MMmmm I didn't like this weeks project much - I mean all that gorgeous scenery and most of the windows were way up high! It struck me as quite a depressing building. It was nice inside but I am not a fan of open plan living either. A job well done though!
The one in France last week - that was magic!

I wasn't massively enamoured wiuth this one either. I really didn't like the grey of the stone and it just didn't seem warm or homely enough for me. I have pretty much been throughout this series, so far. This one just didn't do it for me.
Anyone remember the one on a hill up north (nr Leeds, I think?). It was a massive converted waterworks, the couple did pretty much everything themselves and the result was magnificent ! It was really open plan but it still had a comfortable homely feeling about it. I think that's one of my favourite ones.

Didrn;t like that waterworks one - thought it cold and uninviting - thought the one that couple did the other week in Italy was great though - the artist who literally built the place himself with his wife and family and friends!!
Thought this one was a bit un honely sort o - couldn;t imagine living there or bringing up children there but it was nice looking and rather impressive if thats what you like!!

the waterworks is definitely my top favourite. what a fabulous place and they worked sooooooo hard, all credit to them.
There are loads that I quite like but one that sticks in my mind, not sure I would have done it but there was a house, I think it was in Edinburgh and it was surrounded by flats. It was an old delapidated house which the couple sympathetically restored (sound like an estate agent) on the outside, but on the inside they just created one bedroom upstairs with a rail going round. Anyone remember that one? I quite liked the one last night though I wasn't that keen on the kitchen tbh. It's a shame they didn't show more of it.

Don't think it's showing off in the slightest, he can speak french so it's natural that he should do so to french people! I think he's a great presenter and I love this prog so much. I missed Wed's but it sounded gorgeous.
my all time favourite was the bloke who lived in teh forest and built his home out of wood.
