Victorian Glory

Daren and Beth help a Glen Ridge, NJ, family restore the classic details and vintage charm of their 130-year-old Victorian home. They begin their construction project in the kitchen where the maze-like structure is transformed to its original expanded and Victorian-style open layout. Next, they look to completely gut-renovate and expand the bathroom before installing a mudroom with cute and functional cubbies for the kids. Everything seems to be going according to plan until they discover some old plaster with asbestos in it. Will this discovery derail their progress?
