The Coleman’s wanted to build a single storey extension on their bungalow to accommodate David’s elderly parents. They cashed in their savings and were looking forward to the family all being under one roof. However tragically David’s dad passed away before the work could be completed, but that wasn’t the only misfortune to befall this family; nearly a year since work first started, their dream family home is nowhere near being finished. They’ve been stranded with an incomplete extension, stuck without a bathroom, and have to visit family round the corner if they want to use a shower. Can Dan, Laura and Edward help the Coleman’s move forward and get it ready for David’s mum Maureen to finally move in?
Builder Andy Radford and Interior Designer Edward Robinson get cracking on a bedroom make over and plumb in the bathroom suite. Andy teaches David how to plaster, whilst Dan investigates what went wrong with their build and soaks up information from a bathroom expert. Meanwhile Laura watches over the makeover and finds out about the emotional impact of the last year on the family.
