Renovation project no. 178 ( if that number is a little too high that's because that is what it feels like sometimes :)

A place for you to discuss your project and/or show photos of what you are doing?

Fortunately I had some big stuff delivered from local garandeau materiaux on Friday, but I tend to collect other stuff from Leroy Merlin on a regular basis. Wont be long before my project comes to a grinding halt.
Just a consequence of the seriousness of the situation though. More important things like folks well being to consider....

We just need the likes of Point P open just now to pick up what we need.
Update: I just received a mail of my local Point P (I've been their customer for 20 years), explaining the process aiming at limiting the contacts to the minimum possible:

- the show rooms will be closed to everybody
- the materials will only be delivered to professionnals registered with an account
- the professionnals will have to order ahead of time (on line, SMS or phone call)
- they will only be allowed to collect when everything is ready to be loaded.
That's very useful info JaF, thank you - it gives us an idea of what to expect. If our usual suppliers are working the same way, we'll be able to get what we need to keep us going for a while…hopefully that's also good news for mysty and ats.

Don't forget that a local Point P is generally a "franchise"... No national rules ! So they can decide of a different process where you are... Your phone will be your best friend :D
You learn from your mistakes but it's much quicker and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of other people ! :D

There's no Point P in our neck of the woods, but hoping that other suppliers will be working in a similar fashion. I'll ring in the morning to see what's what.

There's been a clarification of the new measures, and DIY stores will be open:

"Les établissements de bricolage spécialisés dans le matériaux de construction, quincaillerie, peintures et verres et les commerces de détails d'aliments et fournitures pour les animaux de compagnie sont eux aussi assurés d'ouvrir."

Thank you for that ! :good:
Things evolve very quickly !!! :D

Edit : The official text is here : https://www.legifrance.gouv.fr/affichTe ... 0041723291

Edit 2 : My son who works in Mr Bricolage has been called by his boss at 08:59 to go and open the shop at 09:00 :lol: (Yesterday, he had been told to stay at home...)
Things might change again in the opposite direction shortly following a meeting today between the government and the medical experts. If you need materials: don't wait !

Edit 3 : My son has been told after lunch to close the shop and put all the pallets of concrete blocks behind the doors to prevent people to break-in... Apparently, the shop will be closed at least for a fortnight. The boss said that they have enough money for paying the salaries for 3 months + the compensation promised by the government.
You learn from your mistakes but it's much quicker and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of other people ! :D
