Whoop whoop! The brand new trailer for the show Mr M and I have been working on has gone live and I couldn’t be more excited to finally see some of the green screen action everyone’s been talking about!
We’ve been beavering away behind the scenes, racing up and down the motorway working with the homeowners, builders and our two very talented architects Robert Jamison and Laura Clark to turn all the virtual reality filmed last summer into bricks and mortar reality. There are fifteen ambitious builds all at different stages and 15 brilliant couples who couldn’t decide what to do with their renovation projects – until they got involved with the show! The idea is that the couples choose from two incredible VR proposals, actually see their homes brought to new life and transformed into something they’d never imagined.
When we got involved last summer all the VR action had already been filmed so to see it on the trailer is pretty awesome, but I can’t wait to see the whole episodes. How does this happen eh? Mr M and I get the dust, the site visits, the mud and the cleaning…. and Robert, Laura and host Angela Scanlon get the glamour!
Now you see why I haven’t been blogging much. With sites as far afield as Stirling, Margate and Wiltshire, I’ve kinda had my hands full – on top of our own reno work still pootling along at Moregeous HQ of course. It’s all too easy to feel guilty about what you don’t do isn’t it, but I’m having to check myself and this fabulous little trailer is a reminder of what we have been doing.
Righto, off to do a viewing on one of the rentals, check Dave the Carpenter’s new boxing off in the Daddy Dormer and pick up something for tea. I’ve a feeling we’ll be back on the road again this week…
Hi! I really looking forward to this it looks amazing
Thanks Tisha, I can’t wait to see it too!
How do I apply
Hi Pamela! If we get a second series, I’ll put it on the blog, keep watching 🙂 x
We have watched the 2 episodes and have been blown away. This is an amazing program and if you are looking for more participants we would love to be a part. We are looking at re organising our house but we are lost already.
Hi Sue, there are lots more ideas on the episodes coming up. I’m delighted you are inspired. Follow the blog here and I’ll let you know if there’s a second series x
I love this show I am just about to complete on a property that is a renovation project with lots of potential. How do I apply.
We don’t yet know if it will be re-commissioned for a second series – I will put it on my blog if so though!
Hi, could you do a 2 bedroom terrace house .
Do apply if we get a second series Jennifer – fingers crossed!
Would love to have the opportunity for our house, which has huge potential, to take part in the next series
Follow the blog here Tim & I’ll let you know if we get a 2nd series – then you can apply! Thanks for watching 🙂
The programme was awesome, I would love my house to be redesigned.
Hopefully we’ll get a 2nd series & you can apply! Thanks for watching Ann!
Who were the builders in Faversham?
They are called Broadstairs Builders, ask for Glenn x
My son would love to be on your show
If we get a second series I’ll let you know on here!
All the houses seem to be detached properties where there is room to extend. Is there also going to be a transformation of a terraced house ?
There absolutely will be Angela! In fact, watch out for episode 4, and then several more in later shows 🙂 Thanks for watching!
One of the best shows I’ve watched in a while! Fantastic projects and love the VR aspect.
I hope that series 2 ties in with my parents’ house remodelling!
Thanks Shireen! We don’t yet know if it will be re-commissioned for a second series – I will put it on my blog if it is 🙂
I would like to apply I think you could do wonders for our family. Have tried for years and never been inspired by what we have been presented and wasted so much money.
Having seen this series so far I’m feeling inspired again to move things on.
That’s great to hear YHMP has inspired you 🙂
Hi, my 26 year old son has cerebral palsy and is in the process of purchasing a property in which will need to be adapted to meet his disability needs. It will be their ‘Forever Home’ so needs to be ageing friendly too. The plan is to have the main house adapted for the family home, build 2 houses for his carers, build a therapy suite including a hydrotherapy pool and, if planning permission is achieved, convert the stables to accommodation and sell it off to mitigate some of the costs of the build. He has completed a Masters in architecture and wishes to use his ‘Forever Home project for RIBA Part 3 so he can gain the professional qualification of Architect. Would the programme be interested in such a project? He is one amazing young one.
Hi Lin, I’m unsure that YHMP is the right show for you and your son, but there are lots of others which might be more appropriate. Our show deals with couples who can’t agree on what to do on their house. I wish you and him the best of luck with it. Sian
So the virtual reality aspect to this really makes this show stand out as its really high quality virtual reality unlike how they used to be when redesigning our kitchen. It really seems to lend itself to being a bit bolder with decisions so that people can remove the feeling that they might regret their choice….love it! I will keep an eye out as would love to apply to get on the second series – will have to start saving the money now though!
It definitely makes people braver when they can ‘see’ the end result! Thanks for watching Shona!
Wow, there are so many great ideas, I would love to be on he show.
I’ll let you know on here if we get a second series Pamela 🙂
My husband and I have been talking about extending our home since we moved in over 11 years ago. We must have done a hundred different designs and still come up with new ideas about every month 😂
We need help please!
Fingers crossed for a second series & you can apply 😉
We’d love to be on the any second series that you do as our home is in desperate need of a re-design to make it work better, we’ve had plans drawn for extending upstairs but believe downstairs could be so much better!
Keep watching out, if we get a second series, you could apply! Thanks for watching 🙂
Brilliant Program loved the first 2 episodes. I wish i had seen this advertised as the wife and I have been dithering for over 2 years now on how we want to renovate our Bungalow. We did get an architect round but he just didn’t seem to be on the same page and wanted to put a standard Box on the back.
We have a large plot with options to extend on three sides and upwards so were looking for something slightly more inspirational.
Your two architects seem to really listen to the clients and exceed their expectations.
Really hope you get a second commission and we can apply.
I very much doubt we will agree on a way forward before then. 🙂
You have filled my life with hope , for my empty nest once was bungalow now five bedroom house – I want my pride in my home again – Please May I go on your HELP list – . Your ratings must be through the roof.😉🥳. Architects restoring lives . Please let me know how we can apply for second series .
Hi there Amanda! Ih that’s super to hear, fingers crossed for another series then eh!! x
I love this show!! My partner and I are obsessed!!
We are expecting twins and already have a little one and this show is inspiring us to look at doing a 2 storey extension for more family space and bedrooms other than move home!!
Fingers crossed for series two so we can apply!!
Ha, hi Lucie, that’s great to hear. Another set of five episodes later this summer, keep watching. I’m going to do some posts on the different questions raised, pop back to the blog or follow. Fingers crossed for another series x
Hi.. First off what a fantastic show… Bit disappointed that it wasn’t on this evening, 22nd May or were only 5 episodes filmed?… If a 2nd season is commissioned, why wouldn’t it be as it’s such a fantastic idea, I’d love the opportunity to see if our home is suitable…
Hi there, and thanks for watching and enjoying! Yes, we filmed several more, and there’s another five on later in summer. You will love the rest too I’m sure. Follow me at the blog here here for details 🙂
Is that the end of series 1 already? Hope not..a.m. really addicted to the show!
No Julie, worry not, there’s more later this summer. Another 10!! Sian x
I’m loving the programme and it is inspiring me greatly for my own home. I wondered how I can find details of where things are sourced from on the programme. I loved the kitchen cabinets in episode 5 and really want them in my house, can you let me know where I can find them?
I really need your help me to remodel my home. It’s a semi. When is your next series starting.
Fingers crossed we get another series Madhini and then you can apply! Watch this space 🙂
I thought there were more than 5 episodes. We met with Janet who came up with ideas for our house before the program came out and it sounded great. The series was really helpful, we are incorporating the cargo net idea. I hope it gets a second series.
There are more coming up this year Lee, worry not 😉 Thanks for your lovely comment! Sian
Well then, after reading all the comments and seeing 5 episodes so far I dragged my sons and niece to the tv room to watch property programs as they know I watched them all and they loved it (they would not pick a property show to watch)but yours is on a different level and not for me so I took second seat and let them see what we can do for our children.
I think your next series should be all about parents and children! Our children can’t afford to buy their own place so my suggestion is that we start to modify/create houses to keep our children in and not kick them out when they get older. All about keeping families together, giving their own space but having a space for the family to have dinner together, watch TV together or just doing their own thing but in our parents eyes reach.
I could go on and on so hope you got my message.Rogeria
How do I get in contact with the female architect please?
Laura can be contact at Lamp Architects, based in London and Glasgow 🙂
just watched episode 6 in St Albans. fantastic designs and the end build was amazing. who are the builders?
Hi Is there any news on a second series yet? I would love to apply.
