If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
From a home created within an old electrical substation to another like a sprawling tent under canvas, from a home inspired by Japanese origami to another designed around a shipping container - these are the intriguing and resourceful design solutions featured in The Best of Grand Designs Volume 2, the much awaited sequel to the best-selling The Best of Grand Designs.
It features 24 inspiring homes that have featured in series six to eight of the iconic home design TV program, with projects straddling the continent, from Tasmania to Queensland, South Australia to northern NSW, in coastal, country and city locations.
As with its forerunner, the book is a tribute to Australian home owners and their architects and designers, who, undeterred by constraints such as a tight budget, a short timeline, a tricky site and heritage regulations, dared to dream and saw their grand visions become reality.
