Episode 1: Galloway 2019

Summary

Kevin McCloud meets Andy Stakes and Jeanette Hardy, who are building a new house on top of a sheer cliff on the west coast of Scotland. The pair want to spend £250,000 on a two-bedroom, glass-fronted and earth-sheltered home for themselves and their two beloved Newfoundland dogs. However, construction on such an exposed site is fraught with danger and the pair face no end of problems throughout the build, and a last minute design change that begs the biggest question: even if Andy finishes the house, will Jeanette actually like it?

Review

At the start of a new series, Kevin McCloud meets Andy and Jeanette, a brave (or is that foolhardy?) couple building a house on top of a sheer cliff on the west coast of Scotland. Guess what? There are budget overruns, schedule delays and some challenging weather to battle – plus the worry that Jeanette won’t actually like the finished build.
