Host Matt Blashaw challenges a feisty couple to finish their full basement like pros for a chance to win cash. When the project is finished, Matt, along with professional contractor and guest expert, Shawn Miller, will judge the quality of the finished work and price it out. If married couple Valdis and Emma Undiks are able to do it for less, they win the difference in cash. Valdis has a military background and likes to be the boss. He masters all the details and keeps to tight deadlines. Emma lets him think he's in charge, but won't take no for an answer when it comes to having things her way. They thrive on butting heads, and there's plenty to disagree about as this dynamic duo attempt to turn their big, unfinished basement into four separate spaces: a family room, a bathroom, a storage room and a music room for their two young sons. His need to take charge and her strong opinions could be the driving force for a big win. But with a pre-planned, week-long family vacation smack in the middle of their project, they could end up with a giant mess.
