-Tonight, a traditional cottage

-in Rhostryfan...

0:00:200:00:25

-..a chapel in the Beacons which is

-being converted into a home...

0:00:250:00:30

-..and, first, a luxury flat

-which overlooks Langland Bay.

0:00:300:00:35

-Welcome to 04Wal.

0:00:350:00:37

-This is the story of husband

-and wife, Jan and Howard Clarke.

0:00:430:00:47

-They owned neighbouring flats

-overlooking Langland Bay...

0:00:470:00:51

-..and they fell in love.

0:00:520:00:53

-Howard is an architect and he bought

-the freehold rights to the block.

0:00:550:01:00

-Living in a flat overlooking the bay

-was romantic, when it was sunny...

0:01:000:01:05

-..but the building's flat roof

-leaked in the rain.

0:01:050:01:09

-Erecting a sloping roof

-was expensive.

0:01:090:01:12

-To make the project feasible...

0:01:120:01:15

-..he built a penthouse for

-him and his wife, at the same time.

0:01:150:01:19

-After a seven-year battle with the

-council for planning permission...

0:01:210:01:26

-..he built a luxury flat

-with a waterproof roof!

0:01:260:01:30

-We rarely visit a home

-which has its own private lift.

0:01:390:01:42

-Building a penthouse while the other

-residents still lived beneath it...

0:01:530:01:58

-..was quite a feat.

0:01:580:02:00

-The work took 18 months

-but the result is very striking.

0:02:000:02:05

-Few properties in Wales enjoy

-more natural light than this flat.

0:02:240:02:29

-There's a good reason for that.

0:02:310:02:33

-There are huge windows

-in all the main rooms of the flat...

0:02:330:02:37

-..and they let light flood in.

0:02:370:02:39

-I wouldn't need an electric light to

-read in here at 10pm in the winter.

0:02:400:02:45

-The colour of this classical room

-adds to its light feeling.

0:02:460:02:51

-There are hardly any colours

-in this flat, other than cream.

0:02:510:02:56

-This is the master bedroom.

0:03:190:03:21

-It's the only room

-they use as a bedroom.

0:03:210:03:24

-There's a long window here, leading

-to a balcony overlooking the bay.

0:03:240:03:30

-Like the rest of the house, there

-are no square corners in this room.

0:03:320:03:37

-The angles

-draw us to this side of the room.

0:03:370:03:40

-This is an enormous bed

-and it has a suede headboard.

0:03:400:03:44

-It's a four-poster bed.

0:03:440:03:46

-The en-suite is over here.

0:03:460:03:48

-The term 'en suite'

-doesn't do this room justice.

0:03:500:03:54

-It's enormous and it's

-full of interesting objects.

0:03:540:03:58

-"What's that? Is it another room?"

-I hear you ask.

0:03:580:04:02

-Yes, but it's also a shower!

0:04:030:04:05

-The door is surrounded

-by magazines and books.

0:04:050:04:08

-There's a gigantic bath over here.

0:04:160:04:19

-The air is filled

-with wonderful aromas.

0:04:190:04:22

-There's a huge mirror over here and

-the ceiling height is astounding.

0:04:220:04:27

-It's very rare in a bathroom.

0:04:270:04:29

-This is the piece de resistance.

0:04:290:04:32

-A luxurious armchair

-covered in a towelling material.

0:04:320:04:37

-You can jump out of the bath

-and into the chair...

0:04:390:04:42

-..reach for a magazine,

-put your feet up...

0:04:420:04:45

-..and give the teddy bear a cuddle.

0:04:460:04:48

-It's massive.

0:04:480:04:50

-It's huge!

0:04:500:04:51

-The bedroom is a symphony of cream

-and colours which complement cream.

0:04:530:04:58

-This is a comfortable chaise longue.

0:04:580:05:01

-You can lie there and read

-'Country Life', bathed in sunshine.

0:05:010:05:05

-You can write letters at this desk,

-just as they did in the old days.

0:05:050:05:10

-People spent much more time

-in their bedrooms, in days gone by.

0:05:110:05:15

-There's plenty of room for hats

-up there...

0:05:150:05:18

-..and there's plenty of room

-in the wardrobes.

0:05:180:05:22

-If you think there was enough room

-for all your clothes in there...

0:05:240:05:28

-..you'd be wrong!

0:05:280:05:30

-This is

-the Imelda Marcos collection!

0:05:300:05:33

-There's a pair of shoes

-for every day of the month in here.

0:05:370:05:41

-That's astonishing!

0:05:420:05:44

-This is the second bedroom.

0:06:220:06:24

-It isn't used as a bedroom.

0:06:250:06:27

-This is a second lounge, in essence.

0:06:270:06:30

-The items in this room reflect the

-taste and interests of the owners.

0:06:300:06:35

-There are lots of pictures in here.

0:06:350:06:38

-They're art lovers.

0:06:380:06:39

-There are pieces by local artists.

0:06:400:06:42

-These two painting of the Gower

-are the work of Will Evans.

0:06:420:06:47

-I think every travel guide

-ever published is on that shelf!

0:06:480:06:52

-What colour is this room?

0:06:530:06:55

-Well, I'd say

-it was a shade of cream.

0:06:550:06:58

-The great cream tour

-comes to an end right here.

0:07:130:07:16

-Isn't it wonderful?

0:07:190:07:21

-Having converted an old mill

-into a house...

0:07:340:07:37

-..John Couch

-was bitten by the renovation bug.

0:07:370:07:41

-He has bought Seion chapel

-and he plans to turn it into a home.

0:07:410:07:45

-He does the work himself and some

-people don't share his enthusiasm.

0:07:450:07:51

-Some people think I'm crazy and they

-think this project's too big for me.

0:07:520:07:58

-Someone said

-he didn't think I could finish it.

0:07:590:08:03

-It's a chapel. Does that bother you?

0:08:050:08:07

-No, not at all.

0:08:070:08:09

-It's an added attraction.

0:08:090:08:11

-It's a beautiful building.

0:08:120:08:14

-Tell me about its history.

0:08:200:08:21

-Hywel Harris was in this area

-during the Reformation...

0:08:220:08:26

-..and he established a Wesleyan

-Methodist Society in Llansadwrn.

0:08:260:08:31

-Work commenced on this building

-in 1797.

0:08:310:08:36

-That was years before

-the Reformation.

0:08:370:08:40

-I see the project as a job.

0:08:470:08:49

-I start work

-at 9 o'clock in the morning...

0:08:490:08:53

-..and I finish work

-at five o'clock in the evening.

0:08:540:08:57

-Where has this door led us?

0:08:580:08:59

-There are two doors - one there

-and one on the opposite side.

0:09:000:09:04

-The pulpit was in the middle.

0:09:040:09:06

-The 'set fawr' was here.

0:09:060:09:08

-I'm standing in the 'set fawr'!

0:09:080:09:11

-Yes - the elders sat here,

-facing the preacher.

0:09:110:09:14

-Have you raised the floor level?

0:09:150:09:17

-Yes, I raised it about a yard.

0:09:170:09:19

-I did it to ensure the ground floor

-windows are in the right position.

0:09:200:09:25

-We want to be able to see out,

-through the windows!

0:09:280:09:31

-Chapel windows were high to stop

-people gazing out through them!

0:09:320:09:36

-We must move with the times...

0:09:500:09:52

-..and give the building

-a new purpose.

0:09:530:09:57

-I want to preserve as much of the

-building as possible...

0:09:590:10:03

-..but I must adapt it

-to modern life.

0:10:040:10:07

-This stained glass is wonderful.

0:10:070:10:10

-Did you find suppliers easily?

0:10:100:10:12

-No, it took a year to find a company

-who manufactured that pattern.

0:10:130:10:17

-It's a Gothic cross.

0:10:180:10:19

-The kitchen will be here

-won't it, John?

0:10:260:10:29

-Yes, that's right.

0:10:290:10:31

-It's a large room.

0:10:320:10:33

-It's a large room.

-

-Yes, that's right.

0:10:330:10:35

-The units will be over here.

0:10:350:10:37

-They'll be against that wall.

0:10:370:10:39

-Will you have

-a dining table in here?

0:10:400:10:43

-Yes, the dining table

-will go over here.

0:10:440:10:46

-We'll look out of the window

-as we eat.

0:10:470:10:50

-Up we go to the first floor,

-past the lovely windows.

0:11:030:11:06

-Light floods in through here

-and it's wonderful.

0:11:070:11:11

-This is the bathroom.

0:11:110:11:12

-The original ceiling is still here,

-on the landing.

0:11:150:11:19

-This is the opening created by John.

0:11:190:11:21

-We'll go up there in a minute.

0:11:220:11:24

-All the rooms on this floor

-have wood on the ceilings.

0:11:240:11:28

-It's the old chapel ceiling,

-of course.

0:11:280:11:31

-I've never stood this close to

-a chapel's ceiling in my life!

0:11:340:11:38

-The third floor is over here.

0:11:380:11:40

-This floor is higher than

-the chapel's original ceiling.

0:11:420:11:47

-We're getting even closer to God

-and even closer to Heaven!

0:11:470:11:51

-There are two large rooms up here.

0:11:520:11:54

-This room

-is half the size of the chapel.

0:11:540:11:58

-There are windows

-on both sides of this room.

0:11:590:12:02

-You can see the mountain on one side

-and Talley on the other.

0:12:030:12:07

-I'm not a huge fan

-of open-plan living.

0:12:070:12:11

-It isn't practical for families

-because privacy is important.

0:12:120:12:17

-There are only two of you.

0:12:170:12:19

-There are only two of you.

-

-We'll see!

0:12:190:12:21

-How many rooms are there,

-in this house?

0:12:220:12:25

-There are five bedrooms.

0:12:250:12:27

-We have three daughters and they'll

-visit us, especially at Christmas.

0:12:270:12:32

-The question most people ask me is,

-"When will it be finished?"

0:12:340:12:38

-It's like Michelangelo

-when he painted the Sistine Chapel.

0:12:390:12:43

-The Pope kept asking

-when he'd finish.

0:12:430:12:46

-Sometime next year, hopefully.

0:12:470:12:49

-Will you finish this

-and move on to another property?

0:12:500:12:54

-We'll see.

0:12:540:12:55

-I think it's in your blood.

0:12:560:12:57

-I think it's in your blood.

-

-You may be right.

0:12:570:12:58

0:13:130:13:13

0:13:130:13:15

-I scoured the area in search

-of something suitable for us.

0:13:210:13:25

-The view struck us, didn't it?

0:13:260:13:29

-The first thing that struck us when

-we came down here at night...

0:13:310:13:35

-..was the view.

0:13:350:13:37

-Elinor Gwynn, Richard Farmer

-and Steffan, their son...

0:13:430:13:47

-..we thrilled to find Cae Coch,

-Rhostryfan.

0:13:470:13:50

-They fell in love

-with the cottage...

0:13:510:13:53

-..and its location is also

-close to their hearts.

0:13:540:13:57

-Walking and the open air

-is our passion and our work.

0:13:580:14:02

-Nothing gives you more pleasure than

-seeing nature on your own doorstep.

0:14:020:14:07

-This cottage was typical

-of all the houses of its era.

0:14:100:14:14

-It had one large room

-and two small rooms.

0:14:160:14:18

-A ladder led from the ground floor

-to the bedrooms.

0:14:190:14:22

-The cottage's previous owners...

0:14:290:14:31

-..added extensions

-to the side and to the rear.

0:14:310:14:35

-It still looks like a stone cottage,

-from the front.

0:14:360:14:39

-It's like the Tardis -

-there are lots of small rooms here.

0:14:410:14:45

-It was great

-to be able to do different things...

0:14:450:14:48

-..with all the different spaces.

0:14:490:14:51

-I think the extensions

-are a triumph.

0:14:530:14:56

-They could easily have turned out

-to be small, dark extensions.

0:14:570:15:02

-There are 13 different shades

-of white in this house?

0:15:020:15:06

-Yes, something like that.

0:15:070:15:09

-I'm not sure why we used

-so many different shades of white.

0:15:090:15:13

-Some of them have a hint of pink

-and some have a hint of yellow.

0:15:130:15:18

-They're all different.

0:15:180:15:20

-Minutely different!

0:15:210:15:22

-I'm not convinced about that!

0:15:220:15:25

-We're now leaving

-the old part of the house.

0:15:450:15:48

-This is the old external wall.

0:15:480:15:50

-The house now forms

-a kind of T-shape.

0:15:510:15:53

-The old house

-forms the top of the T...

0:15:540:15:57

-..and this is the stem of the T.

0:15:570:16:00

-This part of the house is new.

0:16:040:16:06

-That's the bathroom.

0:16:060:16:08

-There are examples

-of Elinor's artwork there.

0:16:080:16:11

-This is Steffan's room.

0:16:120:16:13

-Hiya, Steff.

0:16:140:16:14

-Hiya, Steff.

-

-Hello.

0:16:140:16:15

-There's a cosy study in here.

0:16:160:16:18

-There's a laptop on the desk.

0:16:180:16:20

-This room is very calming.

0:16:210:16:22

-You can see the garden from here.

0:16:230:16:25

-Elinor designed that door.

0:16:250:16:27

-It's a comfortable room.

0:16:280:16:30

-The first floor

-is also an extension.

0:16:420:16:44

-Here, we see two of the 13 shades

-of white in this house.

0:16:520:16:57

-This is where Richard

-does his typesetting work.

0:16:580:17:02

-He also

-does some printing of his own.

0:17:020:17:05

-There are creative havens

-in every corner of this house.

0:17:060:17:10

-This is the master bedroom.

0:17:120:17:13

-There are several colours in here,

-including some which aren't white!

0:17:140:17:19

-There are hints of green and grey

-here and there.

0:17:190:17:22

-It's a very calming

-colour combination.

0:17:230:17:25

-That's just what you need

-in a bedroom.

0:17:260:17:28

-What do we have here?

0:17:290:17:30

-A third rocking chair.

0:17:300:17:32

-I think you'll find this material

-was designed by Kevin Burgess.

0:17:320:17:37

-What a comfortable chair.

0:17:370:17:39

-Are you keen collectors?

0:17:470:17:49

-Yes - we collect junk!

0:17:500:17:52

-We go to auctions and we buy things

-at the last minute...

0:17:530:17:57

-..when the dealers' vans are full!

0:17:570:18:00

-It's easier to grab 5 bargains,

-at that time of day.

0:18:000:18:03

-We enjoy renovating things

-and rebuilding things.

0:18:040:18:08

-Yes, we collect things

-and bring out their potential.

0:18:090:18:13

-We collect paper and cardboard.

0:18:140:18:16

-We make use of it in our art.

0:18:170:18:19

-We recycle it and turn it into art.

0:18:200:18:23

-This came from the shed we had

-when we lived near Newtown.

0:18:230:18:28

-We resurrected it and recycled it.

0:18:280:18:31

-It has now become a combination

-of clocks and a collectors' box.

0:18:340:18:39

-A few items here hold memories

-and family connections.

0:18:400:18:44

-There's a special pencil over here,

-for example.

0:18:440:18:48

-This came from

-my grandfather's dairy business.

0:18:480:18:52

-His name was T R Jones

-and he was a dairy farmer.

0:18:520:18:55

-His farm was in Corwen.

0:18:560:18:57

-"Ty Newydd Dairy, Corwen,

-for butter, eggs, milk and cream."

0:18:580:19:02

-His logo was...

0:19:020:19:04

-.."You can whip our cream

-but you cannot beat our milk."

0:19:040:19:09

-That's fantastic!

0:19:090:19:10

-The sheets of music you can see

-are actually hymns.

0:19:110:19:14

-My other grandfather

-lived in Fishguard...

0:19:140:19:18

-..and he loved music.

0:19:180:19:19

-He was a renowned singer.

0:19:190:19:21

-The clock face also came from

-my grandparents' home, in Fishguard.

0:19:210:19:26

-The majority of the pieces

-remind us of people and places.

0:19:280:19:32

-Yes, places we've visited

-and places where we've lived in.

0:19:320:19:36

-There's a personal story

-behind each one.

0:19:360:19:39

-There's no real theme

-to the collection.

0:19:400:19:43

-They're all relevant

-to some part of our lives.

0:19:430:19:47

-There are more boxes

-and very personal trinkets in here.

-This is a handy box for collecting

-stones and birds' skulls.

0:19:550:20:00

-We pick up birds' skulls

-when we're out walking.

0:20:000:20:04

-Yes, I'm forever picking up

-birds' skulls!

0:20:040:20:08

-You've really pushed the boat out...

0:20:080:20:11

-..and painted this room

-a bluey shade of green.

0:20:110:20:15

-Yes, we live on the edge!

0:20:150:20:16

-Yes, we live on the edge!

-

-Compared to the rest of the house,

-this was a brainstorm!

0:20:160:20:20

-Yes, but it's a calming colour.

0:20:200:20:23

-This is a lovely room

-in which to sit at night.

0:20:230:20:27

-This is one of the cottage's

-two original rooms.

0:20:270:20:31

-It's cosy but we can't have

-a real fire in here.

0:20:330:20:37

-We use candles to create

-the right ambience in here.

0:20:370:20:41

-The stairs lead to a kind of hall.

0:20:420:20:45

-We use that as storage space

-for arts and crafts materials.

0:20:460:20:51

-That's a simple, plain bedroom.

0:20:540:20:57

-We all love that bedroom

-because of its simplicity.

0:21:000:21:04

-There's a hint of red here.

-Was the house painted red?

0:21:100:21:14

-It's a possibility.

0:21:140:21:16

-I don't know what's on these walls.

0:21:160:21:19

-It's certainly been whitewashed

-time and time again.

0:21:190:21:24

-I'm fond of the patterns.

-I don't want to get rid of them.

0:21:240:21:28

-It's nice.

0:21:280:21:30

-There are some huge gaps here.

0:21:310:21:33

-Yes,

-I should do something about it...

0:21:340:21:37

-..but birds nest there in the summer

-and shelter there in the winter.

0:21:370:21:42

-Birds use these walls as their home

-but I'll fill the gaps, one day.

0:21:420:21:47

-It's hard to see

-where the extension begins.

0:21:470:21:50

-The stonework was matched up well.

0:21:500:21:53

-Yes, you can't tell

-it's been extended.

0:21:540:21:56

-You added this part, Richard.

0:22:140:22:16

-Yes. We added this porch

-to the house.

0:22:170:22:20

-Will you hang a door there?

0:22:230:22:24

-Will you hang a door there?

-

-No, we like it just the way it is.

0:22:240:22:27

-It's a room

-that isn't inside or outside.

0:22:270:22:30

-I understand you're a winemaker.

0:22:310:22:34

-I understand you're a winemaker.

-

-Yes, that's true.

0:22:340:22:35

-This is last year's blackberry wine.

0:22:360:22:39

-You can try it, if you like.

0:22:390:22:41

-It's slightly cloudy.

0:22:440:22:46

-It's slightly cloudy.

-

-It hasn't settled.

0:22:460:22:47

-It smells like sherry.

0:22:480:22:50

-That's good.

0:22:540:22:56

-It's better than I expected.

0:22:560:22:58

-That's intriguing.

-What did you expect?

0:22:580:23:01

-Are you happy with the house

-or are you itching to make changes?

0:23:040:23:08

-No, it's fine as it is.

0:23:090:23:10

-Life's too short -

-we want to do other things.

0:23:110:23:14

-We want to make the most

-of our surroundings.

0:23:140:23:17

-You can work on a house for ever.

0:23:180:23:20

-The house is fine, as it is.
