What's your favourite?

Personally I was swept away with the old couple who built a Huff Haus.

I liked that too. Also a couple of ones that were done in Italy - Puglia for one. Monty and his sliding roof. The nice couple in Edinburgh. Spitalfields one, where they restored a house they didn't even OWN.

Ones that I really hated: perfectionist woman in the Alps with M. Bastard the builder, the violin factory lot, the people who gutted a Victorian terrace and made it all open plan.

Love the Huff Haus couple. Hope they're still enjoying the place. Such old groovsters.

the violin factory lot

There was a whole load of dysfunctionality in that household, and no mistake.

My favourite favourite was the wooden house near Petsworth.

I need a Huf Haus. I will have a Huf Haus. One day.

I loved the Huf Haus, also the Edinburgh one and the house in the woods. Oh, and the one squeezed into a tiny plot in Peckham that had a bath underneath the bed.

The Yorkshire castle.

Lovely couple, especially him, great craftsmanship, stupid bloody English Heritage.

The Peckham house is very close to us!

hellybelly - 15 Apr 2011 20:59:53 (#11 of 3558)

I think I saw it once from a bus when I was visiting a friend who lives in Peckham. I was very excited.

Ben Law's house in the woods, particularly the revisit. Gets me every time.

Avonlea - 16 Apr 2011 16:56:37 (#13 of 3558)

I cry at the revisit. Every time.

hellybelly - 16 Apr 2011 18:59:08 (#14 of 3558)

So do I.

New series! On now.

They're insane.

brouhahaha - 14 Sep 2011 21:30:01 (#16 of 3558)

Remember the disastrous house boat, last seen abandoned and adrift?

brouhahaha - 14 Sep 2011 21:34:15 (#17 of 3558)

Kevin is always enthusing over the views at these builds, and his only criterion seems to be the presence of grass.

'oh! Look at that view! Amazing! [sweeps arm across unremarkable vista of green flatness akin to a school playing field].

He's nearly a million in debt for an unfinished house. Nutter.

Wombat - 14 Sep 2011 21:40:18 (#19 of 3558)

Jaysus.

I don't think Kev is too impressed.

"This is what the MOD would build."

He's not wrong.

Ooh, banking troubles. What a surprise.
