Andy Erlam

Britain's Empty Homes, Series 3 Episode 5 of 20

Joe meets playwright Andy Erlam, who dreams of turning a large, empty property into a unique home. To find out how big a build he is prepared to take on, Joe shows him around a disused glass factory in St Leonards on Sea, which could just be the unconventional living space he is looking for.

To illustrate how commercial buildings can be successfully transformed into unique homes, Joe takes Andy to meet a couple who saw the potential in a disused pub and turned it into a stunning, modern home.

Plus a look at how Dulwich Council won its battle to restore an iconic 100-year-old building, and one of the UK's empty property officers is on a crusade to bring some north London homes back to life.
