Barn Conversion near Tregony

Posted by Iona Manley & Steve Slade on October 18, 2012 at 4:45 AM Comments comments (23)

Steve spent most of the last few months working on the exterior of a lovely barn conversion near Tregony. He was most fascinated by the migration of the swallows! Watching them leave their home in one of the outbuildings for warmer climes. 

I meanwhile, took some time off and spent the holidays mucking about on the beach with our two young boys, (who are getting far too brave in the water these days!)

And recently, I've been pre-occupied with a new addition to the family! We'...

Flushing finished & a few other jobs too!

5 bed house in Flushing, nr Falmouth

Well the Crantock house didn't happen. Sadly it was condemned with mundic block..... Such a great property but beyond economical repair.

We then went on to work on the Doc Martin set again with friends of ours. Great fun to paint really badly (required) and to do a few effects!! 

We then did the Findus Youngs Fish n Chips, Fishermen's Friends, advert in Port Issac - the inside of a boat, in the inside the RNLI office. The closing shot featured Steve's hand...

Blimey - that was easy! Website creation in a couple of days via - should have done this years ago! Still have to find and upload more photos - and add more past clients but am pretty chuffed that I've got the bulk of the site done so quickly!

EGD Renovations is up and running again full steam ahead now that our youngest has started big school. 

Steve went it alone for a few years whilst our two boys were babies - concentrating mainly on sash window renovation an...
