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 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.
The renovation was a serious challenge for the team who went on to add a ground floor extension to the property. The result was an impressive renovation providing plenty of tips and ideas for BISF home-owners. Last broadcast on Tue, 9 Aug 2011, 21:00 on BBC One.
