After artist and teacher Michelle Parsons recovered from serious illness, she and her architect husband David decided it was time to seize the day and build the private hideaway they’d always yearned for. Having found a beautiful plot hidden away in an Essex woodland, David devised a sleek, black clad, three bedroom house with a separate artist studio for Michelle. In their drive for privacy however, they also took the radical decision to have no windows on the front of the house, or along one side, so no-one could ever see in. With a modest budget of £230,000, and Michelle and David project managing themselves, their build gets off to a sticky start. After a dangerous gas leak, torrential rain turns the site into a mud bath. Even as the building finally starts to take shape, the big question still remains – without windows on 2 sides, could their new home turn out to be just a gloomy bunker in a glade…?
