GRAND Designs fans have been blown away by a Bolton couple who have spent seven years creating their perfect home.  Paul and Carol Rimmer invested all of their money into creating a fortified eco-home in the Pennine Moors, building a state-of-the-art property on a £350,000 budget.  The bricklayer has been working on the home for almost a decade with the help of his wife and Grand Designs host Kevin McCloud first visited the site in 2015.  Now, seven years later, the pair have struggled financially as their efforts to keep the project running have racked up a £550,000 bill, way over their budget. However, it seems like it was worth it and in the latest revisiting episode on Channel 4, the house was finally finished.  Paul and Carol are now looking forward to retirement in their lavish home surrounded by acres of land, free from complicated planning permission fights and building issues.  Read More on Grand Designsstunning Grand Designs' £6m 'zig-zag' house dubbed 'breathtaking' by host Kevin McCloudTAKING A POUNDING My £10m Grand Designs disaster is not over yet… I could end up with £1 The pair made every effort to make it a zero-carbon home right on the green belt, using sustainable materials, solar panels, and specific building methods.  They saved money on project managers and quantity surveyors by doing the work themselves.  Further issues were caused by weather, with flooding threatening to stop the renovation in its tracks before it was completed. Paul also had a heart attack in 2020, needing surgery to fully recover.

GRAND Designs revisited the infamous lighthouse renovations on tonight’s episode – with fans all saying the same thing as Kevin McCloud caught up with Edward and Hazel.  Over the course of more than a decade, millions were pumped into turning Chessil Cliff House into Edward’s dream home.  But the Croyde, Devon property came at an even bigger cost – Edward and Hazel’s marriage.  The hope to spend £2.5million came and went within years, with the couple plunging themselves into financial ruin to make the transformation come to life. The eventual price came to more than £5million.  On top of that, they even knocked their own house down in order to invest more money into the fantasy.  When the show visited the house in 2019, it was dubbed the saddest episode ever as things turned even more bleak for the house, which still wasn’t completed and was referred to as being close to “complete coastal ruin”, with McCloud comparing it to looking like a “car park”.
