Season 1, Episode 2

Big Family Battered Basement Battle

Joe and Jennifer Bavender's basement "rec room" is more of a "wreck room" after their six children made this space their own for several years. Now their parents are gutting the basement and the kids are helping to build a new multi-purpose room in the space they destroyed. Professional contractor and host Sean Smith is there to help the Bavender family through this basement re-do. An expert panel of contractors assess the room before demo and they'll be back when the project is done to estimate how much the remodel cost. If they outsmart the contractors the family will win the difference.
