Grand Designs is a property show which follows homeowners as they attempt to build their dream property. Hosted by Kevin McCloud, the programme shows different architects make unusual and elaborate projects. Tonight viewers will watch as one pair attempts to build a huge property to a tight deadline. How will they get on?

Giving themselves just one year to complete the project, entrepreneur, Paul Wilkinson, and his wife, Amy, set to work.

The show followed them as they set out to build a giant new property on their 16-acre plot of land in Lincolnshire.

However, property fans will watch as they are soon faced problems due to the complicated circular shape of the building.

What’s more, Paul and a small team struggled with the risks as the property is made of timber cylinders linked by raise wooden walkways that hang over a fishing lake.

As the builders rush to make the property airtight before Autumn, they enlist more manpower to speed up the process.

Paul works day and night in a bid to hit his time goals, however he explained he was struggling with a metal plate which was put in his back following a car accident.

He said: “In about three weeks time I’m booked in to have the nerves burnt out around my spine to try and ease the pain.

“My specialist said I shouldn’t be doing manual work at all. I shouldn’t be touching any spades.”

As he continues to work, his health takes a toll for the worst and he is admitted to hospital for an operation which could threaten the entire project.

Kevin McCloud follows the couple and their team of builders as they try to push through their obstacles to achieve their dream home.
