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

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

Lynn faces problems during her build as there are serious issues with her underfloor heating and her roof. She also falls out with neighbours Terry and Olwen. With the help and support of Graven Hill and Kevin McCloud, Lynn comes through it all and 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.
