Grand Designs

Series 7



Kevin McCloud revisits Francis and Karen Shaw to asses whether their efforts to save a peel tower in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales paid off. While the project was a chance to fulfil a childhood dream, the building's ancient status meant it was protected by numerous regulations. When the couple finally managed to get through the red tape, new and unexpected setbacks jeopardised the project and sent the budget spiralling out of control.
