Getting rid of rubbish at the Brantome recycling depot (dechetterie)

A nice little cast iron wood burning stove left at the dechetterie - I was very tempted to take it home, but it was broken and I was restrained by Margaret, who is trying to get me to throw away things I have collected over the last 40 years (in case they might be useful !)

Framing over the stair hole down to the sous sol. On the kitchen side will be a work top possibly with an oven unit.

On Tuesday 13 March the hemp insulation arrived from Castillon - the whole living area was filled with the cardboard boxes of semi rigid panels.

The spare bedroom on the mezzanine was also filled with hemp insulation panels.

The cellar store housed the loose hemp stalk insulation (chenevotte) to be used under the floors.

More boxes of hemp in the bureau.  Wherever they were put. they were in the way and had to be moved again and again. Luckily thay are light.
