Work starts on the Barn

The barn is a farm building the first floor of which had been converted into an office by the previous owners.  The ground floor was used as a wood store and cow toilet.  We are now transforming the building into a warm, comfortable and luxurious holiday cottage.
Our friendly farmer helped us again with the ground works.  Using his digger and pecker he relocated the flowerbed, dug the footings for the extension which will house the new staircase and entrance, pecked a trench to house the pipes and cabling for the biomass boiler and dug out the floor of the barn.

Gwyn arrived just before Christmas the shore up the stone walls.  He loved doing this in near freezing temperatures and with a horrible cold.  Sorry Gwyn.
