A LOCAL man who appeared on a popular home improvement programme after transforming a circus wagon into a quirky living space could be doing it all again.

Frankie Lord from Penn could be back on George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces soon – this time with an overhauled portion of a Boeing 737.

Frankie was on Amazing Spaces in January having spent the better part of five months repurposing a circus wagon to a tiny home on wheels with help from girlfriend Olivia and best pal Philip.

Now the farmer-turned-carpenter has his sights set on turning the front end of an aeroplane owned by DHL and used for training to a habitable living space.

He discovered the Boeing 737 cockpit and nose section while scrolling through Facebook Marketplace looking for a new project. It had been sat in Colnbrook for 20 years.

He and school friend Philip Reed have also recently finished a second circus wagon, which he is going to sell.

Frankie said he was bitten by the renovation bug during his first circus wagon project which also featured a golden throne over the toilet after host George Clarke suggested it.

He added George Clarke has expressed interest in the Boeing project, which could kick off in May and last five months.

“This is actually the next project we’re moving on to now,” said Frankie. “The plan is to convert it into the next living space.

“It’s safe to say that I caught the renovation bug since being on George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces – and I have just finished the second circus wagon with my oldest school friend, Philip Reed. That’snow available for sale.

“We were pondering what our next project may be, a tree house, an old conversion, when one day whilst scrolling through Facebook Marketplace, this aeroplane came up.

“It’s the front end of a Boeing 737, and was owned by DHL as a training module. It had been sat at the DHL base in Colnbrook for the past 20 years relatively untouched.

“The George Clarke team have expressed interest in following the build. If that’s the case, we will start on May 20 and have a five-month build time limit.”
