Heather Tom is a Daytime Emmy-winning actress, and every word of her performance is scripted. But when she's not in the studio, she likes to tackle projects that aren't as cut-and-dried. Together with her husband, James, she has a second career: a renovation and design business, bringing fresh and eclectic style to clients' homes. So juggling two full time careers, plus trying to build a happy home life with James as newlyweds - all while expecting a baby - requires some serious improvisation on Heather's part. And as she and James discover with each new space, every project is a renovation unscripted. Like Jason and Samantha's cabana. Heather and James are friends with the couple , and have always loved their outdoor space, but Heather has been dying to redo it. Instead of being the highlight of the backyard, it's badly decorated and cluttered and they never use it. So Heather and James have come up with a way to change all that, and along with Petey and crew are ready to convert the cabana. The goal? Making it a functional extension of the home. By making the fireplace the central feature, installing custom cabinetry, and using 100-year old wood from the original L.A. Railway to create a beautiful mantle, Heather and James may have struck the perfect balance. Let's hope the couple thinks so!
