The house that Kath and Roger built

Enfin, after a couple of years of work, the first of our 2 barn conversions is complete! The second is just days from completion too…roll on the lazy days of summer… As our first guests arrive in 2 days time it is just as well we’ve finished. Anyway, here are a few snaps of the result..

I looked back at some of the pre-work photos today and it is so easy to forget quite what the place looked like when we arrived here. As we are both novices at this kind of thing we had no idea really what we were taking on (good job really), but there has never been a moment of regret and for the most part it has been a fantastic experience. Now that we have honed our skills on 2 houses, we’re quite keen to have a go at something else…an eco-house maybe? Might just have a few months off, get the bikes out a bit more, head off to the golf course and enjoy the summer!
