Grand Designs: Bedfordshire couple build ‘modernist pavilion’

Channel 4’s hit architecture show Great designs sees ambitious people build their dream family home, and this week’s episode is no different.

In the first week of the new series, Manchester couple Colin and Adele learned the hard truths and the do’s and don’ts of building their own curved glass mansion.

Their decision to use cheaper foreign labor resulted in the couple’s project being more expensive than they had planned.

Meanwhile, last week Tunbridge Wells residents Kate and Rob replaced their dilapidated post-war prefab that survived forever and took much longer than expected.

The couple lacked confidence when it came to construction, so they decided to commission a prefab home that was built in a factory and delivered to the site in the back of a truck.

The couple was able to build their home on a budget and even won the title of Fastest Build Ever Featured on Grand Designs.

Well this week Bedfordshire couple John and Helen see a ‘modernist pavilion’.

A Bedfordshire couple takes on £1.3million Modernist home for Grand Designs

Ex-racehorse breeder John is planning to build a high-tech home that will promise him and his wife Helen, a retired vet who had a stroke in 2018, a comfortable life on an initial budget of £1.3million.

They have plans to sell their 17th-century farmhouse and build a new, wheelchair-accessible, modern home on a nearby plot, which they fetched for £850,000

The couple would like to complete their family home with two bedrooms, three bathrooms and an annexe, a wildlife garden and a self-cleaning swimming pool.

And they keep the blueprints in the family hands, while John’s son Ollie takes on the role of project manager.

However, not everything goes according to plan at Grand Designs as the couple learns that selling one house and building another at the same time can be a lot more difficult than expected.

You can watch Grand Designs on Channel 4 and All 4 tonight at 9pm. Grand Designs: Bedfordshire couple build ‘modernist pavilion’
