My partner Chris has terminal cancer. He had to part with his home and now lives in his shack at Trial Harbour Tasmania. It needs a lot of finishing off and some new rooms to make it more comfortable for him. He is trying to keep working to earn more money to be able to do this. He has done a lot himself but he works 5 x 12 hour shifts then has 5 days off but he is working all the time and never stops. He has so much to do but never has a rest. He has lost one kidney and suffers terrible side effects from the oral chemotherapy, sore feet etc when he is on the medication for 4 weeks at a time. He has two weeks off and just starts to recover then is back on medication. I thought you might be able to help him or point me in the right direction. Many thanks. He is a wonderful man, pillar of the community, and doesn't deserve this.

Love the show. Wish you was in WA as we have wood rot in our windows, so they are going to fall out soon as well as the glass is the old style super thin, very unsafe for the kids to be around and we just cant afford to get them fixed so no idea what will happen this winter when the wind and rain hit them again.. Any recommendations on who can fix and cheaply to please?

Hi Guys
You are doing an Amazing job for these people and to get all those Tradies, friends and others involved is great too see. I know how involved it becomes for the home owner as I have renovated our 1920 Californian Bungalow over the past few years and am coming to the end but as I am retired I have time. Keep up the good work.

I live in a unit(2 bed atrium style} in Queensland Australia. We are about to spend $40000.00 on renovations...Kitchen/bathroom and I am afraid of making the wrong decisions. We currently have laminate floors(pine colour) and I want to update to stone benches etc, would love to have a green(pale frost colour) paint throughout, can you recommend a benchtop colour to blend in???

THE best and most heartwarming and funny show on Lifestyle. Even though I've lived in Australia most of my life - this show makes me feel so proud of my British heritage. My dream would be to see a show like this and as genuine as this in Australia. When we mature a bit more perhaps.

I am currently watching the episode of DIY SOS: the big build, where the team is helping mum Louise and Thomas (her young autistic son). We (my son & I)are in the same situation, just 10 years ahead. My son is 19yrs old and Autistic. He is a big lad, whom needs his own space...and our house has become too small.I am a Veterinary Nurse but like Louise, had to give up work with my son's needs becoming priority. Living on a carers pension, I dont have the funds to finish renovating my house..either with view of moving to a bigger property so Jaymes could have some independence,or extending for Jaymes' needs. Stuck between a rock and a hard place, as Jaymes will live with me forever..under my care. I applaud what your crew did for Louise & can be a very lonely, hard existance as I am fully aware of...and you've made a wonderful difference to thier lives. Warms the heart. Regards Kim Smith
