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 late weekend update

We were away with the caravan this weekend, so didn't take my usual weekly update photos until yesterday evening.

So much has happened - and we have to choose bathroom tiles this week (you would think this would be simple, but unless you have an unlimited budget it is actually very difficult - I always choose the more expensive ones!).

The proper floor levels will be going in within the next fortnight, so then the underfloor heating downstairs can be installed.

Here are the photos - internal and external.

My craft room - ceiling put back in and walls plastered.

The rooms above the kitchen - shower room on right, craft room directly
in front, and spare room next to it on the left.

The upstairs laundry room - with airing cupboard
going in.

The hot tub room - with shower room
on the right.

The kitchen - with water pipes going over to the island

Another view of the kitchen - showing the window seat and the
internal porch.

The mini digger has returned (as the weather has been so dry) and lots of
digging going on outside.  The back of the house is having the concrete covering
stripped from it, but will be covered up again (stone is not good enough to be
left exposed).


  1. Ali...I too have the talent of being able to pick the most expensive of anything (ha). Everything looks like its progressing nicely. Again, love following along.

  2. Glad you got away for the weekend.

    Have you any idea what colours you want the tiles? You could always buy the cheaper ones, but then add in some of the more expensive ones.


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