Season 4, Episode 7

Getting Started

Dale and Erin had a plan to buy a house, then get married. They bought a detached house in a rediscovered suburb first and now can't afford the rest. Erin's large student loan means that right now she cannot contribute to the mortgage or the bills- never mind their wedding dreams. The good news is that this house has a basement rental unit. However, it's a weird and woodsy pine paradise with an abundance of out-dated, custom woodwork by the previous owner. Dale and Erin feel it needs to be refreshed and a lot of details, including a cedar sauna, have to be re-jigged before this apartment will appeal to the right tenant. While Dale and Erin are practical people, they are completely inexperienced when it comes to renovations and rentals.
