For 30 years, no-one’s been allowed to build on the protected land surrounding one of Britain’s most historic abbeys in Hertfordshire. But no-one reckoned on golf-coach Chris and ex-figure skater Kayo. Incensed by anti-social behaviour on overgrown abbey land next to their current house, Chris and Kayo launch a 6 year battle to solve the issue by building a new family home on the land for them and their 3 children.

Constrained by stringent planning conditions from English Heritage, the local council and even the church, Chris and Kayo put all their trust in friend and designer Rogan. Eventually Rogan manages to wrangle a design that’ll satisfy everyone – but Chris and Kayo’s problems are only just beginning.

The unique, single story Roman courtyard inspired design is so intricate and complicated, and Rogan’s vision so unique, that immediately the 18 month build schedule and £600K budget come under enormous pressure. It proves a rollercoaster of delays, overspends and obsessive craftsmanship, with Chris and Kayo’s faith in Rogan tested to the limit. And remarkably one big question looms large throughout – will Chris and Kayo even like their radical family home when it’s finished?
