Tonight’s voyeuristic peek into a homee build errs on the side of quirky, rather than grand. Host Kevin McCloud’s (right) curiosity is piqued by Welshman Nigel Hussey and his Japanese wife Tamayo’s mission to create an “authentic” Japanese sanctuary in the middle of the serene Wales countryside. To make matters even more interesting, their project doesn’t begin from scratch. Instead, they take on the challenge lenge of transforming a worn ’60s masonry house into their dream Japanese abode, complete with paper sliding walls, a tatami roomm and a Japanese bath taking in the magnificent views from the roof. A refreshing change fromm homes that are chasing the latest trends.
