Emilie and Tom live together in a two up two down Manchester terraced house in Manchester with their “tribe” of four children two each from previous relationships. The couple wanted to extend their house for their new family and in particular they wanted to transform their basement into a den for their children.
The hope was it was going to become a teenage lair or “fungeon” where all the children could bond over video games, play their music loudly as well as their guitars and drums; a space where all the siblings could have fun and spend quality time together. Unfortunately their dreams haven’t quite gone to plan and it’s up to Dan, Laura, Gareth and Edward to get this build back on track.
Can Edward find his teenage kicks and get into the mind-set of a 15 year old, will Dan be able to find out what went wrong with this build and why Building Control is so important, can Gareth help fix an uneven floor and will Laura ever stop playing those drums?!
