Architectural show Grand Designs is back on Channel 4 as host Kevin McCloud meets the ambitious individuals building their dream homes. 

The 23 previous seasons have seen everything from giant curved glass homes to mansions built out of clay and former water towers.

Now, more keen builders are ready to take on the task not for the faint-hearted as Kevin travels around the UK to see the new builds in Grand Designs.

Recent builds on the series of Grand Designs have seen one couple build an impressive family home on a former reservoir site in Wye Valley.

This week's edition of the Channel 4 program will see Kevin visit furniture maker Lucinda as she hopes to make a wooden home.

New Grand Designs sees entire homes made out of wood

Lucinda plans to build a new two-storey home entirely made out of wood set in the woodlands near her old family home.

With a tight budget of £150,000, Lucinda gets help from her two children Dan and Rosie who grew up learning furniture making.

In the preview of the episode, Lucinda shares that she is "trying to build something modest, but also exquisite."

With signs that the build might not be as easy as they hope, Lucinda faces bad weather, muddy conditions and a prolonged timeframe.

As she tells Kevin: "Timescale has slipped by a year or two I'd say."

But can Lucinda create her perfect dream wooden house? Find out on new Grand Designs on Channel 4 and All 4, Wednesdays at 9pm.
