Building Dream Homes Episode 12 of 15

In Stirlingshire, Bobby Halliday's ambitious ten-house farm steading development in the shadow of Stirling Castle continues through the depths of winter. He is dealing with newlyweds who plan to make a four-bedroom house on the development their first home. Sounds simple, but with one half of the couple living in Indonesia and making decisions on design and interiors via the internet, tensions rise as Bobby worries what her reaction will be when she finally sees the house. When she does arrive, the kitchen is in the wrong place. Not only does the whole thing have to be dismantled, the new floor has to be dug up.

In Edinburgh, David Blaikie tackles an ambitious kitchen and winter garden room extension to an Edwardian townhouse. The owners have a young family, and living on site during construction threatens to overwhelm them. But their unusual build plan eventually pays off and they finally get the kitchen of their dreams... even if they have to wait a little longer than planned for their glass extension.
