Laura and Dan are in Usk in Monmouthshire, South Wales with the Smith family.

Watch 11:45 Tuesday 19 May 2015 on Channel 5

On today’s show After 10 years of flooding, and facing enormous financial and emotional strains they’re determined to try and protect their house from the elements, fortunately help is on hand in the form of the Cowboy Builders team.

Laura Hamilton finds out just how far reaching the implications of moving a whole family into a rental property can be and the impact this has on the Smiths’ young sons Jack and Alfie. Meanwhile Dan Lobb finds out how common a problem flooding can be and investigates at the National Flood Forum.

Designer Edward Robinson is tasked with creating the boys’ bedroom and gets design inspiration from his young helpers and the build team are tasked with a very challenging and intriguing problem before anything can begin.  Have the Cowboy Builders Team taken on more than they can chew this time?
