Having a house all your own is a big life goal for many, but is it possible to own property without getting into debt? Property expert and TV presenter Sarah Beeny insists that it is possible. She meets a number of individuals who have managed to avoid paying a mortgage by using some clever and simple tricks. In this first episode of the new series, she meets Annie from Lincolnshire who bought land for just £25,000 and built her own house there now worth £250,000. Sarah also meets Kimberley, who transforms a 100-year-old derelict Dutch barge, and Nick from Kent, who snaps up a Victorian flat pack tin chapel.
