    Nice design – doing it on the cheap has to end in tears though.

    this one is going to go really well. The give away was there old house, also their sunglasses give a certain impression. Which bit of sustainability includes concrete.

    It may not be a classic but you never know.

    Yuk, these 2 make my skin crawl. They’re SO **** hip with their inhospitable Eisenman box.

    Eisenmann? Where’s the dislocations, the column through the middle of the stair case, the slot in the floor dividing the double bed?

    agree – the whole ‘i can live with out being surounded material possestions’ but will only wear designer sunglasses makes me instantly dislike them.

    Eco house that involves flying to Latvia to see the windows made… 🙄

    Well I’m disliking them because of their ‘eco’ house being made from extremely non-eco materials.

    It’s OK, she’s in marketing. I don’t think she understands what “eco” is.

    Eisenman, as in, making the users adapt to the building so they begin to notice/appreciate the design more. Harsh for the sake of being so, confronting the user. It’s needy. Obviously not wall for wall.

    I wonder if they are going to finish that plywood kitchen? By which I mean apply a finish to the wood.

    What is it with the plywood?

    Urgh!

    Well I definitely do not like the exterior. It looks like two shipping containers.

    I like the glass, but it doesn’t work on such a small scale. It’s been said, from a distance it looks like a shipping container.

    From all that up there ^ seems my not watching it was the right decision. It was their sunglasses and the insufferable bolleaux they came out with in the first couple of minutes that did it for me.

    I really don’t think I’d like to live in it. I can appreciate the craftsmanship of it all, but as an art piece not a home.

    You’d have to be obsessively tidy to make it work.

    Oh dear, dunt look good. Ticks all the boxes for advertising exec+architect stereotypes. For that reason, I’m out!

    I agree with molgrips. The craftsmenship is fantastic.

    But boy is that house fugley.

    Bet the neighbours were less than impressed. Who on earth passed its planning permission, it just looks so out of place on that street.

    Seriously, garage door, garage door, big glass factory, garage door. Planners should not have let that through imo.

    Just watching it on + 1 and I have to say she is one of the most annoying women that have ever been on there. Don’t like the house either. Not sure how ‘eco’ it is with all that concrete used to build it.

    Pretentious idiot. But quite liked some of the design.

    Just watching the last few minutes of it.

    Two thoughts.

    1, The house makes me shudder, I hate every aspect of it and what it represents

    2, I can’t decide if I would slap her or run away very fast. She is terrifying. Uncle Kev obviously agrees as he hasn’t made her pregnant like most other ladies on the show.

    But, they are pleased so good luck to them.

    Concrete using boiler ash, AFAIK, it’s very sustainable.

    If family 1 shed moved in

    5 mins = ruffled

    1 hour = messy

    1 day = lived in

    1 week = a big messy home full of love

    It’s crying out for it. 😆

    I liked the office space on wheels (and most of the rest of the interior), quite tempted to build one for the workshop, it’d have to motorised though

    So, stw-ers in patronising, narrow minded and scared of things they don’t understand shocker.
    Come on guys, show us what you’re made of so that some of us can call you mentally ill. Oh 😉
