    Ive asked before but its been over a year and still not getting anywhere. we have a 1950’s house just outside Frevent. it needs rewiring before we can carry on with decorating. we have had 3 electricians in so far, one said too big a job, second 13,000E and latest 18,000E. none seem too interested in doing the work.

    just asking if anyone has knowledge of a decent qualified electrician who we can work with. the house can be empty for 6 week spells , I just don’t get the time to do the work myself before I have to go back to work.

    Is this a re-wire though existing gain (conduit) or a complete strip out and replace?

    sorry, not been here for a while.

    it would be a complete rewire, throughout the house there are 20 rooms inc hall and toilets and cellar, then need power to the garage to supply bedsit above and feed the 4 or 5 out buildings…..

    Supposing that the Hager company is not accepting everybody on it’s “greenlist” you could try their search engine. It shows two electricians about 8 km from where the work is waiting, this is their annuaire d’électriens qualifiés. Perhaps Legrand and Schneider provide a similar service.

    The French electrical code explained (in French) by Schneider, to give you an impression of  the equipment needed. Four to five outbuildings – only a few sockets and lights or more? – will add to the complexity of modern French wiring practices. Iron pipes somewhere? Not allowed anymore, replace them, even more work, wall chases, filling, plastering.

    thanks Robert will have a look, we said we will re plaster where needed, the steel pipes in the out buildings will be replaced. as long as I can get a feed out I can do the rest when I need to in the future.

    Wheelers, before doing the rest, have a look at this book. Read the English book recommendation.
