Renovation project - Health and safety in France
John is working on the electrics again
today, and he has to get the new wires through the big external wall.
The old wires go through but he cannot
He works out on the kitchen wall where
he thinks the should be and there is nothing for it other than to hit
the wall with a hammer until he finds the area where the wires are.
I watch him balancing on the ladder
and work top and leave him to it, I am painting the last wall in the
living room when I suddenly here a bang followed by a clattering
followed by cursing, I go to see what John has done, to find him sat
on top of the fridge freezer with his hammer and the new kitchen
cupboards in disarray.
They had given way beneath him, now
this is a big tip for anybody, do not balance on cupboards that are
not attached and have a solid wooden worktop perched on them.
It is not safe!
But on a positive note he has found
where the electrics come through
We also realise that there are pipes
in place so that the new electrics can just be
pulled through the wall, this will make life so much easier.
for now it is a case of emptying the work tops and putting the
temporary kitchen back together
