In this brand-new series of Grand Designs, Kevin McCloud accompanies more determined people on the road to realising the dream of building their own home. As ever Kevin will follow each build from dream to reality as each family contends with contractors, money worries and the elements. Nerves and patience are tested but as always Kevin is on hand with sage advice, reassurance and his famously arch reactions to these ever bolder, Grand Designs.
Kevin McCloud said: ‘We’ve squeezed the juice out of the plumpest of British architectural fruit to bring you the 2018 series – and, as ever, explored areas of design and self-build that we’ve never investigated before, from what it takes to build a healthy, toxin-free home to the perils of turning an ancient ruined folly into a home. The usual ambitious, crazy, wholesome fare that makes Grand Designs what it is.’
Cal Turner, Executive Producer for Boundless said: ‘We’re delighted that Grand Designs is back for 2018 with more incredible stories that document the reality of the highs and lows of building your own home.’
Grand Designs is produced by Boundless (part of the FremantleMedia UK). It was commissioned by Ian Dunkley, Factual Entertainment Commissioning Editor, Channel 4. Boundless’ Executive Producer is Cal Turner and Boundless’ Series Producer is John Lonsdale.
