My latest Obsession!!

I am obsessed with the tv show Grand Designs on Foxtel lately.
I can't get enough!

The program follows people as they build their own houses. I just love seeing plans turn into a home. I get all caught up emotionally with them when they go over budget and stress with them over building delays and I am so happy for them when it is all over and they have their house!

Some of the gorgeous houses include this stunning Queenslander in Southport.

This home in Cottage Point.

This house on the Victorian coast.

This home in Fish Creek.

This home in the Victorian bush.

So do you watch it?
They also do a Grand Designs UK which I watch too.

Building is such an emotional experience and I have yet to see one that went exactly to plan.
Even so, I would love to do it myself again.

How about you?


  1. I l-o-v-e the UK Grand Designs but haven't watched much of the Aussie one yet. Yes, totally agree. It is amazing to watch the process and sometimes a bit stressful too! Yep, would definitely build again...

  2. Yes I love that show but have only been watching the UK version. We so need to get Foxtel.... ;-)

  3. Oh you left out the Sydney "small house" lol ;).

    Love the cottage point one.

  4. I love this show too but I seem to keep missing it! We finished building our new home in August and I loved the process and strangely, everything did go to plan (we had an awesome builder). Quite a few people have asked if there's anything we'd change and the answer is always no! If I ever have the opportunity to build again, I'd do it in a heartbeat!

  5. I've seen a couple of episodes and yes the process is truly amazing. I end up feeling envious though :(

  6. I have been obsessed with the British one for years now :) Love the Aussie ones too ♥

  7. I LOVE Grand Designs its my fav show but I've only seen the UK one, can't wait till the Aussie one go onto freetoair. And yes I'm the same, I get all caught up, and when the owners start off all cocky like 'Yes we're going to finish on X-date and come in on budget' then glen and I just look at each other and shake our heads as it NEVER goes to plan but still looks like the most life changing experience.

  8. It's a wonderful show. Have you watched the UK version, I just love Kevin McCloud's manner. I would definitely renovate again and I would LOVE to do a new build one day. Rachaelxx
