"Grand Designs"?

Many of you surely know Keven McCloud's excellent TV program Grand Designs, it's documentaries about the process of people building their dream homes.
I've no doubt it's one of the best of the kind, if not the best.
However, the title is a bit subtle. So I just wrote to Kevin:

You know, I wonder if the double meaning of “Grand Designs” is not lost on most people.  These days “Designs” is not often used in the “plans” meaning.
So I’m thinking, how about replacing it with something straight and simple… like, say, “Proud Erections”?
