Tonight | Grand Designs: The Streets on ABC and ABC iview

Grand Designs: The Streets on ABC – Kevin McCloud follows more innovative and pioneering community projects across the British Isles and revisits the ambitious self-builds in Graven Hill and Glasgow with co-presenter Natasha Huq.

Taking the leap into the world of self-build are two families from Yorkshire with two very different visions.
Nicola and Gareth are pioneering the first build in this landmark scheme.

With only a small budget, former schoolteacher Nicola takes on the challenge of designing and project managing a traditional, redbrick, family home with a modern twist herself.

But, working with a tight budget and lack of experience, things start to go wrong when the centrepiece of her vision – a spectacular triangular window – arrives but does not fit.

Down the road, is an exciting Brazilian inspired home built by Matt and Maryellen, with flamboyant colours, textures and a butterfly roof. Steelworker Matt is keen to use the material he loves wherever he can, but Maryellen fears it will make the building feel industrial. They have different ideas about what they want from the house. Matt wants a gothic bathroom all in black, like a nightclub, Maryellen in contrast, wants a glamorous white one.

The house promises to cut an extraordinary figure on the York skyline – but with a tiring commute, the pace of work at the office and family commitments – building it promises to be far from straightforward.
