Grand Designs kicked off its 21st series at the beginning of 2021 with even more people stretching their imaginations far and wide to build their dream homes. Presenter Kevin McCloud has been witness to thousands of projects over the years and despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the latest season will be no different. The Channel 4 show will be airing its latest episode tonight, Wednesday, January 27, at 9pm.
Those who appear on Grand Designs are building some of the most unique and challenging houses possible.
They usually end up spending hundreds of thousands of pounds, sometimes more and often go way over their planned budget.
Of course, they mostly end up with beautifully designed homes but at a pricey cost.
So it isn’t out of the question to think those who appear on the series would get paid for their projects being filmed.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
