"After a decade of grief following the tragic death of their teenage son Matthew in 2012, Sue and Chris have finally decided it's time to move on. They're swapping their rural surroundings for something sunnier down south.

"Christina and Will discover some amazing items, including a collection of pieces by the famed carpenter Robert 'Mouseman' Thompson, and they breathe life back into some neglected furniture."
