After paying the builder £71,000 of their life savings, Mike and Emma have been left with an unfinished and incorrectly built extension and a house open to the elements. Heavily pregnant during the build, Emma suffered huge stress as a result of the saga and was admitted to hospital with complications. Happily baby Otto arrived healthy a few weeks later but the couple's builder quit work on their home soon afterwards.

In order to put the work right, Mel and her team must tackle the biggest kitchen extension they have ever attempted.
