Desperate Houses Revisited RTÉ One, Thursday 7.00pm

Programme 6

Anne & Ashley Kerr Lim - Boyle, Co. Roscommon

Ashley (Chinese raised in Malaysia) is a retired pilot, currently studying cookery in Killybegs. Anne is retired but works part time in a call centre in Carraig-on-Shannon.

When you arrive in Anne and Ashley's house the first thing you notice is that nothing is out of place. Fiona takes a look around and asks: "Why I am here?"

On the surface the house looks uncluttered but, as is the case with many homes, all the clutter is above their heads in the loft and attic. Anne and Ashley's problem is that they have moved from a large house to a cottage.

They have traveled extensively and have collected things from all over the world. However they have tried to fit the contents of a big house into a small one. The family has no real storage and Ashley would really like a study area as he completes his cookery studies.

With just three days and a budget of two thousand euro Interior Designer Fiona Wilson and the Desperate Houses team tackle a very common clutter problem that most families will relate to.
