Watch the episode

It’s a renovation like no other and a gamble of a lifetime. Yorkshireman Chris couldn’t resist taking wife Angela to auction to bag himself a disused water tower in West Yorkshire, with a bargain guide price of £4,000. Up against a rival bidder, Chris ends up paying an extortionate £110,000.


With no planning permission and a flabbergasted wife, Chris battles over 6 years with planning knockbacks, spiralling costs, tight deadlines and arctic conditions to transform this eyesore landmark into a gravity-defying luxury home.

He’s roping in friend and builder John to help out, but can they transform their ambitious plans into reality?
