"Finca - renovating an old farmhouse in Spain" by Alec & Erna Fry, published by Santana, available from the Santana website direct I think or from English bookshops. Has lots of useful info regardless of the type of house you're working on.

have bought small shell of a house
If its a shell it may not be legal...(if legal would have building permission and architects plans) find out before you spend more money/time on it...without the above, you wont get electricity and it could be pulled down.
