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.

Lots of progress

So much is happening in the farmhouse now.  Floors that have been removed, are being replaced.  Walls taken down, and then new walls going up. 

The electrician arrived and has started putting cables in.

We are busy sorting out the kitchen design, and starting to plan out the bathrooms.

Some changes were made to the layout - with a wall that was meant to go between the hot tub room and the adjoining room not being put in, when we realised it would be a much nicer space as one.  The two front bedrooms have been swapped round - the other room has better views from the window, so that is now our bedroom (the other will be our dressing room) - and the bathroom in the middle is now 'Jack and Jill', so we don't have to walk out onto the landing to get from there into the dressing room.

My craft room has been made bigger - incorporating a space that was previously just part of the corridor.

It is a very busy building site - with at least 4 men on site at all times, often a lot more when the plasterers/carpenter/electricians are there.

The plumbers will be here next week - starting to install the underfloor heating and the rest of the plumbing.

Fantastic to see so much progress.  We can almost imagine living there now!

This will be the upstairs shower room

My craft room!

The laundry room

Sorry for the blur - it was so cold this
morning, my hands must have been shaking!
