Airdate: Grand Designs: The Street

Ten households on the UK’s largest self-build project create a street like no other.

Six-part series Grand Designs: The Street begins next Sunday on ABC.

Presented by Kevin McCloud, it follows the first ten pioneering households on the UK’s largest self-build project as they create a street like no other.

It’s a great opportunity, but not without risk. In the process, these pioneers will suffer injury, structural disaster and physical and financial exhaustion. The pressure of selfbuilding causes friendships to fail, and even relationships to break down. However, those who see the projects through to completion will be rewarded with beautiful homes, tailored to their needs in a ready-made community.

The pioneers, whose ages range from 24–72 and with budgets of between £160k to £500k, each have different motivations for self-building. 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.

Ep 1
Terry and Olwen and their neighbour Lynn, all three of retirement age and the most senior builders on the street, set out to create two unique, bespoke new homes.

7:40pm 6 October on ABC.
