We are in the process of buying a second house in the village! The idea was to buy a lock up/garage/shed as a storage facility, but part of the old bakery came up for sale.
The estate agents phrase, "Could do with some internal modernisation" springs to mind, so does "blank canvas" Oh and the 1st floor, floor is missing etc etc!!
Anyway, the front and back doors have been replaced with uPVC as a temporary job, as the previous original wooden doors were well past their sell by date by about 50 years!
Same dilemma then James, but I think we would prefer to replace these with traditional wooden doors, in keeping with the style of the existing town houses in the street. Just need to know where to buy them. I've not come across any archictectural salvage yards as there are in the UK, so far. Does anyone know of such a facility in the Aude/Herault?
Good luck with your deliberations James.
