Grand Designs: The Street

Grand Designs: The Street has been a epic five years in the making. In this six-part show cameras follow that the initial 10 pioneering households who are creating a brand-new street from scratch, on what will ultimately be the UK job. This ground-breaking experiment takes place at a prime location near Bicester, just 14 miles away from Oxford and under an hour from London by train. The council bought the property from the MOD, and in the place of attempting to sell it to some programmer for a profit, they've pre-approved outline planning and sold plots into the general public for . The average budget for each and every house is 250,000, and every household would be expecting to build for less than it might cost them to buy in the region. With ages ranging from 24-72, budgets ranging from 160k to 500k, along with outline planning, each household includes the liberty to express themselves in their range of design and construction methods. Cameras may capture these building their unique domiciles -- turning a field to a street. It's really a great opportunity, however not without risk. From the act, these leaders will endure from injury, structural crises fatigue. The pressure of self-building may result in connections, and friendships to neglect. People who view the projects through to end will probably be rewarded with amazing homes, tailored to their own requirements.
