We couldn't interest Kevin McCloud in our barn conversion, so we went one better, a blog. You can follow our progress as we turn what was the kitchen of a medieval grange in south Devon into a home for a family of four. I will attempt to answer any questions, so write away!

We think we've found what would have been decorating stone for this doorway. This pic doesn't really do it credit, but the rubble is in the way on the outside.

The bills are coming in thick and fast - the architect's fee (£1,370.99), the lender's valuation fee (£420), and the building inspection fees (£1,130).

The first floor is gone and the builders have to set too, fixing a large crack in the eastern wall. The bathroom on the ground floor looks tiny. The entire place has taken on a cast cathedral-like vibe, which is appropriate because all information seems to indicate it was once a chapel. And we found a bit of pillar.
