Thirty four year-old Andy and 32 year-old Esther have lived in their three-bedroom house in Stirling, Scotland for almost four years. With idyllic views of the river and castle the couple love where they live, but with three small children their house is cramped and no longer works for family life.
Andy and Esther know the house needs changing but have no idea what to do. Esther is keen to keep a separate space, but Andy thinks they should open the whole downstairs up. They could extend into the garden, but they are not sure if that's the best solution. The couple are locked in stalemate over how to spend their budget of £55,000, so are handing over control to two competing architects - Laura Jane Clark and Robert Jamison.
