Historic Cattle Barn

In this episode, architect Charlie Luxton heads to Staffordshire to meet engaged and ambitious couple George and Sarah, who plan to transform a 200-year-old derelict cattle barn into a luxurious and sustainable 4 bed family home. 

They bought the barn for £155,000 without planning permission and it takes 2 years to get the plans signed off as well as raise THE £130,000 they need before they can start work.  Charlie points out their budget is very tight particularly to transform a barn never designed to be lived in, into a fully functioning home with all mod cons.  The building has no electricity, running water or even drains and on top of all of that, they have a very tight deadline – just 10 months to complete the work because they are getting married.  George has the added complications and challenge of trying to hand carve 2 limestone staircases - but that alone will take a month of his time.
