UK pubcaster Channel 4 has ordered two home building series from Windfall Films for its digital television platform More4.

Impossible Builds (pictured) is an eight-part series that explores how home “kits” are helping home owners build their dream properties in remote locations across the UK.

In each episode, architectural designer Charlie Luxton and commercial designer Aidan Keane meet families pushing boundaries to build their homes on plots ranging from a rugged island to a remote, cliff-top perch. The series uses augmented reality, CGI animations and drone photography to chart each home build and reveal its ingenious engineering.

Impossible Builds is executive produced by Windfall Films’ creative director Carlo Massarella andis  series produced and directed by Johnny Shipley. Channel 4′s David Sayer commissioned the series for More4.

The second season of Windfall Films’ My Floating Home returns to More4, featuring host Mark Evans meeting pioneering homebuilders who head to the waters to live. The 8 x 60-minute series explores the design and construction challenges involved when living on the water.

My Floating Home is executive produced by Windfall Films’ creative director, Massarella and series produced by Clare Fisher. The series was commissioned by Channel 4′s Sayer for More4.
