First Time Home

In this episode Charlie Luxton is in Devon meeting Alice Deuchar- a professional photographer - and Daniel Shamroth AKA Shammy, a musician.  Alice and Shammy are a very creative couple and spend their spare time scouring Devon's car boot sales and thrift shops hunting down bargains.

Alice and Shammy have been renting and living together for ten years but are now getting onto the property ladder for the very first time as they've managed to bag themselves the ultimate bargain property, for only forty thousand pounds. However, the property they've found is a mid 19th century chapel, tucked away in the Devon countryside, which was never designed to be lived in. Alice and Shammy's plan is to maintain and preserve as much of the chapel's original design, structure and fittings but after years of neglect, the chapel is going to need a lot of creative problem solving to turn it into a dream home. This will be their biggest up-cycle project to date; with a limited £60,000 build budget, they plan to do most of the work themselves, but transforming a chapel of this calibre on such a shoestring budget  will definitely test them to the limit....and with such limited resources, they'll need to call in numerous favours and rely on the support of all their friends and family.
