In the longest revisit in Grand Designs history, host Kevin McCloud returned to a Devon eco home two decades after building work began in 1999. 

Sue and Martin began renovating two ancient barns last century to develop an eco home to live in with their two sons. They had no building plans, no site survey and planned to make up the design as they went along.
