Did you bring your hard hat? Good, pop it on and I'll take you for a quick tour round the bunkhouse and show you what we've been up to these past couple of weeks. Hope you brought plenty of imagination as well.
We'll go in this door, just mind the skips.
That's it, watch out for the cement mixer as you come in.
We've come in to what will be our open plan kitchen/living/dining room. Stand with your back to the mixer, mind you don't get mucky though, that's it. What you're now looking at is part of the area where our kitchen will be, minus the toilets of course.
Take a turn to the right and go up the step and you're in what will be the walk-in larder, currently home to three delightful showers. I did say that you'll need a good imagination!
Back down now into the toilet/kitchen, turn to your left and you're in the future living room.
As you can see the builders have had to hack off all the plaster due to the rising wet dry rot that we had but in doing so the original walls have been exposed. These are extremely solid, thick stone walls which have stood the test of time from when it was originally built as stables. Also notice that the doorway has been narrowed in the past, infilled with bricks. If we go through this door we'll come into a small room which will be our office, but I do need to get a comfier chair.
Passing on through here we come to what will be the bedroom.
The far left hand corner where the poles currently are will be our en-suite
and the corner with the scaffolding will be our walk-in wardrobe.
If we all turn round now with our back to the wardrobe/ensuite you'll see that this room has two external doors, both are down to be removed. This wall has been re-built in the past and is much thinner than the original walls.
Well that's all there is to see in here, we'll turn round and make our way back out through the bedroom.
Through the study and out into the living room.
Make your way past the cement mixer in the kitchen, turn left and out through the door.
Take a big deep breath of fresh air and admire the view of the mighty Mynydd Mawr through the trees.
Hope you enjoyed your visit to the bunkhouse, there'll be another guided tour when there's something new and of interest to see. Don't forget your hard hat.
