For almost two decades, Kevin McCloud has been inspiring millions who dream of building their own home on his TV show Grand Designs.
Despite the fact many of the houses featured are extremely pricey, the host himself is a firm believer in the fact that you don’t need to break the bank (or move to an electricity-free straw hut) to live sustainably.
“We need to change the way we live and consume,” he says. “Not just to consume less energy but to generate it in sustainable ways. Every home can be a power station in the future.”
