OH, what you can do with a bit of imag­i­na­tion.

The sea­son pre­miere of this twopart se­ries checks in on a Syd­ney cou­ple who bought a tiny, 7 x 6m block of land in Syd­ney’s Surry Hills with the plan to make the most of the space by build­ing up.

They built across four storeys – one for the garage and laun­dry, one for the main bed­room and en­suite, an­other for the liv­ing room and the fourth for the kitchen and din­ing.

It was an am­bi­tious project made even more dif­fi­cult by a tight bud­get, the need for coun­cil per­mits and road clo­sures and try­ing to fit build­ing equip­ment onto a small space.

Two years af­ter the un­usual home’s com­ple­tion, Peter Mad­di­son is back to check how the cou­ple have been en­joy­ing their in­ven­tive pad.

Hear­ing from the cou­ple about what they’d change about the home is in­ter­est­ing and pry­ing into such a quirky home is also fas­ci­nat­ing.
