Impossible Builds

Impossible Builds

Series 2 - Episode 2



Essex couple Steve and Sharon have always wanted a bolt hole. They ruled out Palm Springs as being too far away and France bit the dust because “we don’t speak the lingo”. But happily they fell in love with somewhere closer to home, an empty plot on a remote, thickly wooded peninsula on the Norfolk/Suffolk border.

But strict protective planning laws ruled out a permanent building so instead the couple hit upon what is effectively a gigantic, wood and glass mobile home assembled 300 miles away in Cumbria, which we see being driven onto the site (in two separate pieces, it’s too big to transport whole) and fitted together.

It’s all surprisingly straightforward, apart from the mud…


Charlie Luxton and Aidan Keane meet Steve and Sharon Langstone, who are building a kit home in ancient woodland overlooking Fritton Lake on the border between Suffolk and Norfolk.
