Host Chris Moller meets a range of creative and enterprising New Zealanders taking on the challenge of building their own unique homes.
The series follows the people determined to make their dream home a reality, as they grapple with extremes of geography, adverse weather, and escalating costs to deliver such diverse and inspirational projects as a medieval castle and a glass home built over a stream.
In this weeks episode, Musicians, Justine Cormack and Marc Taddei swap their Auckland home for the mountains of Central Otago. Buying a plan online from an American architect, they risk all by adapting the wedge-shaped design for the Southern Hemisphere.
