Highlights From My Big Amazing Renovation

Lakehouse Renovation

Renovation more than doubles the size of this 1980s-era A-frame house.

Open Well-Lit Living Room

A dramatic change in the Rao home. With the back wall gone that separated the hallway and entrance from the living room, the room feels twice the size. Additional light flows in from the doorway entrance and the new open staircase. Added lighting on the ceiling and newly repaired windows fill this room with light and warmth. New furniture and flowers make the room feel comfortable, inviting, and warm. As seen on HGTV's Cousins On Call.

Outdoor Space for Creating

The Schroeders wanted a place to play and be creative together, so Chip Wade and his team from Elbow Room answered the family's requests. He created gardens throughout the space so that the family could spend time together in nature. The crew also included aspects that the family enjoys, such as a chicken coop, a hammock, a fire pit and an art studio.

Oil-Rubbed Knobs

Rubbed brass knobs add a touch of history to this brand-new space.

Outdoor Entertaining Space with Many Uses

As part of the Pearson home transformation in Atlanta, Georgia, licensed contractor Chip Wade designed a custom wood couch on a track that allows for moving the couch from indoor to outdoor. This seating option allows for either space to be a place to relax. The Pearson home renovation also included a fire pit, lounging areas, a grill area and game lawn, as seen on DIY Network's Elbow Room.

Open Concept Kitchen with Lots of Light

When the Kitchen Cousins tore down the wall that separated the kitchen from the dining room, it gave the Pasquella family an open area that feels twice the size. What was once a home office, is now a large dining room area that sits directly across from a new kitchen and center island. By taking down that wall, the family can cook and entertain without feeling separated. By removing the wall, the kitchen now has twice as much light. The new dining room table was custom made by John Colaneri and Anthony Carrino from old wood and steel.

Chip and Joanna Gaines in Herb Garden

Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines have taken an awkward atrium in Becky and Heath's home and transformed it into a open-air herb garden and space for entertaining.

Asian Style Gazebo and Koi Pond

The Asian style gazebo and koi pond in the back yard that John Colaneri and Anthony Carrino from HGTV's Cousins on Call, have built for the Park family. This gazebo gives the Parks the perfect, serene space to relax and getaway from their everyday lives.

Open Concept Kitchen Flowing Into Dining Room

In order to add a stove, cabinets and appliances in the kitchen, the french doors had to be removed and a wall need to be added. Because valuable light was being taken away, the Kitchen Cousins added two skylights into the ceiling. After tearing the dining room wall down and turning the dining room into the kitchen, there is a whole new flow and life to the atmosphere and energy of the kitchen and dining room area. What once was a cold empty ding room is now a large kitchen that opens to a large dining room.

Firehouse Pole in Converted Residence

The original pole still stands in a historic firehouse-turned-residence in San Francisco. The traditional building now features a modern interior that speaks to its industrial roots.

Guest Bedroom, After

As seen on Beach Flip, decorations include patriotic artwork painted by David Bromstad in the second floor guest bedroom at the renovated Comfort Breeze condo.

About the Show

My Big Amazing Renovation captures the thrill of renovation when renovating goes to extremes, like when a small 1500-square-foot bungalow becomes a large 5000-square-foot dream home.
