Episode Summary

Suffolk, 2019: Tree House
Building his own home was always a pipe dream for musician Toby Leeming. But all that changed after he survived the trauma of leukaemia. During his recovery, ideas for a radical new home came thick and fast - a place to re-invent his life, improve his health and provide for his actress wife Libby and their infant daughter. Toby's dream is to create anew housefrom aseries of interlinked barn-like structures, wrapped in a horseshoe around an ancient oak tree in beautiful rural Suffolk. The design for Toby's five-building home contains six bedrooms, six bathrooms, a music studio and an annexe - a vast project more like a villagethan a house.Creating this life changing vision on a £530k budget, and in only eight months, won't be easy, especially as they must build up close to an ancient oak without destroying its roots. The pressure on this project is immense.moreless
