Grand Designs: The Streets on ABC – Joanna and Ben are building a magnificent American ranch-style house in a gritty part of Glasgow.

Animator Joanna and carpenter Ben are a part of the regeneration of this city’s neighborhood – and bringing to it a unique vision.

Much like the buildings of the American Wild West which inspires them, Joanna and Ben’s ranch house will be made from simple materials with a structural Douglas Fir frame and clad entirely in larch with a rustic tin roof. Inside, will be an open-plan kitchen and living area with a double-height ceiling lit by a wall of glass. A handmade staircase will lead to a first floor living area and master bedroom.

But with a tight budget of £170,000, Joanna and Ben can only afford this ambitious house if they construct it themselves. The trouble is, they have never built a house before. So, with the help of their carpenter friend Craig, they begin to teach themselves the basic skills needed to build a ranch.
