This series follows the trials and tribulations of Australians restoring buildings to their former glory. As host Sibella Court follows the restoration process, she showcases the amazing Aussie battlers working to restore these heritage buildings to give them a new life and create a new home for themselves.
|S01E01||Keith Hall||01/09/2015||Built in 1885 by a stone mason from Aberdeen, Keith Hall is no more than a pile of granite. Clay is planning to rebuild the original building, manhandling the stone blocks entirely on his own.|
|S01E02||Woodcot Park||08/09/2015||Attempting to leave the ghosts of the Kinglake fires behind them, Jo and Marcus bought Woodcot Park. They find that they have taken on not only a restoration but also the ghost of the original Scottish owner.|
|S01E03||Harrington Street||15/09/2015||The little shop in Harrington Street is one of the oldest timber buildings left in Hobart. Vacant and derelict, it has been the victim of two arson attacks. To avoid demolition, owners Haydn and Penny need to act. We join Hadyn and Penny in their fight to save the building. They plan to recreate the shop and restore the living area above as their main residence. What we will witness is an incredible commitment to heritage and appreciation for detail as they balance what is left of the building with what they can source. But is this shop really capable of restoration? And will Penny ever get a proper kitchen?|
|S01E04||Gervasoni Homestead||22/09/2015||Marnie and Dale dream of converting the beautiful Gervasoni Homestead into a unique family home. The original owner, Carlo Gervasoni came seeking gold in 1852 but instead started a dairy business selling milk, butter and other products to the gold miners. He built this group of buildings from the local stone. Over two years, it’s Marnie and Dale’s plan to restore first the black smithy, then ‘grannies’ cottage, which they will progressively live in, before they restore the two story stone house in the third year. With their new baby, Gilly, they initially move into a caravan on site. Winter is approaching. Has the romance of these beautiful buildings gone to their heads, and do they have the skills and dedication to complete this restoration?|
|S01E05||Emmaville||29/09/2015||Is the cottage Emmaville the long lost birth place of legendary bush poet and composer of ‘Waltzing Matilda’, Banjo Patterson? Whether it is or isn’t, this cottage is one of the oldest in the colony and the unique style of architecture should be saved. Luckily, the locals have banded together under the leadership of Reg to save it from demolition and restore it to its original glory. With the cottage precariously sited on the edge of footy oval and under threat from developers, the community must rally together and act quickly, lifting and transporting it to a new resting place, next to the city’s botanic garden. However, the clock is already ticking as the restoration needs to be completed in time to celebrate Banjo’s 150th Birthday, only a year away.|
|S01E06||Keera Vale||13/10/2015||Keera Vale is one of the oldest properties in the Wollongong area. Built in 1843 for Judge Therry, the building has been unloved and butchered by many succeeding owners and requires major restoration. But this hasn’t deterred Jen and Harold. These two fell in love with the ‘house on the hill’ and their impetuous move to buy it may indeed be a case of ‘love is blind’. The house, made of crumbling convict bricks, has many surprises in store for the pair. Jen is passionate and dynamic, Harold is a born builder and nothing will stop them fulfilling their dream of restoring and living in Keera Vale with their family. With a big mortgage, Harold has taken long service leave to do most of the work himself. But living in this house with their four children, is going to put their passion and patience to the test.|
|S01E07||Holowiliena||20/10/2015||Established in 1853 by the Warwicks, Holowiliena is the only remaining pastoral property in Australia held by the original family. Many of the original settlers’ buildings are also still standing, but they are in desperate need of restoration. These days Frances and her husband Luke assist her father, Richard Warwick, in the running of the property. But with two families to feed, and a property on the edge of marginal land, they are looking for ways to make ends meet. Restoring the buildings built by their forebears could hold the key to protecting their unique history and also to securing the family’s long term future. But without the finances or skills, Frances needs help and she finds it in a unique ‘Construction Industry Training Scheme’, run by English stone mason Keith McAllister.|
