Season 4, Episode 13

Outdated House Gets a Much Needed Makeover

Picking up her West Coast life Fran moved to the Boston suburb of Norwood so her husband Tim could be close to his ailing mother. When it came time for them to sell Tim's family home, they opted to look for a place to buy in the same close knit neighborhood. Fran wants to find a house that's move-in-ready, and reminds her of her California upbringing. She prefers ranch style homes with lots of light and little renovation. Tim is adamant about buying a Cape Cod since that is what he grew up in, and is eager to take on a fixer-upper. With conflicting wish lists and a tight first-time buyers budget, finding a house that meets both their standards is quite a challenge. Once they find a place, staying on budget proves to be difficult as electrical and plumbing issues unexpectedly drain their funds. While money may be tight, they agree that hiring designer Elizabeth Benedict to blend their styles together is a smart decision if they want to get the kitchen of their dreams. As the kitchen progresses, Tim takes on renovating the master bathroom himself, infusing the space with a Cape Cod style. Watch as this fun-loving, competitive couple fight the odds to get their new home finished.
