They bought a rural idyll with grand plans for a big extension to accommodate their growing family but unfortunately the house exposed some horrible secrets. Disaster struck when they found out they couldn’t stay there due to structural issues and they had to leave their home.
The stress of the build not to mention financial difficulties has taken its toll on the Dobson’s, so Melinda and Dan step in just in time.
And with the help of designer Edward Robinson and builder Gareth Hooson, the team manages to make some headway with the refurbishment of their Victorian cottage.
Having enlisted Liz’s help, Edward decides to follow a contemporary yet traditional path, but will Liz like it? And Melinda unleashes her inner lighting abilities and realizes there’s a lot more to lampshades than she knew! Plus Dan visits a seasoned property developer and architect – to find out why it’s so crucial to get a survey done when buying a property.
