Kody and Elisabeth Powell moved from the snowy banks of Utah to the unbearable summertime temps of Austin so that Kody can attend the University of Texas. The couple bought the house with the goal of renovating everything in sight-starting with the kitchen. Almost every surface in the kitchen is painted blue, so they set out to turn their self-described "blue nightmare" into an updated space complete with new appliances, new flooring, new shelving, and of course, a new color. With only a few days before Kody begins classes, the rush is on for the couple to essentially gut their kitchen and start all over. Between a pesky microwave that refuses to come off the wall, a lost receipt that derails an entire day's work, a two-year-old who craves constant attention, and the couple's lack of professional expertise, Kody and Elisabeth begin to seriously doubt they'll ever finish in time. But with a lot of focus and determination, Kody and Elisabeth finish with no time to spare-their work culminating in an ultra-modern space the family can only describe as "awesome."
