Season 1, Episode 13

From Flooded to Fabulous

Lynda and Desmond McGoey have a big home, and an even bigger family. With five growing children, they wanted to turn their basement into a much-needed living space, as well as fix the exterior foundation capping. But when their contractor started demanding more and more money, and doing less and less work, they looked into his license and found out it was merely his disconnected cell phone number! After he disappeared with all their cash, the basement filled with water - and mold - causing health hazards for their young children and further limiting their already limited space.
