Season 5, Episode 1

University Fee Fixer

Jasmine is the proud single mother of 20-year-old university student, Calvin. Three months ago she sold the nicely renovated house where she raised her son to buy a run down rooming house in an up and coming area. Her plan is to live on the main level, in a two-bed apartment and renovate the upstairs to create a two-storey apartment so that she can contribute to her son's education costs. As soon as she took possession she had the upstairs gutted, installed a new furnace and windows, replaced the knob and tube wiring and unexpectedly also had to replace the rotted roof. She has spent 60% of her budget on these essential home improvements and the apartment is still gutted to the bare studs. She's overwhelmed about the myriad of design decisions that have to be made and realizes that she's in way over her head, and out of her element. Jasmine needs a solid plan to get this apartment rented before tuition fees are due.
