Episode 53 - Barry

Today we’re in Barry, South Wales with industrial mechanic Steven Williams and his girlfriend Sarah Clements.

Watch 11:10 Tuesday 13th Oct 2015 on Channel 5

Steven would love his girlfriend to move into his home but at the moment he has a problem; the bachelor pad he created five years ago has no appeal to Sarah. Could it be his macho bed? His matte black radiators and skirting? Or could it be the layers of dust that collect in his unfinished kitchen after constant attempts at DIY have ended in failure.

Whatever the reason, the team are here to turn this caveman pad into a more ladylike love nest. But Edward Robinson the Designer can’t completely rid the rooms of testosterone he needs to find a way of combining their tastes and come up with a style they both will be happy with.
Meanwhile Martin Gonzalez, builder by trade takes on the kitchen with some practical solutions to problems with pipework, plumbing and insulation.
