George and Rosa's basement has been a giant family closet for years, also storing Rosa's beautiful artwork. Their house is also the family hangout for the neighborhood kids. The space is overwhelming George and Rosa. Designer Genevieve and her team have been called in to shine some light on the project. First assignment for the family: to empty out the basement and purge, purge, purge. Along the way, piles of Rosa's beautiful artwork are discovered in a neglected pile. Genevieve invites the neighborhood kids to weigh in on the plan and view the room as their hangout too. Genevieve's plan is to add lots of storage, lots of light, and beautiful textures and fabrics to warm up the space. But when the weather turns sour, work on installing forty-five sheets of drywall stalls and the project is held up. The team works into the night where they find light at the end of the proverbial 'renovation tunnel.'
