Season 2, Episode 8

Turning dysfunctional 1930's home into classically vintage house with great rooms

When Bart and Kristin first saw their home, they immediately fell in love with its charm and history. But once they moved in they realized that the layout of the 1930's house was not functional at all! Now a nagging question haunts Kristin and Bart: can a renovation fix the problems they have with the home or would it be better to move to a new house that would fit their needs? Designer/Contractor Chip Wade shows them the reality of what moving would really mean to their wallet, and presents them with a plan to stay in their current home. But it's a rough road as Kristin is a lot more attached to the house than she realizes and she threatens to stop down the renovation.
