Simon and Christi dreamed of living in a warehouse beside a body of water. The one they finally found in Barnardsville, North Carolina literally has a river running through the property, but it's devoid of walls, kitchen and insulation. Little by little, they are building their dream home inside the warehouse, but with two small kids, they are ready for a master bath. Combining new materials with some saved from their architectural salvage business, the plan is grand and the timeframe is tight. They plan to raise the floor, frame walls, install a sink, shower, toilet, lighting fixtures and new windows in just five days. Fortunately, Christi has secured five days of daycare and lots of help from friends and family. However, when their children fall ill and can't go to daycare, the plan erodes -- despite the parents' best efforts to keep plugging along.
