Terry & Olwen
Terry and Olwen have 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 is diagnosed with diabetes and carpal tunnel which effects what he is able do, not only for himself but for Lynn as well and tensions between the two neighbours threatens their friendship as time marches on. As Terry and Olwen’s budget depends on them doing most of the work themselves it could have serious repercussions.
During the programme we hear how important the Graven Hill community has become to Terry and Olwen. We also hear the significance they place 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.
