Birmingham: The Self-Build

Kevin McCloud checks out a housing scheme in Birmingham. It's near impossible for many people, particularly those on a low income, to buy their own home. However, a Birmingham Housing Association along with Angela and Peter has set up a scheme that allows people to build one instead. The group of 11 men and women will build, not just their own property, but each other's homes as well. None of these budding self-builders have previous experience in the trade and have undergone extensive training to teach them the ropes.
