Terry & Olwen

Terry and Olwen built their bespoke, very individual, future-proofed home, while supporting their neighbour Lynn with hers.

They intend to retire to Graven Hill. Their build was not without drama — Terry was diagnosed with diabetes and carpal tunnel which effected what he was able do, not only for himself but for Lynn as well and tensions between the two neighbours threatened their friendship as time marched on.  As Terry and Olwen’s budget depended on them doing most of the work themselves, it could have had serious repercussions.

During the programme we heard how important the Graven Hill community has become to Terry and Olwen.  We also heard about the significance they placed on planning ahead and attention to detail. At the end of the episode we see the results of Terry and Olwen’s labours – a bespoke, future proofed, innovative, Mediterranean-blue themed home.
