House on the Moon
John Henry and Ruth Hamilton fell in love with the rugged and isolated wilderness of the Isle of Harris while on holiday in the Outer Hebrides. They have decided to take the plunge and move to their dream destination, but have been unable to find a suitable house for sale. However during their search, they chanced upon a stunning plot for sale with panoramic views along the timeless coastline. But building a traditional bricks and mortar house on this remote island, infamous for its gale-force winds, would be a Herculean - and very expensive - challenge.
Luckily, the couple found an innovative construction company on the neighbouring island of Skye, who specialise in pioneering kit houses. The team fabricate the home in a factory, before shipping it to the plot on a lorry, and - hopefully - putting everything together in a matter of just hours. But with a craggy, rock solid site to flatten, only one ferry a day to the isle, and a storm blowing in from the Atlantic, will this prove an impossible build?
