yep, I watched. It was an incredible make-over. I've been trying to find a suppliers list... I want to use one of the paint colours grin.

I switched on about 10 minutes before the end and saw what they'd done but missed the back story - had the dad died? sad

yes, I missed the beginning but caught up that the father had died after starting the extension. I read online that his best friend wrote in to the show.

yes, there were help lines given at the end.

yes slarty. The parents divorced when the kids were young but had a good parenting relationship, then the dad lost his job and couldn't finish the build and then took his life... must have felt so, so awful...

I love the build they did this week and the way it was revealed too.

I did shed a tear when the dd was at the garden centre with Billy; he's so good with that sort of thing, having been through loss himself

I missed the beginning as well and wondered how the Dad had died, but I did think it was a bit strange how there didn't seem to be much of him around the house and how they kept talking about making a new start and stuff, it seemed a little odd terminology - but it all makes sense now

It's so hard for children to lose a parent, but to suicide... you just can't imagine how hard tht must be. I am so so sorry for those of you who do actually know how hard it is x

Great reveal too - though we were wondering if the chill room came with free physio appointments - because you'd need them if you watched the TV from the sofa!! grin

That was the bit that got me Lewis sad

I didn't realise he took his own life, how tragic sad

I was sobbing at the end.
