The fifth episode of the 2018 series of Grand Designs' followed identical twins Nik and Jon Daughtry who run a design company together, drive the same car and even own identical dogs. Now these two brothers are building two near identical houses next door to each other. Raised up on steel stilts on the site of an old corn mill, these two extraordinary houses will pay tribute to Sheffield’s industrial past.

But Nik and Jon’s plan is incredibly ambitious. Not only do they want to build the two houses for the price of one, but the materials and finish have to be absolutely perfect too. With a budget of just three hundred and fifty thousand pounds for both buildings, it’s an almighty stretch right from the start. 

Take a look at the sleek and modern features of each build.
