Helen has big plans for her tiny (55 square metre), one bedroom apartment. On a forty to $60,000 budget she wants Shaynna to turn it into a chic, New York style industrial warehouse haha. Her deadline is a looming overseas holiday when she wants to lock the door knowing her new pad is finished and she can let it out to holiday guests. Shaynna concentrates work on the open plan kitchen/living room and tiny bathroom, while Yas is tasked with the creation of a study nook, but in this minute space, the question is, where? Helen increased the budget to $80,000 to get everything on her wish list.
