About the show

Stephen and Florence Gabriel’s family is growing. With a two and a four year old, they have outgrown their townhouse and have found their dream home, but it will require a complete renovation, including adding a second story to accommodate their needs. Florence has her eyes set on making this renovation the best it can be on a shoestring budget. On the other hand, Stephen wants everything without being all that money conscious. With Stephen and Florence's ideas differing, and two active kids ruling the roost, it may be more than they bargained for in DIY Network's Family Under Construction .
