Ex-RAF pilot Jon and GP Gill Flewers have taken the gamble of all gambles. They bought a building plot in the Malvern hills in Worcestershire without ever having visited before.
After their living in New Zealand for four years, the couple have plans to build a three story Kiwi-style house will be clad in wood and stone, clinging to the hill and designed to take advantage of and enhance the surrounding scenery.
But naturally problems arise, the site is so steep that builders don’t want the job. So, despite a complete lack of experience, Jon quits his job to run the project himself. It proves an emotional rollercoaster ride.
