Grand Designs 2011

If you have read my blog before you will know I'm a bit of a fan of Grand Designs. I went a couple of years ago and it's where I found my beloved Esse Ironheart. This year its back and so are ESSE. When you are engaged in a project that you feel very passionate about you probably have a very clear idea about the overall feel of what you want to achieve. What you don't have is a list of all the things you need to achieve it and more importantly an infinite budget to buy them all. That I think is where shows like this are really useful in that they give you a chance to really touch and feel some of the things you think you want. You can then work out what's really important to you and your home and where your budget is best spent. The other useful thing about trade shows is that its an opportunity for motivation and inspiration. This past few months I've been working full time in the UK to help the project along and its good to keep sight of that vision.
