Catch Lynn in Episode 1 of Grand Designs: The Street
Original episode air date: Thursday 4 April 2019

Catch up on Lynn’s episode


Moving from a traditional 250-year-old cottage, Lynn has built a modern, spacious, open-plan home – a stark contrast to her previous residence.

With little building experience, Lynn benefited from help from her neighbours, Terry and Olwen.

Lynn faced problems during her build as there were serious issues with her underfloor heating and her roof. She also fell out with neighbours Terry and Olwen. With the help and support of Graven Hill and Kevin McCloud, Lynn came through it all and did finally we see her finished house.

Despite all the issues Lynn faced she’s delighted with the individuality of her home and says she’d “definitely do it again”. With ground level, polished concrete floors and the upstairs adopting an Oast house-inspired roundel extending from the roof, her dream home is truly one-of-a-kind.
