We're trying to nail down a budget for our future move to 14 – probably Caen itself.
Kitchen fitting will probably be a simple affair – assembling half a dozen cabinets (Ikea), fitting worktops and installing them. No complicated appliance installations (all freestanding), pipework etc.
I've seen various ads from handymen / builders etc, typically quoting €10-20/hour. That's fine, but how many hours? And is €15 a reasonable price for budget purposes?
My guesstimate is 2 days x 7hrs @ €15 = €210, so I have put €250 in the budget.
Not a big item, I realise, but lots of small items do add up – and this will be our retirement home, so we want to keep a close eye on costs!
Speaking of small items, what's a likely budget for having 3–4 electric sockets installed? (We're talking modern apartment building, not a barn being renovated or anything else heroic!)
And of course if anyone knows / can recommend someone suitable in the Caen area, please let me know.
