In June 2006 master carpenter Bill Bradley and his wife Sarah built not one but two timber houses in South London on the site of Bill's old wood workshop.

In the last century, on the first ever series of Grand Designs, a younger, fresh-faced Kevin McCloud witnessed a groundbreaking co-operative of ten families build their own homes on the edge of Brighton. 'The Hedgehogs' as they were known, were made up of former travellers and those living in insecure accommodation. The council bought them land and covered the cost of construction - the deal being that in return for their labour, and lots of it, they would get to live in their self-built homes at reduced rent. Twelve years later, Kevin returns to see if the houses and the families that built them have stood the test of time.
