    We dont have a Human Resources department. He got rid of the last H&R manager because he was fed up of her telling him he can’t do this or that.

    His wife is now the HR manager. No conflict of intrerests at all.

    They are in court every year for one reason or other, usually ex employees on an unfair dismissal case, and the company are yet to win a case. She (the bosses wife) even represented herself in one case. Needles to say she lost.

    They are bonkers. However, those that do stick their ways out get paid, generally get paid decent money for the area and what we do, and most importantly get paid on time without fail so no such grumblings from me and so I turn a blind eye to their obvious shortcomings.

    When I was on site, Health and Safety differed from site to site. Most of our work was in the midlands where it was an hour long video followed by pictures for your barrier pass and an hour or more going through method statements. Total waste of a day.

    In Devon and Cornwall, it was, " there's the kettle, you know where I am if you want anything"

    Not long after we bought this place, we had the roof replaced by a local company, who, to be fair, did a good job. However, the lads working here, rather than use the ladders and scaffolding to access the roof would often run up the tile conveyor in the photo below. The crest is about 9 metres above ground level. Not a hard hat or safety harness to be seen anywhere, but they did enjoy their 2 hour lunch breaks, supplemented with liberal amounts of vin rouge.

    20 years younger and I'd loved to have taken a project like that on. I can do most things except gas and sparks. Always kept an eye out for French properties and a good friend owns a hotel/restaurant in Saint-Jean-d'Angély. It just never seemed to be the right time.

    The one thing I never understood about French estate agents, when looking online, was the total lack of photograghs and the complete dismissal of a floor plan. Floor plan was the most important thing when I ever looked at properties.

    Your house looks stunning from the few pics I've seen on here. Well done.

    Spot on about french agents. They haven't a clue about marketing. It's just accepted that a property will sell when the time is right, even if it takes 4 years.

    French family inheritance laws complicate things. My son is trying to buy a house at the moment which would be an executors' sale in the UK. Here, however, all 14 persons entitled to a share of the proceeds of sale have to be involved.

    At least he's got his hard hat on. Might come in useful.
