Grand Designs Indoors is a lesser known spin-off, with the same format. As the name suggests the series concentrated on the interior transformation of these properties. Only containing six episodes, this series was broadcast in 2001. Each episode Kevin McCloud follows different couples / families who are trying to build / improve a property. They can go from the downright stupid to the most high class and dignified properties. Grand Designs is a British television series produced by Talkback Thames and broadcast on Channel 4 which features unusual and often elaborate architectural home-building projects. The programme has been presented by Kevin McCloud since it first aired in April 1999, and 124 episodes have been broadcast in eleven series.

All episodes generally follow a regular format, with small variations depending on the progress of the build. At the beginning of an episode, McCloud meets the clients embarking on the project; he visits the site with them, and discusses the plans for the building. A computer visualisation or computer-aided design view of the intended project is shown. Once ground work commences, he visits the site periodically, following the build progress, noting any changes, hitches or delays; the build frequently runs over budget and completes later than scheduled. McCloud will often do a piece to camera concentrating on any unique materials or features in the house. He visits again once the building is then made watertight, and the first and second fixes have commenced. He makes a final visit to the site in its finished or near-finished state, once the occupants have moved in. A tour of the house is then given; McCloud brings the episode to a close summarising the house, its construction, and his opinions.

If a house is unlikely to be completed before filming finishes, it will often be revisited in a later episode. In more recent series, McCloud revisits past unfinished builds once they have been completed and may stay overnight.

The properties featured in Grand Designs are hugely varied in style and design, from underground homes to converted water towers to buildings constructed in methods of sustainable architecture; the only common factor is that they are all unusual or extravagant.

Anne and Richard Curtis have found a disused electricity substation in Sunderland. And set about converting it into a large four bedroom family home on a tight budget. Never having been to Morocco, but are taking inspiration from a Moroccan Interiors book. Trying to keep costs down Richard does most of the work himself while trying to hold down a day job as a Policeman.

Financial Analyst Yuen-Wei Chew commissions Paul Daly, top nightclub designer, (this was his first time doing a domestic interior) to redesign the interior of his fifth floor, 1 bedroom 750sq ft, Barbican flat. As a vision of contemporary living with a fusion of two strong design elements, Zen meets Pop. With an initial budget of around £20,000, but with bespoke elements such as a walk-in wardrobe costing £6,000 and window blinds costing £9,000, things soon go out of control with the total being closer to £115,000.

Featuring Tony and Sharon Relph, a couple restoring a dilapidated 200 year old Georgian house in London, to its former glory. They have very little money and plan to do most of the work themselves. If they manage to restore the grade two listed house in the Georgian style, the council will allow them to live there rent free for a period of their lease. They peel back layers of wallpaper to find a historical scrapbook of finishes which is donated to The English National Heritage. A modern interpretation of a period home with close attention to detail and sensitive repair, this is a true labour of love.

Kathryn and Charlie Raywood set about renovating a farmhouse cottage. The couple draw inspiration from Sainte Chapelle, Shakespeare’s birthplace and Gwidyr Castle. They start to strip the place back to its medieval roots. But with a meagre budget of just £10,000 the basic structural work to the house eats up 80% of the budget, leaving a mere £2,000 for all decoration including a new kitchen, bathroom, lavish fabrics, tapestries and medieval furniture. They resort to enlisting family and friends to get things back on track. They buy Asian antiques which resemble medieval originals at a fraction of the price and up their overdraft in an attempt to get the project completed.

Featuring renowned artist Damien Hirst and his wife Maia Norman, a couple who are pursuing the ultimate dream – a personally designed, secluded Shaker style summer house in the grounds of his country home (in Devon), as a retreat from the big bad world. Designer Mike Rundell, whom he worked with to create the Pharmacy restaurant in West London, to help him with his challenge. Maia is getting to work on their new houseboat in Chelsea (overall budget of £300,000 including the purchase of the boat), with the hope of turning it into the perfect London hang-out.

Hayley and Pedro Castle have lived in Brighton for 5 years in a small regency style cottage near the seafront. They want to clear out their place and start again. Using the ‘St Martins’ Lane Hotel’ as inspiration, they plan to modernise their home into a light, airy and totally modern space. The planned budget is just £23,000. As the work starts, all does not run smoothly, tensions run high as they fall out with the main contractor, after the property is plagued with structural problems, damp and leaks. Despite all of these nightmares, delays and overspending, the results in the end are very glamorous.
