Downsizing for a Fresh Start

Michelle Bianchi, who is going through a divorce, wants to make a smooth transition and have a fresh start her kids. She is currently living in a two-family house located a half a block from the beach. She knows she will need to downsize, as her budget is low for that area. She would like to have at least three bedrooms, two baths, space for a playroom and a separate office. She also would love to stay close the beach, since their lives revolve around spending time there in the summer. Host Brandie Malay and architect/designer Barry Wood show them three houses and then Wood reveals a design plan for each house that is customized for Bianchi's needs.
