Salvaged Back Yard

Moving back outside, Nicole begins to clean up all the debris from the yard and comes up with a plan to use salvaged materials from the house to create a cute little back yard area.

Cracked Pipe Kitchen

Work continues on Nicole's project in her hometown of Detroit, Michigan. The 1920s duplex lower unit's kitchen and bathroom need a lot of work, and fire damage isn't the only thing causing problems. The main plumbing stack that runs between both rooms has a huge crack in it, causing years of water damage that has the wall crumbling at the touch. A room off the back of the kitchen seems to have no purpose until Nicole comes up with the idea to turn it into a home office.

Burned Out Bathroom

A majority of the fire damage to the Detroit house was on the second floor and Nicole takes on rehabbing the upper unit's kitchen and bathroom. Even though she has to retile the bathtub area, Nicole is able to save an original medicine chest in the bathroom. A visit to her grandparent's home reminds Nicole where her passion comes from.

Kitchen Overhaul

When it comes to restoring kitchens, Nicole Curtis' rule is that it should look old and work like new! In her Grand Blvd. home, she has to work with a large kitchen that offers little wall space. After a couple of re-designs and some custom woodwork, she finally settles on a layout that allows for new, modern appliances while maintaining important design elements, such as the original upper cabinets. Despite some setbacks - including a literal hole in the wall - Nicole combines the old with the new to create a gorgeous kitchen that maintains its original charm while offering the comforts of the 21st century.

Breaking the Woodwork Rules

Nicole begins work on the interior of the Case Ave house and is faced with a living and dining room full of gorgeous woodwork and original pocket doors that have been painted over the years. It'll take hours and hours of sanding and stripping, but Nicole just can't leave them the way she found them. Once she sets her mind to something, there's no stopping her.

Leaky Bedroom Disaster

Nicole is ready to tackle the 2nd floor of the house - but one rainy day proves just how damaged the 100 year old roof is. Severe leaks are threatening to destroy multiple rooms, so Nicole gets on top of the house to inspect the damage. Most people would tear up the original clay tile and do a complete replacement, but not Nicole Curtis! Despite the extra cost, new tile is blended with old to keep the original, unique look of the house. Once the roof is water tight, two upstairs bedrooms are ready to be restored. A fresh window seat, antique glass knobs, and a stairwell re-do get Nicole closer to finishing her Grand 2nd floor.

A Room of Their Own

Nicole, LeBron and the LeBron James Family Foundation continue with their project to renovate a needy family's home into a renovated beauty. 11 year old Mariah deserves a room fit for a princess, just not a pink one! And her brothers will no longer share a room and get to pick their own colors for their own rooms. To finish on time LeBron's army of volunteers steps up, the family lends a hand and Nicole puts her personal touch on each room for these special kids. What will they say when they see their rooms?

Brick by Brick Restoration

The Summit mansion hasn't been painted since 1972 and needs a major face lift. After years of damage, all of the outdoor wood railing and detail are rotting and need to be replaced. Nicole rips out the rotting wood and repaints them to match the original color of the brick. To complete the look of the historic home, Nicole builds new brick columns with brick on the deck. Nicole's son Ethan learns some of her renovation tricks when he pitches in and replaces some of the original beams and runs errands around town.

Working to create a master suite upstairs, Nicole tries to figure out a way to incorporate the old kitchen pantry into a new master bathroom.

With a majority of the home's windows left broken from when it was abandoned, Nicole must track down the manufacturer to order replacement parts.

Revived Exterior

With work on the 4th Street house nearly complete, Nicole continues to fix up the neglected exterior. The decorative fish scales and siding need repair and the whole house deserves a fresh coat of paint. In order to give this house a second chance in the neighborhood, Nicole must also add some curb appeal by building a fence and taming the wild lawn.
