Episode 6 - Crawley

Today Dan, Laura and Edward are in Crawley, Sussex with pet shop worker Nicky Higgs.

Watch 11:30 Monday 4 May 2015 on Channel 5

Nicky and her three daughters not to mention her dog, two parrots and six hamsters have been living with an unfinished extension after a build went wrong and the kitchen she’d always dreamed of didn’t turn out the way she’d hoped. Now, Nicky has no useable kitchen, no heating and has been cooking on a camp stove for her family. Nicky has also run out of money and even her father cashed in his savings to make his daughter’s dreams of turning her three bed mid terrace into a cosy home that all her family can enjoy, a reality. Nicky is devastated that she hasn’t been able to provide a warm and secure home for her children.

Fortunately help is on hand and the Cowboy Builders team sweeps into action imparting their design wisdom as well as giving some handy DIY tips to Nicky, along the way.

Laura helps Nicky come to terms with the emotional impact of this build, Edward has a mission on his hands incorporating Nicky’s personality into his design and Dan finds out the importance of having Gas Safety Checks....but will they get Nicky’s gas working in time?
