Grand Designs is now travelling abroad following self builders creating their dream homes in more amazing landscapes. Each episode follows the in-depth process of an ambitious design project from the initial intricacies of blue prints to the long and often arduous tasks of turning designs into practical living space. Language barriers and foreign planning laws make themselves known - particularly when one couple paint their house blue when the local council passed a ruling that all houses must be white.
Another brilliant installment in the great and very interesting Television series.I just finished veiwing this series with Kevin McCloud as the very informative host.The projects that a couple take on overseas of building their dream home and usually they do not know anything about building a house and have allsorts of problems this series is very interesting as it is building abroad in some of the most gorgeous areas and the trouble they find themselves in and can't even speak the local language but all turns out in the end with some very stunning homes in gorgeous locations .Lyn Carrum Downs
Waited a long time for this to be released but was thrilled with the DVD. Excellent series and to see it travel abroad was even better. As always Kevin is full of wit and always poo poo's the idea but loves it in the end. Kevin can speak most of the different languages and it comes in handy when he has to translate between the poor building couple and the tradesmen.
Wish there were more.
If you are familiar with Grand Designs this video is similar to the others in format, but just as enjoyable. I take pleasure in learning about new and sustainable technologies and building processes, and in seeing the true grit of those who are involved.
