The House That £100k Built

Series 2

Episode 1: Wajid and Anam

Duration: 59 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC Two ScotlandLatest broadcast: on BBC Two Northern Ireland HD

Kieran Long and Piers Taylor are pushed to their design limits as they attempt to find innovative and inspirational ideas to help Wajid and Anam build a three-storey, six-bedroom home in Burnley, Lancashire, with just £100k.

Anam's baby is due in just a few short months, so it's no longer realistic for she and husband Wajid to share a home with eight members of their family. The pressure is on Wajid's older brother Naim to deliver a new home within their budget - but it's not going to be easy. The house must meet a lot of needs - it must accommodate their extended family, but Wajid also is a local councillor, so at times he needs a public space for entertaining important guests - and to top it all they want a luxurious finish on a par with a Dubai hotel!

Their indecision about the layout is causing family disagreements and costing them money, so Piers and Kieran must act. Piers pushes them to commit to bold architectural solutions which will fit the difficult brief, whilst architectural journalist and senior curator at the V&A Kieran must scour the nation for low-cost examples of luxury. But, having got Wajid and Anam on board with a fresh vision for their home, it soon becomes clear that they don't have the final say. Wajid must also convince his brother, but their design ideas are poles apart. As money runs out and the months slip by, will this build pull them all closer together or push them apart? Show less
