Episode 9 - Mitcham

Today John Russell, Laura Hamilton and Edward Robinson are in Mitcham South West London to meet Dan and Emily Blakemore, a couple who have paid an emotional cost for their build going wrong.

Watch 11:45 Thursday 7 May 2015 on Channel 5

Desperate for their parents to come and stay to help with their young daughter and newborn baby, they need ideas to transform their half-finished attic conversion into a bedroom.

John finds out how we can avoid the traps the Blakemore’s fell for and Laura unravels the emotional turmoil the couple has been through. Edward Robinson the designer wrestles with a common design problem, how to make a room seem bigger than it is when he finds out that Emily suffers from claustrophobia!
