You have to watch this. 2 girls - brought rundown terrace - going to do all the work themselves - didnt have a buildings survey and the place is a state!

Really dim girls.... great viewing though


JoolsToo · 06/10/2004 21:00

so arrogant - I was screaming at the telly 'put the kitchen at the back you dimwits' - still they sold it so fair play!


misdee · 06/10/2004 21:01

kitchen at the back, bathroom in the middle. at least then they would;ve been able to use the dining table for 4 instead of 2!


SoupDragon · 06/10/2004 21:01

didn't realise this was on.


Amfs · 06/10/2004 21:11

was it me or did the american turn into uber-lesbian over the course of the 6 months

and why did sarah beenie look so rough? she's normally lovely


SpringChicken · 06/10/2004 21:33

Just had a baby AMFS - god, if Beenie looked rough in your eyes i'm glad you didn't see my after i had DD.

People amaze me sometimes - what is the point in going on PL if you are not going to take the professionals advice! Dimwits.


JiminyCricket · 06/10/2004 21:37

we missed the end - did they sell it or did they lose loads of money?


Chinchilla · 06/10/2004 21:38

Did anyone else REALLY want the girls to fail horribly? Or am I just a complete bitch? Yup, thought so...


jasper · 06/10/2004 21:59

bought for 35 spent 26 sold for 95 ish


Sexyandhappy · 06/10/2004 22:03

Valued at 90, was put on the market at 108!!!! and sold for 95 as Jasper said. Girls also said the first viewer would buy it.... dillusional !!!!!! That kicthen should not have been there.


miggy · 06/10/2004 22:03

Chinchilla-Snap! how could you not, unless completely saintly


Sexyandhappy · 06/10/2004 22:07

Did Sarah B... have a baby then ?? How did I miss that?


Clayhead · 06/10/2004 22:11

some stuff about it in this thread


JoolsToo · 06/10/2004 22:14

chinchilla & miggy - me also. You just think - right I've never done this before and here's an expert with good ideas - I know lets ignore her and tell her we know best - doh!


WideWebWitch · 06/10/2004 22:41

I watched this too. How stupid were those 2?! I was just willing them to lose money but no, it didn't happen as usual.


Twinkie · 07/10/2004 11:37

Oooohhhh so wanted them to lose everything - arrogant twats - DP was screaming at the TV for most of the programme - and pissed myself when the builder put thise little metal ties up to hold the roof up!!!

Should have sold it to the solicitor and made 15k straight away with no work at all!!

We were wondering if thery were lesbians but yes the blonde one did sort of turn into an uber lesbian by the end of it!!

Sarah ahd a little boy called Billy - thought she looked good considering - mind you he is 6 months now!! She just needs to go to a hairdresser that makes her hair look nice and not like a bird has shat on it and FFS buy a decent bra woman your boobs are round your waist!!

(Can you tell I am in a cross mood today!!)


bundle · 07/10/2004 11:40

twinkie, her hair was TERRIBLE!


dogbreath · 07/10/2004 11:41

you lot are right cows!

so sarah was still fat after having a baby, wow. it was their developemnt let them do what they want with it


SpringChicken · 07/10/2004 11:44

I can smell a .............................................troll!


dogbreath · 07/10/2004 11:44

really where? i CANT SMELL IT


bundle · 07/10/2004 11:46

gosh, coddy's spelling has improved.


Twinkie · 07/10/2004 11:53

She wasn;t fat at all - thought she looked great in that respect just think she has no idea about underwiring or hair and as for them doing what they want why go on TV with a woman who has made a shit load of money out of property development and then act like a petulant teenager when given advice???


bundle · 07/10/2004 11:56

their attitude re: the loft was downright dangerous & stupid, imo. ffs the roof could have fallen on top of them and where would they be withtheir blooming renovations then? and having a kitchen with no windows is a big no-no imo


dogbreath · 07/10/2004 11:57

sorry the cow comment was a joke!

just it is alot harder when you are developing your own property to get everything right. And yes you do beleive your own views are correct. the fact they were aiming for 70k and got 95k is pretty good I thought. they both worked in factories, i think they should have a pat on the back for risking it and putting some effort into to making a bit of 'extra' money. It was a learning curve for them. It si bloody hard work living on a building site aswell!

think i misunderstood the bit about sarah aswell, i thought we were on about the chunkier lesbian


Twinkie · 07/10/2004 12:00

But the extra they got was due to the rise in house prices not them being great developers!!
