Joanna & Ben

Animator Joanna and carpenter Ben are a part of the regeneration of a Glasgow inner-city neighbourhood, bringing to it a unique vision - a magnificent American ranch-style house. 

Much like the buildings of the Wild West which inspires them, Joanna and Ben’s house will be made from simple materials with a structural Douglas Fir frame and a rustic tin roof.

But with a tight budget Joanna and Ben can only afford this ambitious house if they construct it themselves. The trouble is, they have never built a house before. So, with the help of their carpenter friend Craig, they begin to teach themselves the basic skills needed to build a ranch.
