In the new seven-episode series Why the Heck Did I Buy This House?, Kim Wolfe — designer, home renovator and busy mom of three — uses her expert skills to help clients who snapped up their home at first sight but are now stuck in lifeless spaces with dysfunctional layouts, outdated style and overlooked potential.

Kim goes all in — pouring concrete foundations, nailing roof beams, installing framing and hanging drywall to bring her design vision to life and will make her client families finally fall in love with their reinvented dream home.

In the premiere episode, Kim meets a couple who bought their house for the large backyard and its lush fruit trees but are left with an odd layout and wasted space that doesn't fit their family.
