Kevin McCloud is used to building projects taking a long time. He only recently visited the Northumberland home of a young Polish couple that had taken five years to complete. But Ed and Rowena Waghorn’s five-bedroom home in Herefordshire may take a lot longer. And, astonishingly, they don’t seem to mind a bit.
It’s not just their minuscule budget of £80,000 or even the fact that they’re collecting recycled and unwanted materials to use in the build that’s slowing things down. The real trouble is that the plans for this truly organic home for their four children mainly exist in Ed’s head. And, as we know, Kevin’s not much of a one for happenstance.
Kevin McCloud meets estate manager Ed Waghorn and his wife Rowena, a couple living an almost self-sufficient life with their four children on a smallholding in Herefordshire. They have been constructing a timber-framed house using recycled materials, wood from nearby forests and stone from around the site, but as construction becomes a way of life for Ed, they seem to have lost sight of their goal.
