Grand Designs: The Street

Grand Designs: the road has been a epic five years in the making. In this series, presented by Kevin McCloud, cameras follow that the 10 pioneering households that are building a brand-new street from scratch. This radical experimentation takes place in a prime location near Bicester, just 14 miles away from Oxford and under an hour from London by train. The council bought the land and instead of selling it to some developer for a fast profit, they've pre-approved outline planning and sold the public plots for year. The normal plan for each and every house is #250,000, and every household is expecting to build for under it could cost them to purchase in the region. With budgets which range to 500k, ages ranging from 24-72, and pre-approved outline preparation, each household has a freedom to express themselves in their range of construction and design procedures. Cameras will capture these constructing their homes that are distinctive -- turning into a field into a street. It's a wonderful opportunity, but maybe perhaps not without risk. From the method, these leaders will endure structural crises, injury, along with fiscal and physical fatigue. The pressure of self-building will bring about friendships and relationships. Yet will likely be rewarded with exquisite homes, tailored for their own needs.
