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!

Meanwhile, inside the barn the ceiling is starting to take shape and wires are appearing everywhere.

Bernard and Ro's gazebo is surrounded by what looks like a battleground as the waste pipes from them and us are channelled through to a waiting Kev.

Flat out

The concrete slab is down. It's changed the whole atmosphere of the place, it suddenly has a solid feel, rather than ramshackle. The electrician and joiner are meeting H today on site. The plans have been drawn for the electrics. We want cat 5 in all rooms and are going to ask Steve if he can help with the drawings. All this and England are through to the knock-out stages.

The lighting is starting to take shape. Up above Brian, where the trusses meet the wall, will be a series of spotlights. There will also be drop lights in between the main beams, but we have yet to decide on what form they will take. Upstairs hidden fluorescent tubes along the bottom edge of the roof will give up and down lighting. There will also be drop lights from every other beam.
