Grand Designs returns tonight grin, although looks like the first one is a bit of a "revisited".

ColdSancerre Wed 14-Sep-11 20:50:27

Yay! I'll be watching.

Wine in hand, loving Kevin.

That intro music makes me go all shivery!

last week they did a really old one which was of my friend's dad's house
i couldn't watch it as my tv doesn't 'do' more 4

hahaha....a year and a half!

I think it might take a bit longer than that.

ColdSancerre Wed 14-Sep-11 21:10:59

Going back to 2006, I think this will be a two baby Grand Designs.

CroissantNeuf Wed 14-Sep-11 21:18:17

It could be the first 'grandchild' Grand Designs if he insists on doing all this himself in his spare time

ColdSancerre Wed 14-Sep-11 21:45:09

So, baby 1 arrived quite rapidly after wedding. One more or 2.

I do like this design so far. Nice couple.

DH has just said " oh FFS" on hearing they are having another baby.

This is the man who is the father of 3 DC. hmm

The husband didn't exactly sound thrilled at the prospect of another baby there!! 'another one and all the extra clobber' shock

YesYes Wed 14-Sep-11 21:50:35

i certainly feel a bit better about my - up to now - four years of building extension

actually may delete this grand designs from the planner so that DP doesn't forever refer to it

'well I didn't take six years like that guy on grand designs did'

CroissantNeuf Wed 14-Sep-11 21:52:16

Blimey -Kevin was walking like a Thuderbird puppet down that path confused

Its in a beautiful setting, but OMG 5 years!

YesYes Wed 14-Sep-11 21:53:36

it is a very odd looking building though isn't
surely the original building was big enough??? well i guess clearly not

sailorsgal Wed 14-Sep-11 21:58:00

Can you imagine all the sticky hand marks on all that glass.

ColdSancerre Wed 14-Sep-11 22:01:25

I love the mill building, especially the side going over the mill pond. The middle bit makes the cottage look tiny.

ColdSancerre Wed 14-Sep-11 22:03:11

Oh and I did think they paid a very high price for a virtually derelict cottage in the first place.

YesYes Wed 14-Sep-11 22:13:25

How much did they pay? Missed that

YesYes Wed 14-Sep-11 22:15:09

No I bet they're the type of feckers that NEVER have fingerprint marks on the glass

LynetteScavo Wed 14-Sep-11 22:16:09

I think they paid over £400K for the cottage/land.

Ariesgirl Wed 14-Sep-11 22:19:53

I pointed this out to the BESH coven not long ago. Why are we moaning about not being able to conceive? All we need to do is go on Grand Designs.

ColdSancerre Wed 14-Sep-11 22:20:19

I think it was £430k

ColdSancerre Wed 14-Sep-11 22:23:56

Agree Ariesgirl, we've been trying (really quite hard) for 4 years for our first, if only we had Kevin come to look at our house every few months we'd be parents by now. But as we've only got a bog standard semi it seems that Kevin visits are unlikely to be our answer.
