• Short Summary

    Eccentric house and garden built by crazy Jack Punter - very cheesy.

  • Description

    Bordon, Hampshire.

    English eccentric Jack Punter has decorated his garden like a crazy grotto. Various shots of his excellent concrete sculptures and strange bits and pieces. Jack makes a concrete and stone crocodile destined to be a garden ornament. He picks up one he has made earlier and places it by his fish ponds. Jack climbs on to a stone covered bench and bends down touching his toes to show how supple he is (he's sixty six you know!). Jack's wife returns home and closes the gate - encrusted with stones. C/Us of little houses Jack has made.

    Narrator informs us that Jack was advised against building this crazy house ("do-it-yourself gone mad") by doctors due to his thrice fractured skull (!). He has done everything himself including making all the cement and carrying all the stone. Pretty cool!
