Next Episode of Building the Dream is
Designer Charlie Luxton helps people build their dream homes which are amazing and affordable.
In the first of the new series, Charlie's in south London, where self-building duo Caroline and Chris are hoping to deliver an urban marvel on a tight plot, and a tighter budget. Chris is an architect, so you'd think achieving perfection on time and on budget should come second nature. But a string of budget-busting gremlins suggest this build has other ideas. And just when they think things can't get any more complicated, life throws them a curveball which racks the pressure even higher.
Charlie Luxton's in East Yorkshire, where Nick and Jane are transforming an old bungalow into a contemporary home - on a budget so small that it almost defies belief. To keep costs down, Nick reckons he can balance working as a fireman with putting in hours on site - but that idea is soon in danger of going up in smoke. Charlie has his work cut out getting these two to make the cuts required to stop this project bankrupting and breaking them.
Charlie Luxton heads to Woking in Surrey to meet Jason and Philippa, who believe they have discovered the perfect refurb project. The couple plan to redevelop a house by demolishing half of it and camping in the remaining shell while the new place grows around them. Jason is driven to the brink working every waking hour, while their budget teeters on the edge due to a drop in household income.
