the passionate eye

By: Laurie Grassi

Ever dreamed of escaping from it all and building an eco-home far from the madding crowd? Well, that's what a number of people decided to do when the town of Craik, Sask., offered up half-acre building lots for $1, with the only caveat being that the homes had to be built from scratch and the residents live off the grid with no town services. Check out what ensued Wednesday at 10 p.m. (ET/PT) on The Passionate Eye on CBC News Network in "Eco-Home Adventures." It's a tale of optimism, bad weather, enduring love, naiveté, failed romance, cynicism, more bad weather, a town that didn't know what it was getting into and people who had grossly underestimated what they had taken on. In short, a whopping good tale that will have you shaking your head with disbelief and promising yourself you'll do way more research if you ever head down a similar road... Narrated by Canadian actor and Saskatchewan native Eric Peterson.
