Grand Designs Season 5 Episode 4 - Kent: Finnish Log Cabin
Synopsis: John Cadney and Marnie Moon have never had a permanent home. So John, a carpenter, has rolled up his sleeves and decided to build a house for his family with his bare hands. For 16 years, John, Marnie and their children have camped on land owned by Marnie’s parents, because they could never afford to buy a house in the area where they live. So now they’re building their own place. After much searching for the right kind of house they settled on an environmentally friendly four-bedroom log cabin. The whole thing was imported from Finland as hundreds of pre-cut bits of wood. All John had to do is figure out how this kit house fits together! Series featuring the challenges faced by eight people designing and building their dream houses.
