Season 7 / Episode 3 and airs on 25 January 2018 20:00
George Clarke explores the extraordinary world of small builds, where people turn tiny spaces into the most incredible places to live, work and play. He even tries making a few of his own.
The first episode visits a canal boat conversion in Dudley and a cattle trailer in Yorkshire being turned into a luxury holiday camper. There's also a dynamic, multi-coloured open plan space in Japan. And the idea of building a nostalgic toy treehouse is hatched.
George meets an old friend in Norfolk who sees the potential in the most unpromising of spaces - an old sewage works. With no plans, no budget and just 'brute force and ignorance' - Reuben's audacious idea to create a unique chill out space for his family, including a self-supporting dome roof and a circular carp pond, could be the most incredible Amazing Space ever. George also travels over 5,000 miles exploring Japan. This week features a breathtaking chapel made of intertwining concrete ribbons, where bride and groom tie the knot in the heavens. In the Midlands, a father and daughter work together on salvaging a dilapidated childhood tree house with a budget of just £300. And George and Will continue building a giant toy tree house, and are inspired by a modern tree pavilion. They set about figuring out a way to bring George's impossible childhood fantasy to life using the most unlikely of vegetables.
George meets airline enthusiast Vince, who bought a cockpit from a passenger jet for a bargain £750. He's hired precision engineer Stu to transform it into a summerhouse. However, the two have never met, neither of them have even seen the cockpit and Vince isn't even sure if It'll fit in his garden. It could be facing a turbulent experience for everyone. Sometimes, the most incredible spaces are made with materials destined for the scrap yard. But for Scott, the humble scaffold board is an inspiration for an incredible indoor/outdoor space with moveable walls. George's journey through Japan continues and he visits a multi-coloured apartment in Tokyo. Every corner of the space, including the echo chamber and lunar landscape floor is designed to challenge the mind, the body and hopefully extend your life.
Many people dream of escaping the rat race and living a life of freedom on the road. And that's exactly what communications manager Ellie has done. Ellie bought herself a 1970s double-decker bus, with her heart set on turning it into a luxury mobile home. In Suffolk, Neil Stebbings is looking to create a multi-purpose super den complete with an incredible floor that turns into a roof terrace and a concealed pool table. In Japan, renowned for its stunning court yards, George visits a concrete shrimp shell with a glorious indoor haven featuring soaring bamboo. And George heads to Kew Gardens, looking for some inspiration for his tree-house project.
George meets a teacher building a classroom in a salvaged jet and a Devon couple turning a cricket scorebox into a garden hang out. There's also a steel treehouse in New Zealand.
In Lincolnshire, a couple are adding a dance floor to a rare campervan, while a small Stirlingshire business converts a Sea King helicopter into luxury overnight accommodation
George meets a Dorset couple building a room with great views over Chesil Beach. There's also a doggie campervan, and a remote lodge made almost entirely of glass in New Zealand.
George meets a Cornish couple turning the country's most expensive public loo into a luxury cliff-top holiday home. He also unveils his futuristic rotating home at Pinewood.
In this special episode of George Clarke's Amazing Spaces, George and Will Hardie meet the daughter of a survivor of a World War II Japanese prisoner of war camp who has uncovered a remarkable secret. Jan Fursier has discovered in one of her father Reg's wartime diaries an immaculately illustrated guide to building a 1930s caravan, painstakingly created by her dad while held in captivity. Jan wants George and Will's help to bring the caravan to life. As they delve deeper and learn more about Reg, they uncover an incredible story of survival and resilience under terrible circumstances, and of a secret undercover POW university where officers gave illicit lectures, covering everything from the sciences to the best restaurants in London. Once the caravan is completed, George and Will invite Jan for an emotional reunion in the same Welsh national park where her father took the family on holidays after the war.
