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 .
Season 2, Episode 1

Fire and Flood

When they first got married, Phil and Linda Campanella bought a fixer-upper and spent four years adding on a second story, with Phil doing most of the work himself. They started a family, with two children born while under construction. Then, one night, a fire broke out. The house burned to the ground and they lost almost everything but their lives. Broke and virtually homeless, they moved in with Phil's mom. Now, we catch up with the Campanellas half-way through rebuilding their house from scratch, as they rush to give their kids their first real home.
