Eli and Heather Cockrum have a laundry room in their garage, but they have no way of accessing it from inside their house. So, they've decided to renovate their dining room and create a stairwell leading into the basement. It's an extensive project, but they're confident they can get it done in just a few days. That is, until they are plagued with multiple set backs ranging from mismeasuring a support wall and saw dust shooting into Eli's eye, causing him severe pain. Finally, when they realize the stair spindles are too tall, they decide that their renovation is over...for now.
