I think taking the first step into the unknown is the hardest. Totally reliant on the knowledge (and honesty) of others, isn’t always easy.
Doubt and more doubt then the reality that nothing changes unless you take the plunge, so head first I went!
First and foremost was to make use of the now redundant stone farm buildings. One was a log store (with the inglenook) but the other two had remained unused for many years and with glorious views towards Snowdonia, they seemed the natural starting point.
Plans drawn, the next stage would be negotiating the minefield of planning applications and all the stress and strains that such bureaucracy entails.
Too many weeks later plans are approved and we have lift off.!
