Building the Dream

Have you got big plans for the house of your dreams? But you haven't got a big enough budget to buy exactly what you want, precisely where you want it?

Presented by architectural designer Charlie Luxton, this is a series about real people striving to attain amazing yet affordable homes.

As part of the show Charlie will analyze your plans and give ideas and suggestions that could help enhance your design.

And for added inspiration and ideas there will be the opportunity to meet another self-builder who's already built their dream home.

Projects must meet the following criteria:

  • They must be a residential self build and you must be planning to live in the property on completion.
  • Be happy for Charlie to view your plans and suggest alterations
  • Planning permission is already in place.
  • You agree to be filmed on a regular basis during the build

So if you are embarking on a self-build project and aim to finish in around 12 months for less cash than it would cost to buy that property on the market, email: buildingthedream@truenorth.tv.

Your application will be received by a member of True North's production company and they will contact you directly. True North will process your personal data in accordance with their privacy policy.
