Demolition and excavation continues and with it some unpleasant surprises for Silene and Geno Rush. Some of the walls they were hoping to save in order to save money may not be salvageable. And an oil tank is found buried outside the kitchen. What it contains may mean much more money out of the Rush's limited budget. And a freak snowstorm pushes the project behind schedule. Geno's long days at work, at the building site and taking care of baby Jada are beginning wear on his nerves. Tension and tempers flare-up as Geno locks horns with contractor Jerry Janeck over a favorite magnolia tree that has been "pruned" with excavation equipment.
