We love a bit of building on the telly, there are more and more programs about restoration, self build, conversion, and improvement for homes and gardens aren’t there?

One of the ones we like the best is Channel 4’s Restoration Man and here are our top 5 reasons why

  • It is presented by George Clarke
  • It delves into the history of the buildings being restored (kind of ‘meets Time Team’ stuff)
  • The people featured have a sensible budget in place
  • The time-frame for completing the project is not exaggerated – good building projects take time. Good restoration projects often take more time!
  • The projects chosen to be featured include some really interesting buildings – and this is where you come in (possibly)

Because we are such a large website for Homebuilders, Home Improvers and DIY enthusiasts the production company for Restoration Man, Tiger Aspect, have asked us to approach our users to find building projects for their next series. They are looking for restoration projects on any building that has a really interesting history or is an unusual building – think folly, dovecote, public toilet (yes public toilet – did you see that episode of Amazing Spaces?).

If you think you have just the thing to feature on the program, and you fancy your 15 minutes of fame, get in touch by contacting the Restoration Man team on 0208 222 4042 or

Good luck! Let us know if you get accepted.
