The Big Build - Dartford

DIY SOS, Series 22 Episode 5 of 6

Nick Knowles and the team enlist the help of the local community and guest designer Oliver Heath to transform a post-war prefab house in Dartford into a warm and safe home for the future.

Single mum Louise had to stop work on her house when her son Thomas was diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorder. With the help of over a hundred local trades, friends and family, the DIY SOS team spend nine gruelling days renovating Louise and Thomas's home; adding an extension, reconfiguring the layout and transforming the garden.

With Thomas on the brink of adolescence, Nick and the boys are determined to hand back a home that will help Thomas develop the skills he needs to move on with his life and give Louise back her independence.
