15½, How to Build a Dream Design

As seen on Grand Designs, the opening roof and sliding bed bath typify this unique and extraordinary response to the constraints and opportunities of a tight budget on an 'unusable' brownfield site.
This DVD shows what TV couldn't...

Part I - Full House Tour - see it all in detail

View each room and see all the ideas for space saving and light use. The opening roof, a pull out basin, a bath under a bed, the bed on a draw, the shower in a light.

Part II - From Dream to Build - the steps - the tricks

Monty goes through all the steps to make it happen;- finding sites, buying sites, concept planning, actual planning, planners, neighbours, finance and the team.

Part III - The Actual Build - from mud to masterpiece

The breakdown; watch it build with full point by point voice over, room by room, stage by stage. Get to grips with the techniques, learn some easy lessons.

Part IV - Particular elements laid bare, each 'deconstructed'

The drawer-basin, the bed-bath, the windup windows, the hidden loo cisterns, the sloping storage, the draw-bed and some simple plumbing.
