Grand Designs Season 14 Episode 2 - North Cornwall: The Cross-Laminated Timber House
Synopsis: Product designer Rebecca Sturrock has returned to her family home in Cornwall with her partner Gregory Kewish and a highly ambitious plan. Together they hope to transform a small, damp bungalow into a cutting-edge home to share with their twin three-year-old daughters – all for just £80,000. The design is radical – to reinforce the walls of the old property and add a new living space on top to take advantage of the views. This extra floor will be made entirely of thick wooden panels engineered in Germany and normally assembled by a crew of specialist installers. However, budget constraints mean the couple are determined to do it all themselves. Series featuring the challenges faced by eight people designing and building their dream houses.
