My Renovation Magazine launches The French Connection project


house-frontWe launch project to renovate 100-year-old stone house in the heart of France.

My Renovation Magazine has launched a major renovation project in the heart of France. Can you help? The net’s fastest growing renovation and conversion magazine is aiming to convert a dilapidated, sprawling 100-year-old semi-detached stone house into our shiny new offices.

The building in Bourganeuf, France, has been abandoned for nearly ten years and suffers from damp, poor wiring, an overgrown 500 sq ft garden, lack of insulation and years of neglect.

My Renovation Magazine plans to renovate the property, dubbed ‘The French Connection’, and have it working as our full-time office by May 2015.   Every month My Renovation Magazine will be publishing an update on The French Connection with news of our progress.

My Renovation Magazine publisher Kizzi Nkwocha said: “This is an exciting project for the magazine. Once complete, The French Connection will provide us with headquarters in the middle of France. From there we will be able to publish an online magazine that reaches from Australia to the UK and the US.  In practical terms, our first job will be to concrete the downstairs floors in the building as they have been destroyed by damp.   Once we’ve got the floors in, we will be tackling the wiring, insulation and panelling. The French Connectionis a massive undertaking but, with the help of our readers, I’m confident that we will make the Aprilst deadline.”
