Grand Designs: The Street
6 x 50 mins
Grand Design: The Street has been an epic five years in the making. In this six-part series, presented by Kevin McCloud, we follow the first 10 pioneering households on the UK’s largest self-build project.
It’s a great opportunity, but not without risk. In the process, these pioneers will suffer injury, structural disasters and physical and financial exhaustion. The pressure of self-building will cause friendships to fail, and relationships to break down. However, those who see the projects through to completion will be rewarded with beautiful homes, tailored to their needs, on a street like no other in the UK.
Pioneers all have different motivations to build, their ages range from 24-72, budgets from £160k to £500k. Over the course of the series, cameras witness these intrepid self-builders constructing their unique homes – turning a field into an extraordinary Self-Built Street.
