The Upside to Downsizing

Betty-Lou and Eric love their upscale home of 23 years, but as they look to a more relaxed future, Eric sees a need to downsize. Although these two passionate gardeners transformed their backyard carport into a relaxing oasis, and they love the central location of their home, they can't agree on what to do next... they can, however, at least agree that their home needs a renovation. Betty-Lou stands by her house and thinks that some renovations will do the trick, but Eric thinks they are at the point in their lives where they should sell and move to some place smaller. Enter competitors Jillian and Todd. Designer Jillian and her team will try to bring this dated abode into the new millennium with a fully functional redesign while real estate agent Todd believes a smaller, turnkey home is the winning solution. Fed up with arguing about the upside to downsizing, Betty-Lou and Eric have to decide... can they love their home again or will they list it?
