Kevin McCloud returns with a new Man Made challenge. This time he's attempting to build his own beach getaway on the English coast, testing a basic hypothesis - is simple better? And is creating better than consuming?
Kevin sets about doubling the floor space by building a beautiful, glistening sun lounge out of recycled windows culled from lorries and aeroplanes, coming up with a crafty design that floats the windows in mid air.
Kevin's simple shed has already been transformed with the addition of a cliff top terrace and a sun room. Now Kevin plans to take his off-grid beach build to an entirely new level with a magnificent observation tower.
With the main structure of the cabin finished, Kevin wants to improve his quality of life and introduce a few of life's little luxuries, with his very own solar-powered hot-water shower and a floating beach-bar.
