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 here!!

Lots of photos to show the process of getting it into the room (a lot of men and muscles!), wired upto the electric, filled and running.

It was lucky that Trigger the Electrician was onsite, as he had to spend a lot of time (much of this lying on the floor!) wiring it in - and this included a phone call to the Jacuzzi Technical 'Man in the UK'.

It took about an hour for it to be filled (we only had one hose) - but that worked out perfectly, as we were then ready to do the first water testing/adding chlorine/PH adjuster and some explanations of the very fancy control panel (and we get a floating remote control!).  It has been left for the rest of the day heating up - and when I checked it at around 8 pm it was nearly upto the temperature I like (hot!).

The colours we chose look fab with the floor tiles and paint colour.

Thank you so much to Malcolm from Powerpools, Carmarthen (who are also John Deere garden machinery dealers) - and Paul, who dealt with our order whilst Malcolm was on holiday.

As so many Jacuzzi owners will say, this will really make a difference to our lives - and I am looking forward to making it part of my daily routine.

..... and lift.
... and push.

Almost there.

Front panels off, so wiring could be connected. 

Being filled.

My favourite feature - the waterfall with changing lights.

Up and running.

Nice and tidy with its cover on.

The view outside.

  1. When I saw an earlier post about the installation of those doors, I was excited to see what the view from inside would look like once the hot tub was in. Now that I've seen it, I have to say that it was a great choice to go with the double doors. Even if the area is yet to be finished, I can tell that the doors could help create a very intimate and relaxing atmosphere.
