Looks interesting.  Must give it a viewing, if only to find out what a "Stinking Fatberg" is  :o

It's available here on 4OD: http://www.channel4.com/programmes/kevin-mcclouds-man-made-home/4od

"Kevin starts work on his hand made home by venturing into the bowels of London. With mains electricity and gas not an option for his bolt hole, Kevin hopes to make biodiesel for a lamp from the huge stinking 'fatbergs' that clog up the city's sewers.

For the cabin's structure, Kevin cuts down two ancient oaks, and starts putting together the wooden shell of the building.

He also experiments with a Wild West technique of splitting logs by gunpowder, and tries to make the whole cabin mobile because of planning regulations."

Great show, the jacuzzi made from an old jet engine is a genius idea also his 'gas' collection system is brilliant , and those 'stinking fatbergs' although disgusting to collect turn out to be a valuable resource.
