Grand Designs: The Street
Season 1  |  Episode 2  |  ABC  |  October 13, 2019

Kevin McCloud witnesses the beginnings of Britain's biggest self-build project as he charts the creation of a brand-new street. In the series we follow a group of pioneers as they build ten neighbouring properties, an epic undertaking five years in the making. Two young couples, Jack and Hannah, and James and Shannon, have been priced out of the local housing market but endeavour to get on the property ladder by opting to build their own homes. Financial issues force Jack to go scavenging for raw materials and to build much of his house using his own labour. Meanwhile, next door, James and Shannon who dream of the Good Life', are building an agriculturally inspired dwelling. But building their barn-house home pushes their relationship to breaking point.
