Channel 4’s new Grand Designs project is truly underway.

However, Grand Designs: The Street is proving to be more complicated than most of the show’s projects.

One of the youngest couples taking on the mammoth project is Jack and Hannah.

So who is Jack? Let’s take a look at the young man determined to build his dream home from scratch…

Grand Designs: The Street – Episode 2

Jack: bio

Both Jack and teacher girlfriend Hannah are 25-years-old.

They are childhood sweethearts and the couple have been together since they were 17!

Jack works as a quantity surveyor and so is no stranger to a building site, but is seeking to build his dream house entirely from scratch.

That means he’s working without any help from contractors – a massive task for the couple!

Why Grand Designs: The Street?

After paying a staggering £1500 a month on rent and having to move back into Jack’s mother’s house, having a place of their own seemed a far off dream for Jack and Hannah.

Jack always dreamt of building a house from scratch, even telling Hannah at the age of 17: “I’ll build us a house”.

However, they’ve been able to make that dream a reality with the Graven Hill project!

Has the project been a success?


Jack and Hannah have managed to make their dreams a reality and now have hopped onto the property ladder.

Costing £281K and taking over a year and a half to complete, Jack’s vision became more than he ever could have imagined.

Take a look at some of the best pics of their stunning modern property.

Where are Jack and Hannah now?

We can presume the couple have been living happily in No.4 on The Street since they completed the property in 2017.

But as they were the first to complete the project, maybe the couple waited until their neighbours were done!

From their presence on the Graven Hill webite and Instagram page, we can assume the pair are still happily together.
