A low cost house building revolution is underway in the UK. With house prices rising and house sizes shrinking, brave individuals are taking things into their own hands and attempting to build new homes from scratch, for less than £100K.
Keeper of design, architecture and digital at the V&A, Kieran Long, and architect Piers Taylor revisit some of the most inspiring £100k builds they’ve even worked on. Their owners went through countless struggles to get the home of their dreams, but now they face one more challenge: getting everything just right!
With budgets of only a few thousand pounds each, four couples must come up with ingenious solutions to problems as wide-ranging as how to make a large space feel warm and inviting, to how to craft the perfect staircase.
There will be fears and frustrations aplenty as Kieran and Piers help these homeowners to finish off their pride and joy on a shoestring budget. It’s now or never as they battle to complete their perfect homes for good.
