Aaron and Darcy, their 2 children, and Darcy's mom, Hiroko all live in a quaint North Carolina home. 5 people in a small house can seem crowded at times, especially in the kitchen, where both Aaron and Hiroko love to cook. The problem is that their kitchen has seen better days; it's dark, cramped, out of date, just plan ugly and they're tired of it. Both Aaron and Darcy have really busy schedules, and want to take advantage of Darcy's Spring Break to finally renovate their horrible kitchen. However, this gives them only a week to gut the entire kitchen and add new walls, ceilings, floors, cabinets, countertops, electrical outlets, and appliances. While Hiroko watches the kids, Aaron and Darcy run into all sorts of issues in this kitchen overhaul. From delays in getting the cabinets, to arguments over ice and trash, to drywall disasters, and a missing child, this renovation proves to be a bigger headache then they bargained for. Especially when a huge electrical problem is discovered, causing Aaron and Darcy to reflect and realize that this renovation saved their lives. This is one renovation that's truly life changing.
