Grand Designs Australian season 7B is on Foxtel

Grand Designs Australian season 7 Foxtel

In one of the most inspiring series to date, Peter Maddison is back with the 7th season of Grand Designs Australia, as he follow all new owners, (many crazy-driven visionaries) with a dream to change their lives forever.

One young couple are attempting to build an open, airy family home with a tented roof in the Queensland rainforest; an owner-architect from Melbourne is creating a house in the curvy image of his own foot; a Tassie chef is re-configuring a hodge-podge of mismatched buildings including a windmill and decrepit outdoor toilet; and some forward thinking eco-warriors are building on a slippery, shifting sand dune. It does make you wonder, wouldn’t it be easier just to buy? But that wouldn't be a Grand Design, and this is one series that shouldn’t be missed!

Episode 12 - French Island Barge, Vic

With his own machinery and help from family and friends, Mike plans to build a large spotted gum clad home, in an off grid, koala filled paradise. However, he faces the challenge of transporting the materials via barge.
