Summary When Pru and Richard Irvine came across a plot of land in the middle of the breathtakingly beautiful Midlothian countryside, they seized the opportunity to build on it a bespoke family home. However, the plot, an old industrial site complete with lime kilns, came with a condition. They could only build on it if they became custodians of the kilns, and more importantly, that the house blend in to its setting. Pru and Richard wanted to build a large uncompromisingly modern house. There was a real danger that this building would be a blot on the landscape rather than an enhancement. With Richard grafting hard to pay for the build, it was left to Pru, a cookery writer, to project manage the build. The finished house was an impressive piece of architecture but certainly did not blend into the landscape. A year and a half later, Kevin returns to see how this big house is settling in and whether it fulfilled its brief. PRODUCTION DETAILS Written and presented by Kevin McCloud.
