Grand Designs S8: DVD Review

Grand Designs S8: DVD Review

Grand Designs Series 8
Rating: G
Released by Roadshow

Kevin McCloud continues his quest to follow self builds in this latest batch of Grand designs.

Basically, the series doesn't veer too much from its successful formula with McCloud usually a bit suspect of the work done within the constraints of the English weather. But with eight episodes and a variety of houses under scrutiny, there's plenty of inspiration to marvel at.

You'd have to wonder if the show's producers are running out of volunteers but it's clear within the likes of a Scandinavian style house in Cornwall and loft hidden in a field, there's plenty of ingenuity around. Inspiring and watchable, this latest series is a clear example of it's not broke, then don't fix it - except with homes and projects that need a bit of extreme DIY.

Rating: 7/10
