A COUPLE who once shared a tiny room with their family proudly showed off their new mansion during Wednesday evening’s instalment of Grand Designs.
After a successful first series, Grand Designs: The Streets returned to screens last week, with Kevin McCloud following households as they embark on a mission to construct their new homes.

As Kevin met couple Vineet and Simmi during Wednesday’s instalment, he saw the couple deliberate about the price of a television worth £8,000.
“We haven’t yet ordered the TV yet, thankfully, because we don’t have the money for it,” joked Simmi.
Quickly interjecting, Vineet added: “So, the reason I’m not buying the television is because the one that I want is £8,000.”
However, despite boasting about their newly found wealth and large home, the seasoned presenter found that the couple actually came from much humbler beginnings.

The new season of the show will return to Graven Hill in Oxfordshire, as well as visiting a new custom and self-build site in Glasgow, to see all the setbacks and success of those that decide to craft their own home.
Glasgow City Council has offered up a small plot, which has given six families the opportunity to build their dream home.
The usual Grand Designs challenges will feature – budgets, delays, relationships strains, disagreements with architects, and the added disruptions caused by coronavirus.
