-Welcome to the 2002 04Wal archives.

0:00:200:00:22

-It takes imagination...

0:00:220:00:24

-..to see potential in run-down,

-unloved or tired-looking houses.

0:00:240:00:29

-It takes determination to then

-turn them into amazing homes.

0:00:290:00:34

-We'll visit Glynllifon and Penarth

-a little later.

0:00:340:00:38

-First, we meet Robert Williams

-in London.

0:00:380:00:41

-It was in a terrible condition.

0:01:090:01:11

-The majority of the house,

-within the external walls, is new.

0:01:130:01:17

-It's new from top to bottom.

0:01:170:01:21

-It has been rewired,

-we've added a new water system...

0:01:220:01:26

-..new floors and new ceilings.

0:01:260:01:29

-I bought it with the aim

-of renovating and selling it.

0:01:300:01:35

-I lived here

-while the work was being done...

0:01:360:01:39

-..and I just enjoyed living here.

0:01:390:01:42

-When I chose the colour scheme

-for the house...

0:01:430:01:47

-..the idea was to use colours

-that were easy on the eye.

0:01:470:01:51

-I wanted to relax here

-when I came home from work.

0:01:510:01:56

-Did someone help you

-choose the colours?

0:02:050:02:08

-I was fed up by the time

-that I had to choose the colours!

0:02:080:02:12

-I didn't have time to do it,

-so I enlisted someone to help.

0:02:120:02:17

-We went to various showrooms

-and looked at lots of materials.

0:02:170:02:22

-I knew what I wanted

-and she knew where to get them.

0:02:230:02:28

-She was a great help.

0:02:290:02:30

-Wow!

0:02:390:02:41

-We've walked through

-what looks like a wardrobe.

0:02:420:02:46

-Why did you choose that door?

0:02:460:02:48

-I just wanted

-the whole design to flow.

0:02:490:02:52

-I wanted all the doors

-to look the same.

0:02:530:02:56

-This was the only way

-to make the whole thing work.

0:02:570:03:01

-It tricks the eye.

0:03:020:03:04

-This innovative glass staircase

-allows light to reach the cellar.

0:03:050:03:10

-This handy gadget

-makes life so much easier!

0:03:110:03:14

-This section of the house is new.

0:03:230:03:25

-It was built about three years ago.

0:03:250:03:28

-Planning permission was a struggle,

-but I got what I wanted.

0:03:290:03:33

-It has changed

-the feel of the house.

0:03:340:03:37

-The glass roof has flooded

-this part of the house with light.

0:03:370:03:43

-It has made the house

-feel more spacious.

0:03:440:03:47

-It's a five-storey house...

0:03:520:03:54

-..but I only use this floor

-and the first floor.

0:03:550:03:58

-I'm a single man and I want to move

-closer to the heart of London.

0:03:590:04:04

-I want to be closer to my work

-and to where the action is!

0:04:040:04:08

-Nia Medi met Adrian Jones

-in the first series of 04Wal.

0:04:190:04:23

-She saw his plans to transform

-this terraced house in Penarth.

0:04:230:04:28

-First of all,

-we'll knock this wall down.

0:04:300:04:33

-This wall's going

-and so is this wall.

0:04:340:04:37

-We'll build a conservatory here

-to extend this room.

0:04:390:04:43

-I'll believe it when I see it!

0:04:440:04:46

-I hope you're watching, Nia.

-Seeing is believing!

0:04:470:04:50

-There was a door there.

0:05:030:05:05

-The idea was to see more

-when you walked in...

0:05:060:05:10

-..than you would

-in an ordinary terraced house.

0:05:110:05:15

-That's why I opened it all up.

0:05:150:05:17

-You immediately see the kitchen

-when you enter the house.

0:05:190:05:23

-I raised the level of the floor

-to alter the eyeline.

0:05:240:05:28

-That's why I opened all this up.

0:05:290:05:32

-It means you can see the stairs.

0:05:330:05:35

-Light can now flood the house.

0:05:350:05:37

-Terraced houses

-are normally quite dark.

0:05:380:05:41

-I wanted to be able to walk through

-to the kitchen...

0:05:410:05:45

-..without having to walk

-all the way round.

0:05:450:05:48

-That's why I created this opening

-and it has worked really well.

0:05:500:05:54

-It makes it easy

-to walk around the house.

0:05:550:05:57

-You can see from one end

-of the house to the other.

0:05:580:06:01

-It's very light in here.

0:06:010:06:03

-There was a sink and a toilet

-in the back room.

0:06:060:06:09

-You used to come out here

-to go to the toilet.

0:06:090:06:13

-We knocked down several walls.

0:06:130:06:16

-The back walls had to go.

0:06:160:06:18

-We opened it out.

0:06:190:06:21

-This is the original thickness

-of the back wall.

0:06:210:06:25

-We had to build a sturdy structure

-to prop it up.

0:06:250:06:29

-You're about to sell the house.

0:06:300:06:33

-How will you feel when it's sold

-and the removal men arrive?

0:06:330:06:38

-I won't need removal men -

-I'm selling all the furniture too.

0:06:380:06:44

-I've had the furniture for a while

-and it's time for a change.

0:06:440:06:49

-I've had it for eight years.

0:06:500:06:52

-I'll part with lots of things

-when I part with the house.

0:06:520:06:56

-A clean slate?

0:06:570:06:58

-A clean slate?

-

-Yes, a fresh start.

0:06:580:07:00

-I may move somewhere

-that's more convenient for work.

0:07:000:07:04

-I may even buy another house

-that looks a bit sorry for itself.

0:07:040:07:09

-Who knows? I may buy another house

-that needs cheering up.

0:07:090:07:14

-A mansion, a ruin, a museum

-and an animal sanctuary.

0:07:200:07:24

-Plas Newydd

-has a colourful history.

0:07:240:07:27

-It's no more than you'd expect

-from a house built 350 years ago.

0:07:270:07:31

-Dei and Sheila Roberts

-have lived here for six years.

0:07:320:07:36

-It sounds a bit flat!

0:07:400:07:42

-It sounds a bit flat!

-

-Yes, only one side of it works.

0:07:420:07:44

-That's the problem.

0:07:440:07:46

-Has it been here

-since the house was built?

0:07:470:07:50

-No, we put it there four months ago

-for our son's wedding.

0:07:510:07:56

-It's young compared with the house!

0:07:560:07:58

-It's young compared with the house!

-

-Yes, it's a young baby!

0:07:580:08:00

-The stonework

-is exceptionally smooth.

0:08:010:08:05

-It belonged to a wealthy family.

0:08:050:08:07

-Thomas Glyn was the first person

-to live in Plas Newydd.

0:08:070:08:11

-That was back in 1632.

0:08:110:08:13

-It was an important house

-in those days.

0:08:180:08:21

-These stones give an indication

-that he was a wealthy man.

0:08:220:08:26

-He came from a wealthy family.

0:08:270:08:29

-There are some huge stones

-over here.

0:08:300:08:32

-Yes, the large stones at the bottom

-form the foundation of the house.

0:08:330:08:37

-If you walk around the house...

0:08:400:08:42

-..you can see

-which part they built first.

0:08:430:08:46

-And this was the front door?

0:08:460:08:48

-And this was the front door?

-

-Yes, that's right.

0:08:480:08:50

-People who came to visit

-came to the front door...

0:08:510:08:55

-..and it made them feel important.

0:08:560:08:58

-They walked in and went

-straight into an upstairs room.

0:09:000:09:05

-Dei and Sheila worked as doctors

-in Northamptonshire.

0:09:090:09:13

-When they retired, they moved back

-to Dei's native Lleyn Peninsula.

0:09:140:09:20

-They visited the house

-some years before they bought it.

0:09:220:09:25

-We first came here 15 years ago.

0:09:260:09:29

-It was a restaurant.

0:09:290:09:31

-Wil, my brother, was with us.

0:09:330:09:35

-After the meal, he said

-he'd enjoyed it enormously...

0:09:350:09:40

-..and that he could see

-Sheila and I living here.

0:09:400:09:44

-We didn't think

-we would live here...

0:09:480:09:50

-..but we've been here now

-for six years.

0:09:510:09:55

-What condition was the house in

-when you bought it?

0:09:550:09:59

-It was in a reasonable condition.

0:10:000:10:03

-Having said that,

-it had been mistreated.

0:10:040:10:07

-It had been a wildlife park

-for four or five years.

0:10:080:10:12

-They kept birds in here,

-for example.

0:10:120:10:15

-They kept monkeys

-in one of the rooms upstairs!

0:10:170:10:21

-It hadn't been treated with respect.

0:10:230:10:26

-We're glad that we've brought it

-back to life.

0:10:260:10:29

-It's a happy house.

0:10:290:10:31

0:10:460:10:48

-Welcome back to 2002.

0:10:510:10:52

-Breathing new life into

-old buildings is featured next.

0:10:530:10:57

-Some are older than others.

0:10:570:10:59

-The Harbourmaster Hotel, Aberaeron,

-was given a facelift in 2002.

0:10:590:11:04

-This is how the Harbourmaster

-looked in the last series.

0:11:060:11:11

-Menna Heulyn and Ann Hughes,

-the interior designer...

0:11:120:11:16

-..transformed it

-into a modern hotel and restaurant.

0:11:160:11:20

-This is the new-look Harbourmaster.

0:11:240:11:26

-The rooms, the restaurant

-and the bar area...

0:11:320:11:36

-..have reached the design standard

-that I had hoped to achieve.

0:11:360:11:40

-They're very well designed.

0:11:410:11:43

-I'm really pleased

-with the end result.

0:11:430:11:46

-We had a very honest relationship

-from the word go.

0:11:470:11:51

-We bounce ideas off each other.

0:11:510:11:54

-We had to work within a budget,

-but I think we've been clever.

0:11:540:11:59

-We rarely compromised on anything

-and we achieved high standards.

0:11:590:12:04

-Most of what you see

-is the work of local craftsmen.

0:12:050:12:09

-That's very satisfying.

0:12:090:12:11

-We had to strike the right note.

0:12:120:12:14

-We didn't want to be

-too contemporary.

0:12:150:12:18

-This is a seaside town

-and we had to reflect that.

0:12:180:12:23

-We wanted the hotel

-to be warm and welcoming.

0:12:230:12:27

-That's why we kept

-a lot of traditional features.

0:12:280:12:32

-Elsewhere, there are

-contemporary touches.

0:12:320:12:37

-The two elements work well together.

0:12:370:12:40

-This winding staircase, which leads

-to the bedrooms, is actually listed.

0:12:420:12:48

-The walls are now curved

-to echo the shape of the staircase.

0:12:480:12:53

-Do you like it?

0:12:590:13:00

-Do you like it?

-

-Yes, very much so.

0:13:000:13:02

-The stone is very striking.

0:13:020:13:04

-When the building work started,

-we stripped it back to the shell.

0:13:050:13:10

-That's when we found

-this fantastic stone.

0:13:100:13:14

-Do you like the red carpet?

0:13:150:13:17

-Do you like the red carpet?

-

-Yes! It's really bouncy!

0:13:170:13:19

-We debated this at length!

0:13:190:13:21

-I wanted to introduce warmth

-to the room and I think it works.

0:13:220:13:26

-Menna is very fond

-of strong colours.

0:13:260:13:29

-Each room is unique,

-but they are linked...

0:13:350:13:40

-..by themes in colours

-and materials.

0:13:410:13:43

-Yes, the theme runs right through

-to the restaurant.

0:13:440:13:48

-Each design is different.

-I hope I've met Menna's needs.

0:13:480:13:55

-The hotel reflects Menna

-and Glyn's characters, so I'm happy.

0:13:550:14:01

-Greg Stevenson built an extension

-to his thatched cottage a year ago.

0:14:080:14:13

-This is how the house looks today.

0:14:150:14:18

-It has come together wonderfully.

0:14:210:14:23

-Yes, the thatched roof

-and structural work are complete.

0:14:250:14:30

-Is this whitewash?

0:14:300:14:32

-Is this whitewash?

-

-Yes.

0:14:320:14:33

-I decided to whitewash

-the rear of the house.

0:14:330:14:36

-I have to render the gable end

-because it faces the elements.

0:14:370:14:41

-That's whitewash.

0:14:420:14:43

-If water gets into the walls,

-it's important that it can escape.

0:14:440:14:49

-I could paint it red,

-like Kennixton cottage in St Fagans.

0:14:490:14:53

-The chimney's red.

0:14:540:14:55

-Are you happy with the thatch?

0:14:560:14:58

-Yes, but it took nine months!

0:14:580:15:00

-We're behind schedule,

-but I'm happy with it.

0:15:000:15:04

-Lots of people stop

-and take photos of it!

0:15:040:15:07

-Is that the unique design

-to this area on the ridge?

0:15:080:15:11

-Yes, that's right.

0:15:120:15:13

-Thatch chimneys are also a part

-of this area's tradition.

0:15:130:15:17

-This is the only one left,

-so I'm happy to have it.

0:15:170:15:21

-Has there been much interest

-since we filmed the first item?

0:15:220:15:27

-Yes, too much! I was surprised.

0:15:280:15:30

-Everyone in Wales watches 04Wal

-and lots of people stopped here.

0:15:300:15:35

-People knocked on my door

-and asked to see it all the time!

0:15:360:15:40

-Some people wanted to sleep

-under a thatched roof...

0:15:400:15:44

-..so I decided to set up a website

-and convert the place.

0:15:450:15:49

-I'll let it to people

-who want to stay here.

0:15:490:15:52

-This looks exactly the same

-as the inside of the main house.

0:15:590:16:03

-There's less soot in here though!

0:16:040:16:07

-This roof is new.

0:16:070:16:08

-The couples are original. The oak

-and the purlins are original too.

0:16:090:16:14

-I put a wood burner in.

0:16:170:16:18

-It's not safe to have an open fire

-in a thatched cottage!

0:16:190:16:23

-I fitted a Metalbestos pipe

-in the old chimney to make it safe.

0:16:250:16:30

-The front door will be here,

-with a small kitchen here.

0:16:300:16:35

-There will be panels here

-and the lounge will be over there.

0:16:360:16:40

-There will be glass doors there

-and this will be the bathroom.

0:16:410:16:45

-The people will sleep up here,

-right under the thatched roof.

0:16:460:16:50

-I'm desperately seeking

-Welsh oak furniture.

0:16:530:16:57

-I have to find furniture

-that suits the place.

0:16:580:17:01

-I enjoy buying furniture

-and doing the interior.

0:17:020:17:06

-A castle, a church,

-a pub and a beach.

0:17:130:17:15

-You can almost see Dylan Thomas's

-characters roaming Llanstephan.

0:17:160:17:20

-Did this magical atmosphere

-attract Osi and Hilary Osmond?

0:17:220:17:27

-We're close to the sea

-and close to Carmarthen.

0:17:280:17:32

-Places like this are rare.

0:17:320:17:35

-It's a small, friendly village.

0:17:350:17:37

-It's a small, friendly village.

-

-Tell him the truth, Hil!

0:17:370:17:39

-Tell him why we moved

-to Llanstephan.

0:17:390:17:42

-When Hilary and I

-were romancing each other...

0:17:420:17:46

-..we always met in Llanstephan.

0:17:460:17:48

-It was very close to my work.

0:17:490:17:51

-We went down to the beach

-at lunchtime.

0:17:540:17:57

-That's the truth!

0:17:580:18:00

-Romance attracted us here!

0:18:010:18:03

-Our romance blossomed

-in Llanstephan.

0:18:040:18:07

-On the beach.

0:18:080:18:10

-When we decided

-to build a life together...

0:18:100:18:13

-..we looked for a home

-in Llanstephan.

0:18:140:18:17

-Why this house in particular?

-Was it the only one on the market?

0:18:200:18:24

-No, we saw other properties.

-We didn't view this one for ages.

0:18:240:18:29

-It looked tiny from the outside.

0:18:290:18:32

-When we saw it,

-we realized it was like the Tardis.

0:18:320:18:35

-There are rooms upon rooms here.

0:18:360:18:39

-We fell in love with it.

0:18:410:18:43

-It used to be a chemist's shop

-and a sweet shop as well.

0:18:430:18:48

-It was also once a butcher's shop...

0:18:480:18:51

-..and a general store too.

0:18:520:18:54

-Some items from the chemist's shop

-are still here.

0:18:540:18:59

-belonged to the chemist.

0:18:590:19:04

-There's an enormous Aga

-in the kitchen.

0:19:040:19:07

-People usually put the Rayburn

-on the floor...

0:19:080:19:11

-..but it was too low, so I decided

-to raise it on some blocks.

0:19:110:19:15

-It's now at work surface level.

0:19:160:19:18

-Rayburns are usually too low,

-so I built the cupboards around it.

0:19:210:19:26

-I wanted to create a huge range.

0:19:260:19:28

-It's bordering on being

-a fascist range!

0:19:290:19:32

-What's the Spanish term?

0:19:320:19:34

-It's a Castilian range!

0:19:340:19:36

-I'm a stainless steel fanatic!

-A real Doctor Mengele!

0:19:390:19:43

-I find it hard not to buy things

-from the kitchen shop in Llandeilo.

0:19:450:19:51

-I've bought every stainless steel

-gadget in the shop!

0:19:530:19:57

-Yes, I've bought the lot!

0:19:580:20:00

-We don't have a good juicer.

0:20:010:20:03

-We also need a pot

-to cook polenta.

0:20:040:20:07

-Yes, that would

-make our lives complete.

0:20:070:20:10

-We only need two things.

0:20:100:20:12

-We'll head for the kitchen shop!

0:20:130:20:15

-Osi made the ladder

-from wood he found on the beach.

0:20:180:20:22

-He has nearly finished

-building a new kitchen roof.

0:20:230:20:28

-The plastic

-is about to be replaced by glass.

0:20:280:20:31

-I want to create an English

-cricket pavilion or a beach hut.

0:20:310:20:35

-I like the style.

0:20:360:20:37

-I want something plain

-yet traditional...

0:20:380:20:41

-..with a smattering of modernism.

0:20:420:20:44

-I think it works quite well.

0:20:470:20:49

-Have you noticed

-the water features?

0:20:500:20:53

-You could pop some goldfish

-in there!

0:20:550:20:58

-No, it would be rude

-to look up at a goldfish.

0:20:580:21:01

-You can look up at birds

-but not at goldfish!

0:21:020:21:05

-The work of many friends

-cover the walls.

0:21:300:21:33

-Terry Jones, Peter Davidson

-and Brian Jones, among others.

0:21:340:21:39

-Most of the work belongs to Osi.

0:21:390:21:41

-You use this room most

-to teach the piano.

0:21:420:21:46

-How do they react when they see

-all the art on the walls?

0:21:460:21:50

-They love it. They notice

-when a new picture goes up.

0:21:500:21:54

-They like some, they dislike others

-and they notice the horse.

0:21:540:21:59

-Why do you hang

-so much of your work?

0:21:590:22:03

-Some people don't show their work

-in their home, but I like to.

0:22:030:22:08

-I like to look at my work

-and think about it.

0:22:090:22:12

-I decide what to do next

-by looking at my work. I enjoy it.
