Pilates instructor Sam and Matt, who works within the aviation business, from Stockport, had been within the first episode of the Channel four sequence final evening the place they defined that they had purchased their 1930s residence seven years in the past for £315,000.

‘I would be fuming if I used to be their neighbour taking a look at that! However typical architect going, “Oh it’s simply sublime!’
Meanwhile another wrote: ‘Reckon whoever signed that off at planning doesn’t work there anymore.’
Sam and Matt met at university and ended up settling down in their three bedroom house seven years ago.
They bought it seven years ago for £315,000 and spent £200,000 on the extension – but claimed the property is now worth £650,000.

Meanwhile the extension also added space onto the upstairs of their home, with the couple adding a fourth bedroom onto the second floor (pictured)
Their shared love of design left them determined to make an impact and transform the home from a bog standard semi to something more modern.
The couple had grand designs for the semi. The original house had a classic 1930s layout, with two large reception rooms, a small kitchen, and three bedrooms upstairs.
To give them the space they wanted, they planned a radical transformation which put them on a collision course with the local council.
Their planning application was rejected and after three years of negotiations, they finally got the go ahead.
A year later, the building was finally complete, with just the landscaping left. Despite there being ‘a lot of work to do’, they said they were ‘really pleased with it.’
Sam and Matt, who met at university, appeared overjoyed with their property renovation and compared the extension to an ‘infinity pool’
Presenter Damion Burrows called it ‘super high end design.’
Sam and Matt’s extension provided much needed space, giving them four generously sized bedrooms. Meanwhile downstairs, they kept the old front room but demolished the dating kitchen lean too – and instead had a huge extension with an open-plan kitchen living area, bringing the outside in.
Damion said: ‘When you walk through the house here the glazing is so free from obstruction.’
Meanwhile Matt compared it to an infinity pool, while Sam said: ‘its another feature which people comment on.’
The extension allowed the couple to knock down several walls in groundfloor of their home, creating a large open plan living space
However many of those watching were left stunned by the extension, and questioned how they had been given planning permission (pictured)
Matt said: ‘Our architect was keen for this massive expanse of glass with minimal obstruction, but it gives us this picture out into the back garden. We’re able to watch our kids running around.’
However many of those watching were left stunned by the extension, and questioned how they had been given planning permission.
‘The planner that passed that extension must have been paid off,’ another commented. ‘They’re literally laughing all the way to the bank. Shockingly ugly.’
A third wrote: ‘What the hell? That is a vile horrible ridiculous looking extension. How and why is that presenter being so stupidly pompous and complimentary about it? It’s a disaster.’
Most of the viewers watching stated the extension was ‘ugly’, with some questioning how the couple had had the planning signed off by the council
