Second Story Glory

Episode DTGR-204H

Jim and Karen's house is known as a poolside paradise. The current screened-in porch, however, isn't the best home office. Jim demolishes it for a two-story addition with a veranda roof deck that will make this castle complete. While the contractor builds the structure and seals it off from the impending rain, Jim finds his deals in the details. He installs his own radiant floors and flooring, builds a custom bar for the all-season room, and puts in an organizational system for the new walk-in closet on the second floor. With Jim's hands-on involvement and physical labor, this couple manages to save money and keep the cool amenities that make their house the neighborhood hot-spot.
