Episode 7

So what kind of house should you build when you move to a new place, that’s traditional and architecturally conservative? Surely something that fits in, that’s similar to the houses of the new neighbours you want to impress? Not if you’re Stephen Yeoman and Anita Findlay. They want to put up a cutting edge, post-industrial house that’s covered in bright orange rusty metal.

Not only that, their plot is one of the most prominent in their new home town in the South Downs – so everyone will be watching. Having to deal with an incredibly tight riverside plot, cash flow problems that threaten to bring work to a halt, and news of a first child on the way, Stephen and Anita’s project proves a real roller coaster ride. And that’s all before the fitting of their controversial rusty steel cladding starts to go badly wrong.
