Grand Designs

Series 13 - Episode 6



Kevin McCloud meets Tamayo Hussey, who has missed Japan since she moved to the UK 14 years earlier with her husband, quantum physics professor Nigel. The couple want to transform a 1960s forester's lodge into a unique Japanese house, complete with a tatami room - decorated in her homeland's traditional style - sliding paper walls and a bath on the roof. Keen to keep costs down, they have decided to engage only the design skills - rather than the full services - of an architect, so with no previous building experience they tackle the project alone.
