Season 4, Episode 11

Down Under to Over Their Head

Chris, Erin, and their baby Sebastian have been living in Chris's native Australia. But Australia's high cost of living and wanting to be closer to Erin's parents has prompted them to move back to her hometown of Milton, MA. They've been living with her family as they search for a place of their own. Erin is clear that she doesn't want a Cape Cod home, which she feels is all too common in New England. She'd prefer a contemporary split-level; Chris loves all things modern, paired with rustic elements like exposed beams. Of utmost importance is finding an in-law suite for Chris's parents, who visit for months at a time from Australia. They have a max budget of $600,000 which includes buying furniture and any renovations the place might need. Once they agree on a home, renovations begin straightaway, since Chris's parents are coming to visit in only 9 weeks. With a tight turnaround and rising costs, Chris & Erin struggle to finish extensive kitchen and basement updates in time for their guests.
