The Balls’ dream of having a kitchen diner extension have been dashed due to an unfinished build and it’s up to Melinda, Dan, Chris, Edward and the team to get this job done and it’s not an easy one!

Caroline, a keen chef, really wanted to extend their house for their growing family and dreamt of having a kitchen area which would be the heart of the home somewhere the children could play, where they could dine and entertain and most importantly somewhere that Caroline could share her love of cooking with her children and teach them how to bake cakes. Unfortunately with a husband away working Monday to Friday and left with just a shell of an extension and no kitchen plus looking after three very young children has really taken its toll on Caroline and it’s up to Melinda to get Caroline back on track who feels she’s changed as a mum.  

Meanwhile Chris Payne and his team of builders set about transforming this kitchen area but with plumbing and flooring issues will they be able to create Caroline’s dream kitchen? Meanwhile Edward Robinson is given a free reign but will his bold choices go down well and will Caroline’s shopping choices work with his own design scheme or will they clash? And since Caroline has dreams of running her own business from home, Dan goes off and meets someone who’s done exactly that!
