Season 16, Episode 7

Candice turns an unfinished basement into a fabulous family room.

Hazel and Jude are one dynamic duo! As busy as life gets with careers, 10 year old twins, coaching the kids sports teams, and finding time for family activities, they don't shy away from a challenge. They bought their home six years ago, and, with an attitude of 'how hard can it be?' they spent 18 months renovating ? on their own! As it turns out, Jude has amazing skills and really loves the work. Hazel's learned a lot too, but Jude can build anything. He has the talent, he has the tools, but, he has a problem-- finishing. They have a large, basement that could be perfect for a family room, but with so many projects 'almost' finished, Hazel's reluctant to start anything new. Right now, the awkward unfinished basement is just 'dumping ground storage' and a place for Jude's tools. What Hazel would really like is a cozy place for the kids to be able to hang out with friends, do their homework, and watch TV. And, since she and Jude are both expert sewers, Hazel would love an organized space to enjoy sewing and be able to leave a project on the go without cluttering up the dining room. But Hazel is determined that what gets started gets completely finished! So she's counting on Candice to create a space that is functional, fabulous-- and finished! Whether that inspires Jude to finish projects in the rest of the house, remains to be seen!
