Will it make excellent use of space and light? smile

Thanks for the heads up, I'd probably have missed this otherwise.

Shouldn't it be called Mediocre Designs in this time of austerity?

Slim pickings usually.

The only ones of note that I can remember were a GT3 on the 'revsited' of that Irish couple that built the house on the hill (O'Hare I think they were called), and did Kevin himself not run a TVR back in the day (before he came over all environmentalist)

This episode sounds superb id love a castle.

After borrowing an eye-watering 1.2 million Euros, Sean launches into his project just as Ireland plunges into recession.

So how much over the £1.2mill is he likely to end up spending refurbishing a Castle? Im going for £1.5mill.

And worth a cool £600k at the end.

Lock up your wives and daughters and, keep them in the castle keep! hehe

An ambitious project to kick the series off with, in a fantastic location.

Oh dear.

this has disaster written all over it. fk up after fk up. It may turn out ok but I think a proper architect would have made it better.
