First-Time house flippers Sandy and Maryse go on a quest to find the perfect house to make-over and flip for profit. After securing financing for their project, the ladies tour all over town looking for the right house. With their realtor Mike, they finally find a house they think will work. But when the house fails the home inspection the team has to go back on the hunt. Finally they come across a two-story fixer-upper that is ideal for their make-over plans. Once their bid is accepted the women get started on some early demo.
Sandy and Maryse start their house flip off strong with demos in the basement, kitchen, and bathroom. With great success in the basement, the ladies head to the store to pick out materials for their kitchen reno. As the next day of work begins, the ladies have decided to enlist the help of their kids with the kitchen demo. With the kitchen gutted and the bathroom demo under their belt, the ladies clash over an exterior paint job. But Maryse lets Sandy have this one, as Maryse is more concerned about her father's visit. Since he put up all the money for this project, what will he think when he sees his investment for the first time?
After finally getting the family going, Maryse joins Sandy on site, to wrap up their final demolition. Just as they toss the last pieces of tile in the dumpster, Sandy and Maryse jump into their next job: re-leveling the front yard. Work doesn't last long since Maryse's friend Linda, and Sandy's husband Peter drop in for unexpected visits. With the family and friends out of the way, Sandy and Maryse finally make some real progress, as they pave the way for some much-needed curb appeal.
With things calm on the homefront and demolition completed on the house, Sandy and Maryse take on the bathroom. What should take an hour and a half, turns into an afternoon of frustration when the ladies underestimate a fussy toilet. But a new day brings a new outlook, as the ladies re-tile the entire bathroom and start installing their new toilet - again. With the tile and toilet in place, the ladies move on to the living room, where they plan to update the brick fireplace with a primer and add an accent wall. Though Maryse is initially uncertain about Sandy's bold color pick, the ladies are both ecstatic with the final results.
With five weeks completed on the renovation, and minimal work completed in the bathroom, Sandy and Maryse must jump head first into the kitchen reno. After correcting mistakes in the kitchen, more trouble comes when Sandy's sister Debbie shows up to install a speaker system. After her crew drills through the new kitchen tile, mistakes keep compounding with the installation of the system. Though things aren't looking so well as the ladies argue over how to tile the bathroom shower, help arrives and so does much-needed progress.
The pressure is on as Sandy and Maryse try to get the house ready for the floor refinishing. They have three days and they still have to finish installing the kitchen cabinets, get the bathtub re-glazed, install the bathroom vanity, and clear everything off the floors. But, the vanity won't cooperate and the ladies decide to add a new handrail in the stairway. Adding more work just before the floors are about to get refinished is probably not the smartest move. Will they be ready when the floor refinishers knock on the door?
The floor refinishing keeps Sandy and Maryse away from the house for four days. They return to the house to find stunning hardwood floors that have been refinished to perfection. But there's no time to dwell - it's only six days before the open house. It's all hands on deck when Sandy and Maryse recruit their families to help them reach their open house deadline. They decide to fully stage the home in the hopes that it will sell faster. The pressures are enormous and magnified even more when there is no word from any potential buyers after their first open house. After many stressful weeks, an offer finally comes through and the ladies accept it. It's an emotional farewell after the ladies lock the doors for the last time.
