are there (almost) never polish builders shown?

it's soooo difficult to convert barns (or other large spaces) well. have only seen one on gd so far (the one with the wasp nest bedroom).

It's going to be huge.

It must be so stressful to be constantly trying to demonstrate how different you are.

Oh, she's different all right Tough.

Hideous!

God that is ugly!

DH says it looks like something Steptoe and Son would be proud of.

gawd I don't get this house. Must have cost an arm and a leg but just looks horrible to live in. They seem nice but why all the crap and clutter? And can't anything be finished? Makes me feel a bit unhappy. Bet Kev loves it.

They don't seem to have much humour. They take themselves soooo seriously.

loving the model of the barn made from photos!

WipsGlitter Wed 28-Nov-12 21:52:58

Working artists? Making tat. All bankrolled by mummy and daddy I'd guess given it was their barn.

She's so cliched she is conventional!

drjohnsonscat Wed 28-Nov-12 21:53:10

she's embedding her creativity in the countryside which leaves her with a kitchen with no lights. Blaardy artists.

I'm unconventional! I'm unconventional! I'm unconventional! I'm unconventional! I'm unconventional! I'm unconventional! I'm unconventional! I'm unconventional! I'm unconventional! I'm unconventional!I'm unconventional! I'm unconventional! I'm unconventional!

For a second I thought the little girl on roller skates was the woman.

The two concrete silos at the end look awful.

Is that a wolf print tshirt?

MousyMouse Wed 28-Nov-12 21:57:59

the collections are stuff from nightmares

msrisotto Wed 28-Nov-12 21:58:01

They're just going to fill it up with crap.

msrisotto Wed 28-Nov-12 21:58:41

More crap...

MousyMouse Wed 28-Nov-12 21:59:51

ui, next week is a really old revisited...

thenightsky Wed 28-Nov-12 21:59:58

AndIf well spotted, that certainly looked like a wolef t-shirt grin

MousyMouse Wed 05-Dec-12 21:17:26

waiting for the 'reveal'

AndIfATenTonTruck Wed 05-Dec-12 21:40:39

Ooh, we're watching a different Kevin show in 4od. It's like George Clarke recently did with his caravan on Amazing Spaces, but it's much more blokey, engineery and funny.

Revisit the community project made me cry.
Mixture of fedupness, jealousy and hormones probably
