Island Home On Grand Designs Next Week

Island project by Lincoln Miles featured on Grand Designs next week

If you read the Sunday Times, you might have spotted a feature in the Home section last Sunday about an Isle of Wight architectural project.

Island Home On Grand Designs Next WeekFor the past year Island artist Lisa Traxler and her architect partner Lincoln Miles have been building their dream home.

Tucked away in a forest near Quarr Abbey, the couple have transformed their bog-standard two bedroom bungalow into an uber-stylish contemporary family home.

Kevin McCloud and Channel 4’s Grand Designs have accompanied them on the journey, filming from beginning to end and the property will feature in the first of a new series of Grand Designs next week.

You can see the transformation of the property, which is spectacular, next Wednesday (15th )evening on Channel 4 at 9pm.

We’ve walked past this loads of times and joked it should be on there (tbh we don’t like it much but each to their own) :D

It’s an awesome house …. and Lincoln likely to get his own show after this :-) Way to go guys!

Lincoln needs his own show and if he really gets one it’ll be long overdue. :-)
