All About Nicole

About the Show

Nicole Curtis is saving historic houses, one broken-down fireplace at a time.

Whether it’s managing her rugged crew or wrangling city officials, this single mom wields her hammer with skill and returns condemned properties to their place as the pride of the neighborhood.
Season 4, Episode 14

Bungalow Brickwork

Working to restore a 1920's bungalow, Nicole must tackle a ton of brickwork, including the need to rebuild the front steps after years of water damage have pulled them away from the front of the house. The decorative planter boxes have fallen apart over the years and pretty much need to be rebuilt from scratch. The roof is also in desperate need of repair, as a giant hole has allowed water to damage the integrity of the interior walls.

The Finished Product

With only a few weeks left to finish the Harriet Project, Nicole and the homeowners divide and conquer to complete the lower unit's living room and kitchen. Nicole visits a local high school shop class to work on a raditator cover for the living room. As the project nears completion, Nicole receives news on the Minnehaha house.

Bathroom Rebuild

Heading up to the second floor, Nicole takes on the bathroom, one of the house's dirtiest and grimiest rooms. She brings it down to the studs, adding clean lines with white subway tile and re-purposes an old dresser into one of her signature vanities. Since the house was lifted, the front porch has been floating in space, so Nicole tears it down to begin rebuilding a new one, giving the house an inviting and classic look.

Distressed Dining Room

Nicole turns her attention to taking the pink and gold kitsch out of the formal dining room. Restoring the floors, swapping out sconces and repairing the stained glass windows take the room out of the 1970s and back to 1904. Meanwhile at another of her houses a buyer pulls out at the 11th hour causing Nicole to make some quick decisions.

Looks Are Everything

The interior is coming along beautifully and now it's time to give the exterior of the family house in Akron a facelift. LeBron and his kids spar off with Nicole in a duel of diggers to tear out the front steps and regrade the yard. A tricky design challenge makes laying the new path stretch late into the night, but it's all worth it come morning. Lebron helps put up the flag and now the family has a home they can be proud of.

A Grand Exterior

Nicole makes a spur-of-the-moment bid and wins a house sight-unseen at auction. Will this Grand Boulevard tudor be a case of buyer's remorse? Nicole visits the 6-bedroom, 3-bath manor and falls in love with its historic details and rustic charm. With some new paint, a landscaping overhaul and custom woodwork, the former eyesore begins to look revitalized. By working with the home's original style, Nicole is able to enhance its curb appeal without losing any of its early-Twentieth Century grand beauty.

Rebuild Below

A dark basement that could have easily been overlooked as an unsalvageable and unusable space is transformed into a gorgeous family room. Exposed brick and an amazing fireplace are too beautiful for Nicole to ignore, so she sets out to elevate the room from subterranean cellar to functional family room. Nicole sources local salvaged pine for the flooring and restores it to its former shine, while using cost-effective new trim, stained to match. Finally, a vintage art Deco bar is hauled down below to serve as a focal point for the new space. Using as much as she can from the original home and time period, Nicole rebuilds a basement beyond even its original potential.

Five-Star Foyer

Nicole takes the dark and dim front entryway and opens it up, removing soffits, repairing original stained glass windows, and hunting for salvaged parts to rebuild the fabulous staircase. She must also find a way to repair the front porch floorboards to keep them from falling off the foundation.

Back Yard on a Budget

Nicole doesn't have much to work with in the back yard, but she's making the best with what she's got. Lifting up the garage to pour a new foundation beats the cost of building a new one from scratch. This house also needs a new roof, which is a first for Nicole on a project. Nicole picks a unique color to help make the house stand out in the neighborhood.

Kitchen Overhaul

Nicole teams with basketball superstar LeBron James to renovate a special family's house in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. They tackle the dingy dilapidated kitchen first. The team guts the kitchen by ripping out the cabinets, a first for Nicole who typically likes to keep the original structure, and install solid wood cabinets, granite countertops and brand new appliances. They also create an outdoor patio and new driveway for the family to relax in and play - what else, basketball. Nicole's family, LeBron's family and the foundation all pitch in to overhaul this home in a week - can they finish?

All About Family

Nicole Curtis tackles the family room of her family's home! Off the pool lies a dated family room, covered in wood paneling and boasting a large mechanical room for the pool equipment. Nicole sees opportunity for a beautiful bathroom, and an updated, retro family room that pays homage to her Grandfather's original plans. It wouldn't be Nicole if some gorgeous wood, and not-so-gorgeous hunting themed paneling, is lovingly re purposed to update the room into a modern yet rustic haven.

Once the nasty old carpet is removed to reveal beautiful old pine floors, Nicole can start to see her vision for a comfortable, functional and very stylish living space.

Even while busy in Akron, Nicole never stops salvaging & designs these spaces around new photos of the family using old windows saved from a dumpster.
