- Grand Designs last night- anyone watched?
I watched it on Wednesday and really wasn’t keen. I thought the outside ultimately didn’t look that historical, and the inside was just not very homely at all. There were a couple of points in the middle where the wife seemed rather miffed with the whole undertaking… And I thought it funny that at no stage did they mention the neighbours’ house, less than 100m away. They must have been raight miffed with the building for 2 years…Posted 9 years ago
There were ‘deadspots’ that I thought the Architects could have utilised better and the stairway was hidieous. It would have been better going for a standard lookatusmodern glass walkway and in parts it definitely looked like a vistors centre but the back living area was mental! Get some creeping vines growing on the frontage and it will be stunning. I was utterly cringing at the begining- some foundations above ground level etc and thought the programme was going to be a car-wreck of ‘we are trying to extend a loan/mortgage etc’.Posted 9 years agovinnyehSubscriber
Like justa I thought the waterworks was a fantastic effort by a couple who knew nothing and had bugger all money when they started out. It was the first episode I saw and set my expectations of what the show was about- sadly too many episodes have been about throwing pots of cash at a pile of bricks or stones.Posted 9 years agoNZColSubscriber
I seemto have become addicted to Location Location…i saw one last night with this guy that looked like, well I dunno really, pointy Jimmy Hill chin, weird wife, odd relationship, eco-loonie but actualyl seemed to be doing it more for attention. They ended up buying a mess with a rooted water wheel and a pad in brighton for his bum mates to come round and molest him while his wife video taped it*
Anyway, i hate architects, especially my architects who seem to have taken our budget and accidentally designed somethign that could possibly be built with a following wind for almost double. Somehow they fail to see the error of their ways. Maybe we should go on Grand Designs…..

Agree 100% with the above posts – the guy in the forset and the couple in the water works were the only ones which weren’t annoying.
It’s just an unbelievably formulaic and repetitive show which 9 times out of 10 is just bankers, architects and the like throwing money at vanity projects which invariably results in some modernistic, austere, clinical Bauhaus-esque w**k fests. Which of course Mcloud loves. Sickens my sh*t.Posted 9 years ago
