

We are now in the phase of les finitions’ as our local friends keep telling us. The only thing is that these ‘finitions’ are very numerous! I did a jobs list yesterday – the finishing straight is a very long one…

We are on to things like skirting boards, tiling (lots), cleaning, touching up, boxing in…and cleaning tomettes.


Tomettes are old handmade terre cuite floor tiles. We had loads of them in one of our barns and wanted to use materials from the farm as much as possible. There weren’t enough for the floors, so we have decided to put them in the window sills. We bought some stuff to clean them up from a specialist a little while ago, but I found that jet washing was much more effective. The ones on the left have been cleaned, those on the right haven’t. Next job is to seal them and then Roger can get on with making the windows look rustic… another job on his list!
