The Team: Page and Mitch

Page Turner and Mitch Glew, the power duo behind Fix My Flip, are back on the block and looking for redemption. This time, they're up against three other teams who couldn't quite secure the win in blocks past: Renovation Island’s Sarah and Bryan Baeumler (Season 4); Bargain Block’s Keith Bynum and Evan Thomas (Season 3); and Unsellable Houses's Leslie Davis and Lyndsay Lamb (Season 3). “We won one week last year, and it felt amazing,” said Page, a realtor and house flipper. Along with Mitch, an expert builder and craftsman, the pair has a combined 45 years of experience. And, of course, they came to win. “Our house last year was beautiful,” Page said. “Our biggest mistake was that we spent too much money too fast. We’re going to plan a lot better this year.”

A Season Full of Firsts

Season 5’s setting is Treasure Island, Florida, the show’s first waterfront locale. With front row views of the sparkling Boca Ciega Bay, Page and Mitch's 3,600-square-foot property features a dock and pool to maximize coastal living. In another first, the luxury homes, valued at $1.7 million a piece, are attached — which means each team shares a wall with a next-door neighbor and must collaborate on the exterior style of the structure and grounds. One thing that hasn’t changed are the rules: Each week, teams design and build a different zone in their homes and are judged by HGTV stars. With six weeks and $250,000 to put toward outfitting the home in their signature style, Page and Mitch were ready to earn bragging rights and the coveted Rock the Block street sign in their name.

The Kitchen, Before

In yet another twist, the four teams worked with a completely open-concept first floor with no interior walls to demo. “We get to lay out our entire lay of the land,” Page said. “It’s literally a blank canvas.” The first part of the challenge? Determining where to position the kitchen. “Where we place it will affect the rest of this entire humongous space,” Page said. The duo decided to place their kitchen adjacent to the porch overlooking the water and enhance the indoor-outdoor connection with a new panel of bifold windows above a counter that straddles the exterior wall for ultimate open-air living. Budget-wise, they planned to spend $75,000 by taking on as much handiwork themselves as they can.

The Kitchen, After

“It feels like a vacation in Tulum,” said Egypt Sherrod of the “coastal chic” kitchen. She, along with her husband and Married to Real Estate co-host Mike Jackson, judged the first week’s showdown. Page and Mitch wowed the duo with their decision to add a sweeping bifold window that takes advantage of the coastal Florida views. The functional and attractive layout, abundance of storage, 10-foot-long island with a rounded edge outfitted with tambour (curved wood paneling) detailing and upholstered stools further impressed Mike and Egypt. Page and Mitch repeated the tambour accent above the range, adding ceiling beams in a subtle hue. They also brought in basket-inspired pendant lights for organic texture. “This whole location screams vacation,” Mitch said. “Why not make the house also scream vacation?”
