A Boston Couple Takes on a Major Overhaul of their First Home Together

Debbie and Sean have been living with their respective families near Boston, MA. Ready to strike out on their own, they are looking to buy their first house together. Debbie, a real estate agent, is set on finding a Cape Cod style home that she can overhaul. Sean, however, prefers a more rustic look; he's also wary of undertaking too many renovations. Debbie finds them several places to look at, but agreeing on one proves to be a challenge. Once they do, work gets underway and quickly takes on a life of its own. What starts out as a simple kitchen update spearheaded by designer Tiffany LeBlanc turns into a redo of the entire house. The ups and downs of renovation prove to be a challenge for everyone, especially when it comes to the ever-mounting costs. And with Debbie acting as the project's general contractor, she faces a steep learing curve in the world of construction. But after many months of dust and demo, they come out with a beautiful home for themselves and their family.
