This episode represents the first of two visits to this year's Home & Garden Expo, now held in September (closing on Sept 28) and benefiting the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life of Second Life. The Expo is THE showcase for builders and designers and is the high point of the design calendar. Here you can see amazing homes, furniture and accessories, and beautiful ways of populating your outdoor spaces too. The Expo is also huge - far to big to cover everyone. As a result, Saffia and Elrik have chosen just a few designers to talk to at this year's event, spread over two programmes. We'll see their latest homes and gardens, and things to go in them, and we'll get a few building hints and tips along the way.For the avoidance of potential copyright challenges, here is a list of music used in this programme.
