Whether it’s incurring a mountain of debt or a tidal wave of problems, some couples on the show have been bitten by the so-called curse.

tuttavia, that’s isn’t the case for everyonethere are some who have brought their dream home to life and made it through to the other side.

One of those successful projects saw Iain and Jenny Shillady move their young family of four from Edinburgh to the countryside in September last year.

A 150-year-old bothy and a walled garden at Rumbling Bridge near Kinross had caught their eye.

Built in the late 19th century, their children described it as something out of a Beatrix Potter story.

Iain, an architect, and Jenny, a marketing manager, transformed the property by adding a state-of-the-art extension for £400,000, which ended up being £50,000 over budget.

All'inizio, presenter Kevin McCloud said he was worried that the new structure woulddestroy the beauty of the garden” – but he couldn’t have been more wrong.

The build was hit by the pandemic that saw progress stall for ten weeks of their 11-month build.

Through the pandemic and replacing the bothy’s rotten roof, the project was completed, with the family moving in soon afterwards.

After its competition, Kevin couldn’t help but be taken aback by the finished home and called itexquisite” – eating his words in the process.
