Fighting the onset of colder weather, she must first tackle an exterior makeover, figuring out how to clean up the front yard and replace the icky yellow and brown paint job. Inside, she begins the difficult task of cleaning out all the left over junk so the plumbers and electrician can get started.

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.

Grand Dining Room

What do you do when thieves have stolen priceless windows and hardwood flooring from your twentieth-century estate? If you're Nicole Curtis, you adapt and recreate! As Nicole tackles the spacious dining room of her tudor home, she must use custom leaded glass and modern oak flooring to mask the missing details. In order to restore her formal dining room to its former grandness, Nicole makes sure that the new elements blend seamlessly with the original style of the home. A combination of antique and reproduction furniture, glass, and flooring leave the space stately and polished.

Kitchen Conundrums

Nicole searches for a set of salvaged cabinets to use in the Harriet Project's upper unit kitchen. With her own house still up for sale, Nicole visits the historical society to see if she can discover any new information about the property. Meanwhile, the homeowners of the Harriet Project make a decision that Nicole doesn't agree with.

Scrap Wood Basement

Helping out a sick friend, Nicole takes on a basement restoration project and does her best to use as much scrap wood and materials as she possibly can. The foundation has structural issues that she must first repair and she also has plans to create a full bathroom using the extra space in the basement.

Solarium Refresh

Once a boarded-up eyesore, Nicole's first-floor solarium has the potential to be the best room in the house. With the help of her dad and a yard-sale crockpot, Nicole starts with an often overlooked detail: window hardware. Boiling the hardware removes years of paint and leaves them shiny and new, a great first step in making the solarium a bright and welcoming entryway to her Grand Blvd. estate. Some antique mirrors and light fixtures go a long way to make the room feel cozy and fresh, while maintaining the antique-feel of the 100-year old home. Nicole takes a much needed break with her son to celebrate a Thanksgiving parade in her home city, Detroit.

Powder Room Predicament

Nicole's next project is restoring an historic mansion in the Summit district of St. Paul. Unfortunately some key rooms have been completely ripped apart and her first task is to rebuild the gutted powder room from scratch. With the original materials no longer available Nicole gets creative with custom paneling and salvaged tile and creates a brand new room with a 1904 feel.

Faulty Foundation

With the Dollar House project an official 'Go', Nicole's first project is a major one: lifting the house to fix the crumbling foundation. Even though this means the brick chimney has to go, Nicole finds a way to reuse the old brick and begins to add a little character back into the living room.

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.

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.

Jack and Jill Suite

What's Nicole Curtis' favorite kind of bathroom to renovate? One with almost entirely original fixtures! With the help of a 1920's mint condition porcelain sink, Nicole is able to transform the Jack and Jill bathroom in her Grand Blvd. home without sacrificing its antique integrity. Two bedrooms - one girl's, one boy's - lay on either side. After stripping the wallpaper, restoring the original oak floors and adding some new paint, the rooms are almost move-in ready. All that's left is for her son to stage the room with personal touches, and clean the unique Inglenook that provides a centerpiece for the boy's room.

Master Bath Overhaul

If Nicole is going to turn the entire third floor of her Grand Blvd. estate into a master suite, a custom new bathroom will have to be the first step. She starts with an overcrowded, neglected bath that doesn't fit her grandiose plans. By knocking down a wall and changing some angles, the floorplan is expanded to include a double vanity, claw-foot tub and walk-in shower. Despite a small plumbing mishap, Nicole's new bathroom is shaping up to be one of the most original and inviting spaces in her 1913 auction home.

Rehab Attic

Nicole's 1913 mansion in the heart of Detroit is topped with an old, dusty attic that was once servant's quarters. Though some homeowners might have just seen room for storage, Nicole sees the opposite: a master suite! A sitting room, dressing room and gorgeous master bedroom take form, thanks to a little salvaging and a lot of hard work. Nicole never wastes original fixtures, even if it's an ancient broken mirror or a period chandelier from a local commercial building. From gross to gorgeous, Nicole makes her master suite a million dollar space on a "Detroit budget."
