Anyone who says they don't like nosing around other people's homes is a liar, which is why almost everyone loves Kevin McCloud and the Grand Designs series which has now been running for 16 years and follows McCloud as he goes around the UK and Ireland witnessing people build their dream home.

And it turns out that it's not just the public en masse who love to pick their favourite homes, the Royal Institute of British Architects also looks for the best new home in Britain every year, and this year McCloud and co. are tagging along with them to discover which feat of architecture is the best. Fingers crossed there's no 'harsh winter' to delay things (because there's always a harsh winter that delays things).
