New episodes of Grand Designs

Oh Kevin McCloud, you tv-presenting, multilingual, designer dreamboat! How we love the way you you get excited by innovative building materials; your brutal honesty with couples when their projects are ridiculous; the way you say something is a "triumph" in almost every episode; those jumpers.
Where, would we, the discerning public, be if we didn't have you, Kevvy-Wevvy, to guide us each week, through the trials and tribulations that people face when building their ultimate kick-ass dream homes? Probably crying ourselves to sleep, as the only other alternative would be to endure Ty Pennington's voice on Extreme Home Makeover.

Thank you for bringing us yet another fantastic season of Grand Designs, so that we may continue to be inspired and know there are people out there (albeit effing loaded people), who care about building something interesting and how that structure is built. That first episode with the underground house totally blew my mind!

If you are as excited about the new series of Grand Designs as I obviously am, tune in tomorrow and every wednesday at 9:00 on Channel 4.

Love Grand Designs!! I love those Styrofoam building blocks that you pour cement into.. if only they worked better tho..

I'm sure that they're not meant to leak like that. I think that builder probably effed it up, then decided to cut losses by charging the family that 80 grand. If you haven't built an underground house before, you probably shouldn't agree to a fixed rate.

They didn't work that well for the granny who was building the round tower house thingy either!

Love Grand Designs. As for Ty Pennington, he is so annoying......its not called extreme for nothing!

Found you via Homebug and I must admit to having a girl crush on Kevin Mcloud... although the new series isn't lighting my fire so far.

I'd have to agree with you. Kevin McCloud: awesome! This series of Grand Designs: not exactly...but the first episode was pretty cool.
