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!

Scaffolding is gone inside and the floor is ready to be finished in the kitchen/diner. The housing for the water pump is on the left wall. Apologies for those expecting dramatic pix - see previous entry - this was best I could do between oiling doorstops and running around salvage yards yesterday.

Pete with the water supply tank. At last the battlefield out the back could return to being an oasis of greenery and beauty...

Richard sprays the walls with water before applying the last of 10 - count 'em - coats of plaster. This place will be bomb-proof.

First floor is down - it's engineered oak and looks pretty gorgeous. Hope it stays that way now that Matt the decorator is in..! The builders are still here and plastering downstairs. Nearly done on the ceiling, The decorators are upstairs wiping mould off the ceiling from the dampness - gallons of water from the screed and plastering.
