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!

25 January and the first foor is no more. Pix to follow asap. It looks amazing, The whole beautiful barn revealed in all its glory - cracks and all. Plenty of firewood, from the beams, for the winter too. BT called to put in phone.

And their skips

The rubble from the ground floor starts filling the skip and there's much more to come. Noel has kindly offered to ship some away in his trailor. The concrete ground floor will take some hard graft to get through.

The builders are in and their vans have come along too

It's Tuesday 24 January 2006 and the builders are in, with their loo! It's been a long haul, but at last we are on the final stretch. The weather has been fantastic today, cold, but sunny and the garden is a sun-trap. All in marked contrast to the forecasts of the big freeze.

Our first building project in the foreground

Well, it was the least I could do for M 'n' M.

It was a bright sunny day when this picture was taken, but the barns do get a surprisingly high amount of sun considering their relatively secluded position.

We have sat on the steps on the right hand side and enjoyed the warmth.
