Kevin meets Alan who has invented his own revolutionay way of making a house where every piece is put together on site in days.
Despite having no architectural training, former blacksmith Alan Dawson has invented his own revolutionary construction method that it is a bit like a giant Meccano set. Alan is going to make the house in pieces in his workshop, with wiring, lighting, plumbing, and even carpets built into the sections which are then to be taken to site by lorry for assembly. Within seven days the house will be up, and a few weeks later he'll be ready to move his family in.
Or so he hopes. But if the house is going to fit together as it should, every bit of it has to be designed and built with perfect precision, and only when it's time for it to be assembled on site will Alan know for sure whether his £300,000 idea works.Watch now on 4oD visit the scrapbook
