Bryan Baeumler, host of Disaster DIY, is used to applying his tough love to the uninformed, misinformed and just plain lazy do-it-yourselfers of the world. But now he's got his own mega DIY project: building his own home from scratch in just six months. From the demolition of his present bungalow to rebuilding a new state-of-the-art home, we share the joy and pain from Bryan's humorous point of view. Bryan's passion to teach others building and renovating skills is put to the test as he teaches his apprentice the essentials of home construction. We also get to know Bryan's family who must adapt to the additional demands and pressures. While Bryan is all about structure and build, his wife, Sarah, is all about finish and function. Conflicts arise as they try to translate to each other their different visions and priorities for their dream house. Miscalculations, novice errors and sloppy apprenticing all wear on the frustrations of Bryan, Sarah and the crew. All these potential pitfalls add to the weekly drama and challenge of building your own home.
