Q: My boyfriend and I have just purchased a ski chalet in France which we're absolutely thrilled with. It's a massive project however, as the house — although charming from the outside — is lacking in charm on the inside.
As most aspects of this house need instant readdressing (double glazing, new bathrooms, new kitchen, etc.), that will be where we put our money. There are other parts of the house we may just have to live with for sake of cost-saving, such as the pine cladding on the ceilings and walls.
