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.

Patio Doors ....

The patio doors for the hot tub room were put in yesterday - and they are fitting the glass now.

We had to decide where radiators were being fitted upstairs, how the ceilings in the older rooms above the kitchen would be finished (leaving some of the old beams exposed), how the airing cupboard in the laundry room would be configured to leave space for the tumble drier and the position of the door through to the hot tub room from the hall.  So many decisions!

Lots going on in the house - with lots of different trades working alongside each other.  The living room window was open, as it is sunny and dry here - thought this was a nice picture -


  1. I didn't even know that radiators were installed in new structures these days - guess it is the difference in locales. Have they given you any type of "completion date" yet, or is it just something you are slowly doing until it is finally done? Thanks for sharing your journey. hugs, de

  2. When do you hope to be in?

  3. Progress looks great. I received your thank you card, Ali. So pretty.

  4. These look great! I really need to get new patio doors in Phoenix, AZ... Any suggestions on where I might go for that?


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