‘Given the chance of building a permanent treehouse as your home, well, you would, wouldn’t you?’ asks host Kevin McCloud. And, to be honest, before watching what John and Noreen build we would have said, ‘Not really, thanks, Kevin.’ But… wow! This build is really special.
The couple bought half an acre of woodland in the middle of the town of Dursley, Gloucestershire. They were told they’d never get planning permission – they did – and had such strict building restrictions it seemed impossible.
But through immense hard work and passion somehow they built a floating home, high up in the trees, that will take your breath away.
