Homeowners Heather and Damien Holmberg have lived in their home for barely a year and already it is too small. With a 1-year-old baby and another on the way, they're going to need more room. They’re thinking ahead and looking for more space before it's too late.

Real estate expert Bethany Souza pays a visit to give these homeowners her honest evaluation of the home. Walking up to the home, she asks if anybody lives here. The tall grass and overgrown landscaping make the home look abandoned, she thinks. However, she is pleasantly surprised when she walks in the door to see a nice living and dining room. Her opinion turns sour again once she enters the kitchen. She refers to the space as dank, dingy and dizzy. She is confused by the sunroom. It seems to be part of the house, but the patio furniture and exterior window on an interior wall make the space feel like a back porch.

Designer Monica Pedersen agrees with Souza's opinions and has a $2,000 plan that will make this home a must-have for potential buyers.

Step 1: Axe the awful awning over the front entryway, and spruce up the neglected landscaping.

Step 2: Brighten up and declutter the dark, overcrowded kitchen.

Step 3: Clearly define the sunroom and make it flow with the rest of the house.

Carpenters Robert North and Chad Lopez are ready to lend their expertise and talent to make sure the job gets done.
