Grand Designs

Episode Guide


Series 2 · Episode 4

Kevin follows Adrian Phillips and his fiancé Carina Wigglesworth as they attempt to rebuild a 300 year old ruin into the cottage it once was - a childhood dream of Adrian’s as it’s been in his family for 3 generations. The isolated site lies in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, exposed to fierce winds. This build is at the mercy of the weather - rain and severe floods are followed by storms, snow, and ice, making working conditions virtually intolerable in winter. Just when you think things can't get any worse, they're hit by foot and mouth. The disease strikes the farm at the bottom of Adrian's drive and they're banned from the site for 2 months. Adrian and Carina had hoped to move in by March, but all the delays mean that when Kevin arrives for his final visit in June, they're still nowhere near completion.
