Architect George Clarke visits Lisa and Darren Walker who plan to convert a coach house in East Sussex and turn it into a very special home.
Like so many people seem to do on these shows the Walkers plan to live on site in a caravan with their growing teenage son and three dogs.
Neither Lisa and Darren have previous building experience but Lisa plans to project manage the whole thing herself but as usual when heritage buildings and beurocractic red tape is involved things don’t run as smoothly as they wished (especially with having to use oak for the roof supports rather than the planned steel frame), the biggest pressure they seem to face though is being on top of each other in the caravan for the two years that the build takes.
