Season 3, Episode 11

The Young and the Desperate

Mike and Claudia are cute, young newlyweds who have both charmed their neighbors and made them shake their heads. In a neighborhood of neat, manicured yards, Mike and Claudia's sticks out like a sore thumb. An ugly awning frame, peeling paint, a disastrous front door, an old drafty window and a lack of color are just a few of the problems at the Ratterman's home. The young couple is eager to work, but they're in need of a helping hand. That's where Jason Cameron comes in...and he's bringing in a cherry picker to make the job go faster. By the end of the day, Claudia and Mike will make their neighbors proud.
