The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Award-win­ning ar­chi­tect Peter Mad­di­son doesn’t quite have the charisma and cheek of his UK host­ing coun­ter­part, Kevin McCloud, but it doesn’t really mat­ter as this show is all about the spec­tac­u­lar houses. For any­one in­ter­ested in build­ings or ar­chi­tec­ture, this se­ries, which aired on Foxtel’s Life­Style chan­nel, is prop­erty porn. It takes view­ers in­side some of Aus­tralia’s most ex­cit­ing res­i­den­tial build­ing projects from start to fin­ish, show­ing how the own­ers’ vi­sion comes to­gether with var­i­ous glitches along the way. Houses to go gaga over this sea­son in­clude the trans­for­ma­tion of a Cal­i­for­nian bun­ga­low into a Ja­panese-style tim­ber home; the con­struc­tion of a house de­signed with feng shui and en­ergy ecol­ogy in mind; and a 60m long, one-roomwide, al­most all-glass home with views across the Barossa Val­ley. ★★★✩ Ex­tras: None.
