Luke and Sarah Allen live in a nice home in a nice neighborhood, but the house was built in the 1950s when rooms were small and choppy. This is an issue for the Allens because Luke is a youth leader at a local high school and they need an open space to hold meetings with the kids. So Luke and Sarah decide to find a solution on their own and begin renovating, starting by knocking down the wall that separates the two rooms they want to combine. After days spent disagreeing on the safest way to take down their load-bearing wall and trying to figure out how to lift a 700-pound beam to replace it with, the Allens finally end up with the space and comfort they needed.
