On Grand Designs, they had a small piece of land near a mainline railway and a busy A road in Billinghurst that was first seen in 2021.
Half of the land could not be build on due to an underground sewer and all they had to work with was a small triangle of land and an £190,000 budget.
As the Channel 4 show returned to the location, designer Kevin, 64, was eager to find out about one particular unfinished feature.
When the couple were first introduced on TV, Olaf purchased a whole double decker bus in a late night shopping spree.

The carpenter chose the vehicle which was initially in use in Birmingham, and he wanted to turn it into his workshop.
Kevin was initially confused, however Olaf admitted it helped to solve the space issue as they couldn’t build on top of the sewer and it gave him much needed space.
His wife Fritha admitted it was a “drunken eBay purchase”, that cost them £2600.
His ideas never came to fruition as the first episode aired on British TV screens.
Since the,n the project was far from smooth-sailing as he had to tear down a fence and this in turn formed a traffic jam.
When he returned to the property, the TV presenter was left shocked at the result as he explained the red vehicle had been, “inventively reborn.”
He exclaimed: “Blimey! You have everything you need. There are big spaces.”
The carpenter told the star that this was the first time he ever had a ‘dedicated’ workshop space for his carpentry work.
