Season 1, Episode 6

History in the Making

After moving to New York City to pursue his architect career, Bill is ready to settle down with his fiance Jody in the small town he's loved since childhood. Ben and Erin show the couple two very different homes -- a dilapidated historic house with character that requires a ton of work, and a Craftsman that needs updates and a personality. With an all-in budget of $200,000, Ben and Erin transform the couple's pick into a dream home with a gorgeous kitchen and custom millwork.
