I'm not a builder, but concrete roof beams seem to me highly suspect. Concrete has a much shorter lifespan than good solid timber. Corners can be cut using concrete.

Renovations are costly and difficult to organise, unless you pay through the nose. I wouldn’t touch anything that needed much more than a new bathroom and kitchen windows and doors etc.

True Al but odds on not what Daniel wants to hear.
As you know they are talking about vegas with the pre-shaped blocks dropped in between the gaps and a concrete screed poured over that etc etc, guess a "real cheap" job could be done with old kit for 5k but ...............

Many Spanish insurance companies will not insure any form of wood construction. Concrete beams and filled in with concrete pieces is the norm.
