Highland Log Home
Having sold their previous home two years ago, Scott, Lisa and their 12-year-old son Archie live in a rented house in the suburbs of Inverness. But it doesn't have the space and individuality they desire from a home, so the family are determined to move into a new place. After failing to find a suitable house on the market, they bought an acre-and-a-half plot in the Scottish countryside and have decided to realise their dream of building a bespoke log home there. But on their limited budget constructing a spacious log house from scratch on such a remote plot would be impossible.
Instead the family have ordered their new home from a specialist log construction company based in Shropshire. All the logs are processed and cut to size at the yard and the entire structure is erected to make sure it all fits. The kit of logs must then be completely dismantled before it can be shipped to the plot 450 miles away, where it must then be re-assembled. But as the logs begin to arrive, the infamous Highland weather worsens, wreaking havoc with the build schedule and budget.
