What is this all about?

Lower Tancredston Farmhouse is the main 'residence' for the Wade family in Tancredston, Hayscastle, Pembrokeshire. It has been empty for over 2 years and finally a builder has been selected (Mark Roberts) for the entire renovation project. This blog is the story (with photos) of the renovation.

A Saturday update (updated with a photo)

Sorry, no photos today, as a man has been into the house to spray the woodwork (to prevent pests. rot etc in the future) and we are not allowed in until tomorrow.  Then, we have to finish clearing it out - plus the 2 outside rooms.  We also have to draw on a plan where we want the electric sockets/light switches/tv points etc - and what type.  Homework from the builder!!

Kitchen and bathroom designs.  We have another company coming to prepare designs/quotes next week.  Not particularly impressed with the first company (slow coming back to us and ignored our particular requirements for the kitchen) and always useful to have another quote.

Lots has been done this week - with the opening for the patio doors in the kitchen finished, most of the internal walls upstairs stripped out and the plasterers have been there every day doing what plasterers do!

Will take photos tomorrow.

Didn't get inside the house today (too busy
on the farm), but this shows the new 'patio
doors' to the kitchen from the outside.


  1. Just got caught up with your posts. Kept forgetting to come over from your crafting blog.

  2. progress one brick at a time. Will you be leaving this portion slightly "distressed" so that some of the brick shows? It looks so romantic.


Thank you for your wonderful comments. I read and treasure them all.
