With foreign holidays becoming less achievable under lockdown, many Brits have chosen to indulge in the national passion for home improvement.
But high demand for building materials is leading to its own challenges for all in the DIY sector, including the end consumer.
This podcast looks at one case study – a kitchen replacement – and the measures taken to make it happen.

Born and bred in central Middlesbrough, I’ve worked in international marketing and events, with a spot of teaching here and there, for twenty years. This work has allowed me to live and travel all over the world, and fuelled my passion for seeing everything the planet has to offer, learning to speak new languages, trying loads of amazing food and drink and discovering new cultures and ways of life. I’ve also met some inspiring people and made lifelong friends along the way.
I’m using lockdown to learn new skills – so I am currently a student on the Summer University Media Production course.
Learning languages, travelling, music, making old stuff into new stuff, and living a cruelty-free lifestyle.
