How many of us dream of the perfect home, beautifully tailored to our own living requirements and style? And how many more of us dream of creating that home in some spectacular spot overseas? Grand Designs, one of Channel Four's most successful series ever has now moved abroad to combine home-building dreams with the desire to forge a new life abroad. This accompanying book is packed with real advice and inspiration for both real and armchair builders. Kevin McCloud covers the requirements for locating and buying land and property, and securing building permission, in the countries targeted by most British buyers—Spain, France, Italy and Ireland—including plenty of pointers on the common pitfalls. Both complete self-builds and renovations are covered, with advice on building abroad as well as what to do when things—as they so often do—go wrong.
