Good, but it gets a little repetitive
7 March 2018 | by seronjaa-797-313124See all my reviews

What's about all those people thinking they could be project coordinators in their spare time? Or they don't need an architect? Of course, the show wouldn't be as interesting without it, but the same old same old budget problem is getting a little annoying. First they want to build their dream home as big and pompous as possible But all of them have wrong budget expectations. Then they want it built in months during the worst possible snow and rain storms. And in the end they magically have enough money for it, but it took 4 years instead of 2. I love seeing new ides for houses, learn more about architecture and building problems, but I don't need the personal drama in each episode. Will they have enough money? Will the weather get better? Will they finally move in? That gets a little boring. The architecture itself should be the focus. And the building site.
