Season 1, Episode 2

Ted & Larry's Library

Heather Tom is a Daytime Emmy-winning actress, and every word of her performance is scripted. But when she's not in the studio, she likes to tackle projects that aren't as cut-and-dried. Together with her husband, James, she has a second career: a renovation and design firm, bringing fresh and eclectic style to clients' homes. But with one full-time television career, along with all of the press, promotion and rehearsals it entails, plus trying to build a happy home life with James as newlyweds - all while expecting a baby - requires some serious improvisation on Heather's part. And as she and James discover with each new space, every project is a renovation unscripted. Like Ted and Larry's library. It's a mishmash of mementos and memorabilia, and lacks a cohesive design. Ted has always wanted a haunted library, but Heather doesn't like theme rooms. So she and James, along with their best friend Petey, are ready to make a beautiful room, while making the homeowner's happy. They create a good balance by creating a hidden passageway with a bookcase, making the most of the high ceilings by adding built-in shelving, doing custom woodwork, and sprinkling in a few accessories to make it a little mysterious. And for their signature touch, Heather and James use a reclaimed object in each project they create. Will their homeowners be happy?
