The seventh episode of Home Sweet Home with Lynda Bryans and Michael Nesbitt comes from Northern Ireland’s ‘gold coast’, Craigavad, located on the edge of Belfast Lough. Lynda and Michael also explore architectural salvage options and how these reclaimed items could spruce up your home and garden and advise on whether to go for PVC or wooden window frames.

Architectural salvage yards are an ideal place if you’re in search for a period feature to your modern house and a bargain at the same time. Lynda and Michael visit Wilson’s Yard where Geoff Wilson talks about the provenance and prices of some of the object in the yard as well as what is most in demand.

Back in the Mournes, the McCricketts are going ahead with their dream home project. Michael catches up with Gabrielle Fitzpatrick who discusses their progress and problems they are facing as they are managing the project on their own. Lastly, Lydia Wilson, a building conservationist, tells us what we all know already, wood is always better than plastics as long as you put in a bit of work. That PVC can be recycled does not mean it is actually recycled.
