Day 18 of #mydailyrenovation is "freestyle" so I am freestyle choosing to celebrate a year of legally owning the chapel (we got the keys a couple of days later) but we would not have been able to even start this adventure without the support (and accommodation) of my folks. Today we took them touristing round our home and we have the pleasure of another couple of days before they head back home. Today also saw the council notices going up locally and more positive feedback on the portal from world heritage and natural England. Fingers and toes crossed the positivity keeps coming. #chapellife #awaitingplanning #family #lovewhereyoulive #swisbest #poldark #location #fangirl #swcoastpath #grade2listed #freestyle @mydailyrenovation

Day 10 of #mydailyrenovation October list is "staying level headed" I saw something similar being sold for a huge price tag so we went out and found an old spirit level and the pegs are from @ikeauk, I'd like to source some proper old school house pegs eventually. This is the only thing we've put up in the chapel and replaced a nasty plastic one. We did have to work out how to level it against the wobbly angles of the chapel! #chapellife #awaitingplanning #grade2listed #homemade #upcycle #vintage #level #keepalevelhead #homedecor #cornwall #church #oldbuilding #kernow #swisbest #home @mydailyrenovation

Day 8 of #mydailyrenovation is community spirit. Last night we went to the town council meeting at St Just. Our application was being discussed. Cornwall county council always reach out to the local town councils for their opinion. We spoke for a moment only to introduce ourselves and offer to answer any questions they had. We also thanked them for making us feel welcome within the community so far. They supported our application and this morning this was shown on the Cornwall planning website. this is a step in the right direction and has left us feeling truly part of this fab community we now call home. #cornwall #swisbest #kernow #lovewhereyoulive #chapellife #grade2listed #awaitingplanning #communityspirit #community @mydailyrenovation

Day four of #mydailyrenovation is "on the wall" the top of this pic is the first wave of wonderful Cards from the amazing @comfy_marmalade, i have never won anything so was over the moon to get these gems and 5 more larger prints to come, go check out her page she is awesome and so heloful! Γ€bottom right is a random set of picture frames i found for a bargin. Completely opposite to everything we have but sometimes you just have to go with your gut instinct and i love them. Finally bottom right... We found this hidden on a pew when we first arrived, you can see where it hung outside and it has years of staples embedded from all the chapel notices. We will give it some Tlc and it will take pride of place somewhere within the chapel.#chapellife #awaitingplanning #grade2listed #art #wallspace #tlc #origionalfeature #chapel #weslyan @mydailyrenovation #cornwall #kernow #swisbest

Day one of October for #mydailyrenovation is "less than perfect" this is the celling in the schoolhouse. It will be the room we start our renovation with when we get planning permission. It will become a littte studio apartment that we can heat and shut the door on the major works in the main chapel. It is in need of some tlc! #chapellife #awaitingplanning #grade2listed #oldbuilding #lime #lathe #tlc #cornwall

#mydailyrenovation final prompt of the month is to share next month's list, I have been terrible this month at keeping up and as autumn has kept in and planning still feels a distance off I have given up dreaming we'd have a new kitchen and added to my (9 month and counting) temporary kitchen with a mini oven. This means I can roast veggies again and bake healthy granola and quiche. I am by no means a cook or even particularly domesticated, however I have enjoyed cooking, i think it's because it's the only heat generated in the chapel at the moment! #chapellife #awaitingplanning #grade2listed #itscold #autumn #auntiesrecipe #yummy #kitchen

Tenuous link to #mydailyrenovation prompt of destruction today we went on a mission to witness mother nature at her most wonderous and destructive, the waves were big but not what had been forcast. what did happen was the destruction of my grumpy mood. I think the waiting for planning and gloomy weather have taken its toll of late. Today's stroll round Porthleven was enough to eradicate the blues.#chapellife #awaitingplanning #grade2listed #lovewhereyoulive #takeabreak #swcoast #swisbest

Happy Saturday! *Cheesy post alert* This totally sums up #mydailyrenovation prompt today of "couldn't live without" these two brighten even the gloomiest of days. #chapellife #awaitingplanning #grade2listed #chapel #blackcats #catsofinstagram #family #swisbest #Cornwall @mydailyrenovation

A good day in #chapellife Lovely morning making new doggo friends! Delivery of the cup we had made using the little chapel logo James designed, finally got the new @ikeauk light up in the utility and a bit of a clean and as the weather became very autumnal some slow cooking using the beany mix from @mobilezerowasteshop #awaitingplanning #grade2listed #swisbest #dogsofinstagram #slowcooking #autumn #logo #design #mydailyrenovation #Cornwall #oldbuilding

Day 22 of August's #mydailyrenovation is personal touches. Today is a milestone and mini celebration. We decided we wanted this chapel of ours to have the personal touch. So we have done all the planning, drawings, visuals, forms and everything ourselves. Has it taken longer, yes! Has it enabled us to make design changes as we go, yes. Do we know every inch of our building and understand what we have just submitted inside out and back to front. YES! Today is a big day. Full planning is finally submitted with all the bats and barns and contaminated land and Community Levy's accounted for.
Now to wait the 8 weeks 😬
Thanks to those who offered advice /moral support / wine! We love you loads xx

Day 19 of August's @mydailyrenovation #mydailyrenovation is "next big purchase....." We've both had birthdays this month and cash gifts from parents, so let's have a little fun.... Insta family what would you get? Cooker (for the chapel we've not got planning for yet πŸ˜‚) a kayak for adventures while we wait or a puppy (met a leonberger doggo today, almost half my height, would keep us warm in winter.) I know what gets my vote πŸ’•

Day for of August's. #mydailyrenovation is under foot. On time by a whisker (see what I did there!) Is Mandoo. She's a very grouchy cat but is always underfoot. She has taken to #chapellife really well but does seem to constantly be where our feet need to be. At 19 I worried the move may not be a good thing but she has made herself well and truly at home in the front window which gets the most sun. #awaitingplanning #catsofinstagram #chapelcat #family

#mydailyrenovation first day of August already, we have family visits up country, friends visiting us here and 2 birthdays to look forward to. We also want to make the most of the weather so if we are missing from social media you know where to find us. Happy summer holidays to all my teacher friends.

#mydailyrenovation A little top tip to close the month, we don't have an oven so we made cauliflower and broccoli cheese in the slow cooker, and to create the all important toasted top? We used the heat gun! Who knew the skills we'd learn when we moved here! I've been utterly useless this month with keeping up to date with posting however it's been a quiet month while we wait for planning but a busy month with visitors to the area. We love having guests and can't wait until they can stay with us not just in the vicinity. #chapellife #everydaysalearningday #awaitingplanning #oldbuilding #grade2listed #church #chapel #conversion #friends #family #lovewhereyoulive #swcoast #swisbest

Day 19 on #mydailyrenovation is #Follower Friday." I've been following @petalandbird since it started and they produce the most amazing paper flowers which you can keep forever, they do workshops where you can create your own and create pieces to order for weddings, anniversaries or any reason you can think of. I will definitely be commissioning something fantastic when we finish the chapel. 😍 An amazing account to browse through for inspiration #chapellife #awaitingplanning #grade2listed #flowerstagram #homemade #homeinspo #lastingmemento #kernow #keeper #foreverflowers #peonies @mydailyrenovation

Day 8 of #mydailyrenovation is #savetheplanet since moving here we've tried to create a pocket of homeliness. This space will be our utility eventually but currently it doubles as a kitchen, pantry, utility, greenhouse! Last week we found the best company on @instagram called @mobilezerowasteshop they are a company who travel over Cornwall and you can buy pretty much most things you need for your kitchen from cleaning products to coconut toothpaste to turmeric and all in a save the planet no plastic way. We took our @ikeauk jars and filled up on loads of things and are now gathering more jars for next time! They were really helpful online when trying to find their closest stop off and it feels good to be able to do our bit to #savetheplanet 🌍 #chapellife #conversion #awaitingplanning #grade2listed #Cornwall #swisbest #plasticfree #shelfie @alns_ecoclub @mydailyrenovation

Day 7 of #mydailyrenovation is greenery. We don't have a green and luscious space and never will. So we are slowly gathering pots, some from cheapo bargain shops, some from charity shops and some from the tip and we are beginning to brighten the granite facade of the front. It's a very windy space so considering the +60 mph winds we had a week or so ago I think we are doing pretty well. #chapellife #chapel #chapelconversion #renovation #awaitingplanning #grade2listed #granite #grey #garden #greenfingers #thanksmum #oasis #Cornwall #swisbest #kernow @mydailyrenovation

Day 4 of July's #mydailyrenovation is "comfort" so whilst we wait for planning and change of use this is where we sleep, this is the second configuration of the van as the first wasn't very comfortable. James made the base of the bed and we bought a foam mattress from @amazon and I have to say we its way more comfortable now than our old bed was plus the bonus of waking up to amazing views each morning. It's also warmer than the chapel at the minute πŸ€ͺ so a win all round #chapellife #vanlife #awaitingplanning #grade2listed #conversion #ambulanceconversion #swisbest #cornwall #swcoast #kernow @mydailyrenovation

Day 3 of July's #mydailyrenovation is Windows. This is the rear view of the chapel. The windows are boarded up as they have glass missing because they take the brunt of the weather coming off the coast. We covered the right hand window as it blew out the first time my folks came to look round πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ we have yet to see out of the left window but can't wait this will have views down to the mine and the sea. We've even built a window seat into the planning! The bottom window is the reverse of yesterday's "splash of colour". #chapellife #chapel #conversion #awaitingplanning #oldbuilding #grade2listed #windows #windowseat #mydailyrenovation @mydailyrenovation #swisbest #swcoastal #Cornwall #kernow

Day 2 of July's #mydailyrenovation is "splash of colour" this little window is in the choir vestry at the back of the chapel, it isn't an original feature and so far we can't find out when it was installed. But boy does it throw the most beautiful splashes of colour around in an otherwise dark space, sunsets here are breathtaking anyway but each evening we are treated to a beautiful light show in what will be our snug. #chapellife #nofilter #natureslightshow #swisbest #awaitingplanning #grade2listed #oldbuilding #Cornwall #kernow @mydailyrenovation

Day 1 of July's #mydailyrenovation is to share the challenges. We are enjoying watching everyone else's progress and struggle to join in as we are still waiting for permission to start πŸ™„ however we play when we can! This month as you can see is looking crazy busy with visitors and adventures. will try and post more each month so my target this month is at least 14. 😬 Wish me luck surviving Cornwall in the summer!

Day 26 of #mydailyrenovation is "details" we moved down to Cornwall at the end of January and have been in the chapel everyday since, always walking through these doors. The other day we were digging up weeds in the front and a chap stopped and said "you've seen your bench mark haven't you" we didn't know what he was talking about, so he showed us this mark on the wall, just to the right of the front door, it is an ordnance survey bench marker, we are used in the area as a marker point and we are officially 136m above sea level. I love that we are finding out all these details as we are starting our journey here. #chapellife #chapelconversion #awaitingplanning #grade2listed #oldbuilding #itsallinthedetails #swisbest #localknowledge #Cornwall #kernow #mydailyrenovation @mydailyrenovation @ordnancesurvey

Day 20 of June"s #mydailyrenovation is "structural". For us we know we have a looong way to go and planning is currently our big focus however from day one we knew that the roof was new (ish) and sound and the walls were around 3ft thick so we're pretty solid. Sure there are issues inside that will need major works to bring it up to standard however we would not have considered the place if we had any doubt that the structural Skelton of our chapel was sound. #chapellife #conversion #renovation #grade2listed #oldbuilding #awaitingplanning #Cornwall #weslyanchapel #mining #minerschapel #mydailyrenovation @mydailyrenovation

Day 19 of #mydailyrenovation is "vision" the following carousel is the rendered images of our plans for the chapel. We are planning to create a four bedroom home. Keeping the mezzanine balcony as it is we can create 3 "rooms" upstairs and one in the attached school house. An open plan kitchen and dinning space in the main chapel and a snug and utility at the back behind the Gothic screens. Fingers crossed the planning team like the vision too. #chapellife #chapel #conversion #renovation #awaitingplanning #grade2listed #oldbuilding #home #Cornwall #kernow @mydailyrenovation

Help needed! Hi all, if there is anyone who knows anything about CIL especially with a focus to a renovation project not a new build please could you get in touch, think my brain may explode 🀯🀯πŸ₯Ί #everydaysalearningday #needhelp #ittakesavillage #outofmycomfortzone #renovation #conversion #grade2listed #awaitingplanning #chapellife #chapel #chapelconversion #Cornwall

Day 13 of June's #mydailyrenovation is "steps" we have 3 main staircases and lots of little stairs around the building inside and out. The plaque is pride of place. When we met the gent who had played the organ he told us the back staircase, which will be to our bedroom stairs, was donated by a local family and enabled the choir to go upstairs without having to go through the chapel to get upstairs. We love finding out about our home. #chapellife #chapel #renovation #awaitingplanning #historicbuilding #Cornwall #steps #mydailyrenovation #stairway #lovewhereyoulive @mydailyrenovation

Day 6 of June's #mydailyrenovation @mydailyrenovation is Throwback, so mine is to the time we first came to Cornwall. Our first trip away together and bottom right is actually at the bottom of the road by the chapel! Who knew 3 years later we'd be living here. This was where it all started, we fell in love with this beautiful place and kept coming back and now we never want to leave. #chapellife #vanlife #awaitingplanning #grade2listed #lovewhereyoulive #liveyourbestlife #aimforyourdreams #Cornwall #kernow #southwestcoastalpath #throwbackthursday

Day 5 of #mydailyrenovation is front door focus. We are so far away from this but it got me thinking, last month we opened up the window to let light in but the door is a grubby red (looks nicer in the photo than reality!) So once we get the green light what colour do we go for? The window frames will be white, I was thinking a bright sunny yellow (channeling @hardcastletowers fab door) we saw some lovely lemony doors in a village down the road and James is liking the sagey green of the cottages down the coast at porthgwara. What do you all think? The building will remain the same so maybe a yearly change to compromise?

Day 3 of June's #mydailyrenovation is "samples". We are so far away from samples, I even went to the supermarket hoping to cheat it with food samples but alas there were none on offerπŸ˜‚then I remembered before we'd even had an offer accepted we got very excited about kitchens and bathrooms for the chapel and I have a box of posh (and some not so posh) brochures. Plan was to mood board the best bits. That has slipped down the to do list now we are here! But here you have, the closest thing to samples I have in my bid to post more regularly! #chapellife #interiordesign #awaitingplanning #grade2listed #notverygoodatwaiting #renovation #foodsample #tryingtobebetter etter #chapel #oldbuilding #home #renovationfamily #tryhard #aforeffort
