Expecting Parents Rush to Finish a Massive Renovation of Their California Home Before Baby Arrives

Mariam and Ben are expecting their first baby so they're ready to get out of their cramped Santa Monica, CA, condo and into a home of their own. But even with a budget of over a million dollars, finding a place they can both agree on in the area's expensive market won't be easy. Their agent Mike Springer needs to find a ranch for her, something modern for him, an open concept for her, a closed concept for him and while he wants a pool, she definitely does not. Which means once they get the keys, they'll need to tackle some major renovations to get everything they both want. With help from designer Rona Graf and contractor Guy Sharabi, they'll face everything from corroded plumbing to catastrophic floors -- not to mention a little girl who makes an early arrival. But if they can survive all the stress, eventually they'll be rewarded with a stunning new home that the whole family will love.
