Watch 11:10 Tuesday 9 June 2015 on Channel 5

 They bought a house that had been in the family for many years with the intention of fixing and cosmetically revamping it, but although husband Darran is a keen enthusiast unfortunately the house has got the better of him. Despite his best intentions, the jobs remain unfinished. Added to this, the family have had a run of bad luck and not to mention problems with their sleeping situation, in which things have gotten in a difficult state.

Cue the Cowboy Builders team but can builder Martin Gonzalez get to grips with a problem ceiling and how will designer Edward Robinson add some glitz and glamour to a tired old bedroom?

Alison Cork with her many years of interior design experience gets some illuminating ideas when Edward takes her shopping with Helen and Dan’s in for a shock when he visits an expert electrician!
