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.

More tiling, underfloor heating and carpet samples ....

The underfloor heating was turned on yesterday, and this morning when Mark the Builder went into the kitchen he nearly passed out from the heat!  All of the windows and doors have been open today, and still the house felt warm when we went in at 5 pm.  We are not going to need to have it turned up very high on the thermostat!

More floor tiling completed upstairs and the first of the wall tiles went up in the main bathroom.

We came home yesterday with a carboot full of carpet samples - and spent some time this evening carrying them around the rooms to see what suited where.  We have 2 companies coming to measure up and quote on Saturday and Monday, so it will all be finalised next week.

We have also got some paint sample pots (Dulux - 3 for £1 in Homebase at the moment - normally £1.59 each) and put test patches in various rooms.  Apart from one that was a lot more green than it looked on the colour chart, they were all realistic and we are pretty much there on making the final decisions. 

The kitchen and utility area units are all ordered - and will be here week commencing 17th June.

We hope to have the hot tub installed by the beginning of June.

So much happening - and such a short time now before we move in - I must get on and do some more packing/sorting/taking stuff to the charity shop.
