Next it is on to building a door for the back bedroom area, we currently have a large open landing which would be lovely if the house was staying as a house, but because we are going to be a B&B we need to make sure that the back bedroom and separate bathroom are private. To do this, we, this is the royal we again, are going to build a sliding door.
Once in place and fully working we hit a small problem, how do we lock this door? We cannot use a normal door lock as the door slides, so I head off to the builders merchants to find a suitable lock, we have decided on the sort of catch that you use on a gate. At the builders merchants I cannot find anything suitable and even with my new found French language skills I cannot find a suitable word. I end up with 4 shop staff trying to help me before one is found that can speak English, at this point he tells me that they don’t sell anything like that.
