Grand Designs New Zealand
Sunday, ABC, 7.40pm
The Grand Designs franchise continues its quest for world domination with a foray across the Tasman. Architect Chris Moller (left) is at the helm here, following the frustrating yet rewarding renovation journeys of families seeking to make a mark on the Kiwi landscape, from the early blueprints to the celebratory champagne. Tonight we meet deer farmer Lachlan McDonald, a bachelor building his dream home for the family he hopes to have one day. He’s hired an architect, but will project manage the build of his concrete castle in the remote and stormy Catlins himself. And he’s got a mate building it. What could possibly go wrong?
