Each episode is about the host visiting people who have a dream to build a house and how they bring the build to fruition. We see their trials and tribulations along the way. Each episode is a separate stand-alone story.
Architect Chris Moller follows the progress of interesting and ambitious house building projects, speaking with the owners and tracking the ups and downs of the design, construction and ... See full summary »
Architect George Clarke travels around Britain meeting people who are trying to restore historically and architecturally significant buildings, many of which are non-residential buildings being converted into homes.
What's about all those people thinking they could be project coordinators in their spare time? Or they don't need an architect?
Of course, the show wouldn't be as interesting without it, but the same old same old budget problem is getting a little annoying.
First they want to build their dream home as big and pompous as possible But all of them have wrong budget expectations. Then they want it built in months during the worst possible snow and rain storms. And in the end they magically have enough money for it, but it took 4 years instead of 2.
I love seeing new ides for houses, learn more about architecture and building problems, but I don't need the personal drama in each episode. Will they have enough money? Will the weather get better? Will they finally move in? That gets a little boring. The architecture itself should be the focus. And the building site.
