In Pittsburgh, PA, siblings Leanne and Steve Ford target a dark, midcentury home that has been empty for over a decade. They transform this funky house into a sleek oasis with mold remediation, plenty of demo and a bridge build.
Steve and Leanne Ford are asked to tackle the first floor of an old Victorian row house that is drowning in wallpaper. Their first order of business is to brighten and lighten the whole space, then overhaul the dungeon of a kitchen to let the light shine in and reveal a simple, elegant design.
The Fords are tasked with updating the first floor of a regal Victorian house built in 1885. The owners of this elegant home are both young and traditional in their style, so Leanne looks to create an entertaining floor that's a perfect balance of new and old. A custom bar is then made from salvaged cabinets, and a layer of bold wallpaper with a romantic feel is installed. The end result is a blend of classic and contemporary, making for a one-of-a-kind home.
Steve and Leanne Ford are back at the Collins' midcentury home for the final phase of renovation. With a tight budget of $30,000, the Fords must find a way to fit all of their design ideas into the Collins' bedrooms and bathrooms, along with their out-of-date indoor pool. Along the way, they get inspiration after a trip to the historic Fallingwater house by Frank Lloyd Wright.
A young couple needs a larger space for them and their two kids, so Steve and Leanne decide to reconfigure the floor plan to transform their small house into a home with plenty of elbowroom. But with a new bathroom, master bedroom and kitchen, will Steve and Leanne find the space in the budget to fit in all their ideas?
