Works starts on Mistletoe Cottage

The work has started! The stable block building is now demolished and we are at the point of no return, and the view from William’s parents’ front door is a much bigger vista than it was at the end of August.

Jenkinson’s Team are working quickly, cleanly and tidily, and William’s Dad, Gwilym, is keeping a close eye on standards and their progress.

Co-ordinating the utility companies has been quite a challenge, but with Toby from Jenkinsons bringing the work together, the poles are down, trenches are dug, and it appears as though we will have water and electricity with which to function.

The rubble from the building is to be used as a hardcore base for the driveway at the front of the house, and that too, has been dug out, to be level with the road, for easy access.

Next step – foundations and water treatment plants. As an almost completely eco-house, we’ll bring you more information on that as the work develops.

Centrally placed for Hay-on-Wye, Leominster, Ludlow, Hereford and the surrounding market towns, it really is a beautiful part of the world.
