In an epic self-build project five years in the making, Kevin McCloud follows ten pioneers as they construct neighbouring homes to create an entire street. Twenty-five-year-olds Chris and Roxie take a risk building their first home together using an untested flatpack construction system which sees 380 plywood boxes bolted together. It proves repetitive work, especially painting the hundreds of wooden cladding units, and the stress and strain of the project threatens the young couple’s relationship. Peter and Anita and their two teenagers live locally, but have outgrown their current house. Father and son hope to bond while building a dream family home with space for all. But the process isn’t all plain sailing.
