Episode 27- Gooring

Today Melinda Messenger, Dan Lobb and Edward Robinson are in Goring in South Oxfordshire to meet Tanja and Chris whose dream to extend their two bedroom bungalow has now become a living nightmare.

Watch 11.10 Thursday 8th Oct 2015 on Channel 5

Their intention had been to add a double storey extension to give them more room for their son Sami and expected new baby. But since the builder left the extension incomplete, the family have been left living in a cramped and cold home. Their new baby Elias is sleeping in his parents’ room and Sami is sleeping downstairs in the lounge.

How can the team help create the nest the family need to make their house into a home?
Edward Robinson, our Interior Designer sets about creating a boys bedroom upstairs. Melinda delves deeper into the problems the unfinished build has given rise to and Dan meets a solicitor who specialises in dispute resolution and asks the question – What’s the best way to plan and stick to a payment schedule when things go wrong?
