Back in 2010 Lincoln Miles and Lisa Traxler transformed their 1970s mock stone bungalow in the Isle of Wight by adding a couple of extensions and what Kevin McCloud described as a water tower, before covering it with yogurt and cow dung to encourage lichen, while singeing a kilometre of larch to clad the building.
Although to most of us it seemed a barmy project, Kevin was clearly excited by their plans and obviously enjoyed flinging poo and yogurt at the walls. He thought the result was amazing but now returns to see whether their unconventional techniques worked and whether Lincoln and Lisa are happy with their new home.
In 2010, architectural designer Lincoln Miles and artist Lisa Traxler found an uninspiring 1970s bungalow on a plot on the Isle of Wight surrounded by ancient woodland. As part of their renovation project, they added a three-storey `tower' extension and used a range of unconventional techniques and alternative materials. Two years later, Kevin McCloud returned to find out whether the couple's methods led to success.
