Summary This week Kevin McCloud follows the extraordinary story of estate manager Ed Waghorn and his wife Rowena who live a virtually self-sufficient lifestyle with their four children on a small property in Herefordshire.Four years ago, Ed set out to build a five bedroom home for his family, with a tiny budget scrapped together from their savings.Using recycled materials that no one else wanted, wood from the nearby forests and stone from around the site, Ed gradually sculpts an organic, hobbit-like, timber framed, curvy house on the hillside.The house goes up ever so slowly and as the process of building becomes a way of life for Ed, Kevin can't help wondering whether the children will grow up and leave home before the house is finished.PRODUCTION DETAILS:Executive Producers: Charlie Bunce and Fiona Caldwell; Producer: Madeleine Hall. Director: Michael Ratcliffe
