Joe Crowley catches up with theatre director Alison Grant, who bought an abandoned cottage in Cuckmere Haven, East Sussex, at auction but discovered some unexpected problems lurking in the timbers of her house. Fourteen months on, he finds out whether she managed to tackle the issues and achieve her dream home. Joe also revisits previously vacant buildings along the North Circular that have now been brought back to life, and chats to empty-property officer Steve Reed, who is on a mission to save abandoned homes in Cardiff.
