Pembray, Wales – Blythan Construction has announced construction of a house for its owners in the Welsh town of Pembrew.
Blythan said it had secured a loan from the Welsh Government for the £250,000 (€275,000) house.
It is expected to be completed in the autumn of 2019.
The project is being funded by the Welsh government, as part of its Rural Development Fund (RDF) programme, which has a focus on providing homes for the elderly, disabled and those in rural areas.
In addition to the new house, Blytha said it has been awarded a new contract to build a new home for its other owner, the retired businessman who owns an office in the village.
“Blytha has a great reputation in the Pembridgeshire community and the project will be a great boost to the local economy,” the company said in a statement.
The company also said it would also build a more modern building for its current owner.
“We look forward to opening the doors of the new home to our owner, who will be able to live there with his family,” the statement said.
It said the new building would also have a modern garden, a private kitchen, and will include a roof terrace.
The Blython estate, in a hamlet of just under 1,500 people, has a population of just over 7,000.
It has been blighted by the spread of the virus and has been hit by drought in recent years.
The county has a history of poor public transport links, particularly for people with disabilities, and there are fears that the current shortage of homes for elderly and disabled people will exacerbate the problems.
