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.

Time is flying by

It is amazing that it is 1st March today, and that so much has been done in the farmhouse since January.

The electrician has already put a lot of wires and lights in, the plumbers have started putting pipes in and a lot of plastering has been done.  We had trenches dug for water and electric outside.  The outer doorway for the hot tub room has been knocked through, and now being rebuilt to put the patio doors in.

Here are some photos from Wednesday and Thursday.

Looking through the hot tub room from outside -
the room beyond will have the downstairs
shower room in it

Stone and scaffolding

This is where the patio doors for the
hot tub room will be


  1. wow!
    Won't the hot tub room be nice? I will be jealous LOL

  2. Are you keeping the old outside loo? That's cool to me.

  3. A lot has been done since you last posted.

    Now what are you going to turn the old outside loo into? :) Oh and where is the swimming pool going? LOL


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