PHOTO: MEDIAWORKS – Patty and Geoff Coley say their friends couldn’t understand why they wanted to share the journey of building their Mangawhai beach house on Grand Designs NZ.

“Why on earth would you want to put yourselves through that?”

That’s the question friends asked Patty and Geoff Coley when they were told the couple were going on Grand Designs NZ.

Their friends had every right to ask the question – we’ve seen many episodes of Grand Designs where the budget blows out, builders are sacked, and couples come close to divorce.
