Kevin McCloud returns to Graven Hill in Bicester - the UK's largest mass self-build site to witness the trials, setbacks and successes of future residents endeavouring to craft their own, highly individual homes. Kevin will also be witnessing the birth of a new Street in Glasgow with co-presenter Natasha Huq.
