British television series which features unusual and often elaborate architectural homebuilding projects.
Following the work of Ed and Rowena Waghorn as they continue to build a handcrafted, five-bedroom house on an eight acre smallholding in Herefordshire, 10 years in the making. Progress on the build was slow as Ed decided to do most of the work himself, and after four years the house was still a shell. Now, years later, is it possible this house may finally become a medieval masterpiece?
Over many series of Grand Designs, Kevin McCloud has seen the vision and commitment of couples culminate in the creation of their ideal home. From houses made made of straw bales and built in 6 days, to one embedded into its wooded landscape and another integrated with a landmark water tower, the projects have been unique, incredibly ambitious and ultimately inspirational. But have they stood the test of time? And did they fulfil the promises and dreams their owners had strived so relentlessly for? By request, this DVD revisits 8 projects, some ten years on, to answer those key questions.
