If you're in need of some inspiration for your project, take a look back at some of our favourite properties from series 7.

North Bondi Urban Cliff House

Brendan and Penelope spent over $6m creating their dream home, impossibly wedged into a rare plot in Sydney's Bondi. The result was an exceptional contemporary multi-tiered home, complete with infinity pool and wine cellar.


Verrierdale Tent House

Essentially a huge, $1.6 million tent in the rainforest, Nick and Nicole certainly made the most of their tropical surroundings. The canopy roof was manufactured in France and the Philippines, making this a truly international design at one with nature.


Aldinga Beach Dune

This three-pod home miraculously straddles two sand dunes in a conservation area, but shifting sand was not the greatest challenge for this Grand Designs Australia home. Sand is incredibly stable when compacted - it was protecting the environment which required the most effort while creating this million-dollar house.


Maianbar Timber House

Phil Davidson and Ariana Evans set themselves the seemingly impossible task of completing their build in just two weeks. Their secret weapon? A unique European building system never before used in Australia. A flat pack house, essentially. The couple found the perfect solution to living that beachside lifestyle within their $1.1m budget.

Stirling Glass Stone House

Made of 160 tonnes of castle-thick stone, this Grand Designs Australia home is an eclectic interpretation of the classic Tuscan villa. Built in the Adelaide Hills with a $600,000 budget, it's an authentic, rustic farmhouse filled with light thanks to half of the house being made entirely of glass.
