A grand de­sign it isn’t. In fact, it’s more of a shed. But Kevin McCloud’s d’s plan to make a cabin by hand from his stand of trees, or source it from some­one else’s rub­bish is a grand idea. McCloud ( right) has found him­self a piece of wood­land, and plans to re- use, re­cy­cle, and hand- make ma­te­ri­als for his shed- style re­treat. Warn­ing: don’t watch this one over din­ner. Tonight, he starts work on his project by ven­tur­ing, lit­er­ally, into the bow­els of Lon­don - look­ing for a way to make biodiesel from waste in the city’s sewer, as elec­tric­ity and gas aren’t an op­tion. More palat­able is his use of two oak trees on the prop­erty to start on the build­ing. How­ever, his trial of us­ing gun­pow­der to spilt the logs is jolt­ing, to say the least.
