Watch 11:45 Friday 22 May 2015 on Channel 5

Jonathan and Lucy thought they’d bought their perfect house and set about planning their dream family home. They stretched their finances to fund the renovation, however they hit a stumbling block, and their dream has turned into a nightmare. A year on the family are living in an unfinished build and with a house they resent. Can Laura, Dan, Edward and the team help them get their build back on track? 

 Interior Designer Edward Robinson and builder Andy Radford embark on transforming the shell of the extension and fit a new kitchen. Meanwhile Dan investigates what went wrong with the build, learns the art of kitchen design and Laura meets John the electrician who gives us some expert advice.
