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.

It is starting to look like a house again

So much progress, both inside and out.

Boarding starting to go up, with insulation in the ceilings.  The electrician has wires and electrical points all over the place.  There are drainage pipes for the upstairs bathrooms going in.  Work done on the external walls.  The patio doors for the kitchen have arrived.

We have been looking more at kitchens, bathrooms and flooring (wood and tiles).  We also have to choose handles for the internal doors.

The possible move-in date of June or July does seem realistic now - but perhaps I shouldn't say that!

The kitchen with boarding on walls/ceiling, and patio doors waiting to be installed.  It is still the carpenter's workshop for now!
