Every year 20,000 people in the UK make the bold decision to build their own home and we're following some of them as they go from foundations to finishing touches.
All our self-builders are aiming to build their dream home that's perfectly suited to their way of life and their wallets but each build's a rollercoaster ride packed full of trials and tribulations.
On today's programme, retired couple Dick and Irene Atkin are selling their spacious family home in Edwalton, Nottingham and building a modern German kit-home just around the corner. Plus the estate agent and his wife who've built an idyllic cottage in the country and presenter Simon O'Brien finds out that building a block wall isn't a breeze at building college.
