Kieran Long and Piers Taylor come to the aid of homeowners as they take on ambitious building projects. This time, they help Sue with her previously unloved 1920s semi-detached.

Last year in The House that £100k Built, Kieran Long and Piers Taylor followed self-builders as they took on the biggest gamble of their lives, trying to build a home from scratch for less than £100k. This time, Kieran and Piers are coming to the aid of homeowners with ambitious plans to create an extraordinary home out of the one they already have. They have all sorts of problems to solve, are on the tightest of budgets and with little or no experience, are desperate for help. Kieran and Piers will come up with ingenious solutions and inspire them with big ideas to turn their tired houses into exceptional homes.

Sue moved into a dark, unloved 1920s semi in Kent with big ideas to reconfigure the entire house. She is keen to make a fresh start after a traumatic divorce, but her initial plans are scuppered when she finds out her £25k budget is not enough to do all the work. Kieran and Piers set about revising her plans, but as Sue ploughs on and the money runs out, she is left to make some tough decisions in order to try and have the house she so desperately wants.

Kath and Greg's family home in Shrewsbury is a 1970s timewarp, with a kitchen that is so impractical and potentially dangerous that their daughters are often kept away. As the true cost of updating the kitchen sinks in, the family has to abandon plans for a glossy kitchen and roll up their sleeves to tackle the bigger problems. While Kieran investigates alternative ways to get the kitchen of their dreams, Piers is tested to come up with low-cost solutions to seemingly insurmountable problems.
