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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Boarded Up Beauty

Nicole is on a mission to save vacant homes from the wrecking ball and her latest project is taking on a boarded up and previously condemned home from the late 1880s. The basement is full of structural issues, from rotten support beams and a crumbling concrete floor to the need for a new staircase that meets building code. Also on Nicole's list is turning the tiny first floor bathroom into a spacious powder room.

Master Suite Remade

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. Changing the floor plan can wreck havoc on original hardwood floors, but Nicole hasn't found a floor yet that she can't save. 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.
