Finishing work continues at the home site of Anita and Brad Feder's home as a bevy of tradesmen work away on landscaping and installing cabinets throughout the house. When the final shipment of tile arrives, another crew goes right to work while the Feders go on a field trip to check on granite. The move-in date is up for grabs until general contractor Gene Goldstein issues an ultimatum.

Landscaping is underway at the Feders new home site. At long last, the custom-made cabinets have been installed in the kitchen and Anita Feder is thrilled. Now they have to deal with tension when order furniture.

Exterior work continues with sidewalks being poured while the Feders go on a field trip to finalize the color for the granite. The final shipment of tile arrives, allowing the crews to finish the master shower, master bedroom entry and the porches. And Brad’s custom-designed home automation system is put to the test. Finishing work continues with a specialized painter working on murals, faux finishes and a special gold leaf ceiling.

Tile and granite are going down according to plan, but installing Brad’s spiral staircase in the library is quite a challenge. The move-in date keeps getting pushed back as finishing is taking forever. Brad continues to monitor quality control at the site while Anita begins to pack at the old house. Later on she visits the house and feels as is she’s living a dream when she sees her new kitchen.
