      Anyone see Grand Designs on Channel 4 last night? What a great bit of design and engineering!

      A steel fabricator basically designed a jigsaw house, all of the steel sections and walls were built off site, including all of the electrics, plumbing etc and then within just a few days they had the house put together on site with just the kitchen and finishing touches to install.

      I know this kind of think has been done in Europe for a while but not think this level of design is new.

      What do you think? The future of house design and building?

      Sounds like an interesting idea Steve. Might check it out on the C4 catchup service online. Now that's a show I haven't watched for a while.
