About the show

Christopher Lee grew up hearing about his great-grandfather's once-stately Detroit residence lost in the Great Depression, and 87 years later, he bought it. Armed with a family photo from 1927, Chris, his wife Amy and their baby daughter Ruby are living in the house as they bring it back to its Roaring 20's glory. And with the house abandoned for years with collapsing ceilings, a leaking roof and holes in the floor, Chris and Amy have their work cut out for them.
