Colossal Cathedral

In this episode, architect Charlie Luxton meets newlyweds electrician Sean and scrapyard owner Debs, who together take on the monumental challenge of transforming a Grade 2 listed church in Yorkshire. Built nearly 180 years ago they plan to turn this colossal church into a palatial home big enough to entertain their large extended family.

They have a healthy build budget of £400,000 AND paid just £85,000 for the building, which sounds cheap, but this building was never built to be lived in.  The footprint is 450 square meters and the steeple soars 36 meters into the air, it’s so vast they intend to build a 3-storey house within it.

Tested to the limit almost daily Sean and Debs battle through a catalogue of setbacks, desperate to create their dream home and save this historic structure.
