In this 3rd volume of 'Grand Designs' series 5, Kevin McCloud explores four ambitious new projects and meets the people creating their perfect homes. From restoring a 14th century castle in the Pennines to a pair of 21 st century eco-homes being built in South London, Kevin is there to offer insight and often a helping hand. In the Cambridgeshire Fens, Kevin meets a couple determined to build not just a new home, but a new self-sufficient life, whilst in Guildford, he visits a home that's an homage to Art Deco. From conception to completion, Grand Designs follows these four very different projects. Each gives a different perspective on the trials and tribulations of building your own home, but all share one thing in common... owners with determination, prepared to risk everything to live their dreams.
