Are you about to begin, or part-way through, converting a historic building into a private home? Windfall Films is making a brand-new series, Building Historic Homes, and is looking to follow people turning old buildings of historic interest - mostly those not intended for residential use - into private dwellings.

In his brand new series for Channel 4, George Clarke will help maverick buyers turn buildings not previously intended for domestic use into extraordinary homes.
Because of the way we now work and shop, many commercial and industrial buildings have shut down and are all too often left empty or abandoned. To breathe life back into them we need to convert them into homes for the future, and thanks to more relaxed planning regulations, it's becoming easier.
If you have bought a building that sounds right for George's new show and would like help turning it into a unique home, then please send contact details and a brief summary to or call 0207 819 0500
