Building your own home can be a real struggle at the best of times. Louise and Milko Ostendorf spent 2 1/2 years converting an old building in Waterloo into a luxury penthouse, and ended up with a real battle on their hands.

During construction, fierce fighting broke out over a party wall. A year after Louise and Milko moved into their luxury retreat, the battle of Waterloo continued. Three and a half years on, Kevin revisits the site to see if the offending wall has to go or if it can stay"--ABC-TV website

"David and Anjana's tiny coach house was proving too small for them and their children, so they decided to build a new house in their own garden, which was big by London standards. But their grassy plot of land came with a few problems. It was overlooked by a huge block of flats and in the middle of the block stood a chestnut tree they weren't allowed to cut down. David and Anjana came up with an inspired solution: they decided to build a curved house along the borders of their block, and they decided to do most of the work themselves. But from the beginning there were major issues which caused delays and a budget blow-out. Two and a half years after he first met David and Anjana, Kevin returns to see their finished avant-garde house"-ABC TV website
Hackney ( Visual )

"Kevin McCloud takes a trip back to the home of John and Elini Flood who completely gutted their Victorian terrace house to create an open, light and modern space. For ten years John and Elini have lived in a 19th century terrace house in the north-east London borough of Hackney. Hackney is a conservation area so the facade can't be changed but everything else can be demolished. Together with their architects, John and Elini want to create a cool, contemporary look, making it a sunnier, brighter place to live. But it's not long before the house reveals its hidden secrets, including damp walls and no foundations. Not long after those issues are fixed, part of the new roof, installed by German contractors, starts leaking. All of this adds time and cost to the project and a battle with their builders. Kevin returns to see if John and Elini's house delivered, and whether or not they got their dream"--ABC website
