‘It’s very surreal and kind of like ‘where am I going?’ It brings a tear to my eye sometimes. I love it.’ 

In the heart of Ardee, Ireland, Nikki owns a quaint castle that sits in the middle of a busy high street – sandwiched between a pet supplies store and hair salon.

    Hatch’s Castle has four floors and is suspected to have been built by Normans when they invaded Ireland back in 1167.

    Nikki, the current Queen of the castle, lives with her daughter, Eliza – and they love to host a banquet together with their friends and family.

    ‘One would not expect a castle to be in the middle of a main street,’ Nikki said. ‘It just has a lovely, friendly, homely atmosphere – and that’s the beauty of it.’

    Dan’s cowboy-shaped boot and hat properties in Texas surely are incredible. 

    Primarily constructed with free, unwanted materials, Dan made use of covers from vinyl records, pieces of broken mirrors and even toothpaste tubes to bring his homes to life. 

    Dan said: ‘It’s absolutely pure Texas .’Both houses draw a lot of attention from the street. If you see a boot, and then you look around and you’re like ‘my lord, there’s a hat too’ – how crazy is that?’

    This 1930s grade II-listed property called The Lime Works stars in the show. The property, located in Kent, was built as a water softening plant but today it is used as a residential home with six bedrooms

    Tucked away in the stunning Alaskan wilderness, stands a tower of wooden houses stacked on top of each other – built by lawyer, Philip.

    With no blueprints and no architectural drawings, remarkably, Philip constructed the 185ft tower entirely from his own imagination.

    Philip said: ‘I think it’s the tallest free-standing living structure in the world. ‘If I were to estimate how many floors and levels it has, I’d say probably 20 to 25. 

    ‘I didn’t go above 185 foot in height, because that’s federal air space.’

    Reminiscent of something from a galaxy far, far away, Lisa has built herself a shimmering desert-dome-home in Arizona. 

    Over the course of three years, Lisa made use of four elements to perfect her quirky living quarters: earth, fire, water and air.

    ‘Some people do comment that this reminds them of Tatooine from Star Wars,’ Lisa said. ‘And I’m sure Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker would be impressed!’

    Other incredible properties in the series include a slick solar-powered pad in Portugal, a floating mansion in New York and the most fascinating industrial-chic house in the United Kingdom.

    Sam Barcroft, the CEO of Barcroft Media says that the company has already launched 15 shows on Facebook Watch over the past year and he has seen how ‘communities congregate around compelling shows’.

    He concluded: ‘Naturally we’re excited to take things to the next level with this interactive original series.’
