Home Grown Homes
There are over 6,000 people homeless in this country and many of them are on housing waiting lists for years.
The challenge for many county councils is that there is a shortage of houses available for them to use for housing list clients.
Home Grown Homes is a a new house building scheme hopes to change the way we think of house build.
Architect Dominic Stevens who is involved in this project joined us this morning.
