Devoted viewers of Channel No. 4 the show will recognize the pair from Thorne, Doncaster, who appeared on the show in 2013.

Gwyn and Kate ap Harri were house hunting in their local area and wanted a larger garden and open-plan living space for them and their children Jac and Dylan.

What they found seemed harder to find than they thought, with properties costing up to half a million pounds, so their next option was to build the home they wanted.

The couple were determined to make their local Old Picture House their dream home, and fans are still raving about it.

When the old movie theater gets their attention, it not only has the potential to be everything they want it to be, but it also leaves a local mark.

In February 2011 the duo purchased the property for £90,000 and, after setting an initial budget of £350,000 at the time of the property’s completion in 2013, they have spent more than £100,000.

Now, with a more modern white color and wood paneling, the impressive home also features an open plan living area that connects to the garden and once housed the auditorium by means of a giant hydraulic window.

At the time, Gwyn, who runs a software company for schools, said: “We have a nice house on Queen Street, but it has a small garden, and our two boys. growing fast.

“We noticed that the old abandoned nightclub (as we knew it) was for sale, and we investigated the possibility of demolishing it and building a nice family home on the lot.”

He continued: “Yes…we’ve told a lot of people that the main reason we wanted to move out of our current house was that we wanted a bigger garden for our kids to run in. around, and that’s all right! To see ourselves doing what we’re doing is a consequence of that one thing.”

The pair enlisted the help of Gwyn’s old schoolmate Jeremy Southgate, a London-based building designer, to take on the mammoth challenge.

Then the host of Grand Design Kevin McCloud called them “brave” for deciding to put their full trust in the only designer they knew.

Two and a half years later, the risk has paid off and they’ve paid off with their dream home.

Sharing the story with their fans once again, the Grand Design team brought Instagram last year and shared a bunch of photos with their 145k followers.

Recalling the couple’s triumphant home makeover, viewers commented on the post to share their praise for the makeover.

“One of my favorites!”, said one fan while another added: “Gah!!! I remember watching this movie!! What an amazing transformation!”
