Everything We Had Leftover

To complete her 1920s bungalow rehab, Nicole must finish the remaining rooms. They're in pretty decent shape compared to what she's used to, but collectively the work is adding up. There are floors to patch in the living room, a broken porcelain sink in the bathroom, and a ton of staging furniture to add before the house goes on the market.

Bugs, Birds, & Bad Plumbing

Moving to the interior of the Dollar House, Nicole demo's her heart out and focuses on the disgusting kitchen space and adding a half bathroom to the first floor (evicting a few pigeons along the way). Once the new space is framed out, everything seems to be falling into place? until the water is turned on and Nicole finds out she has some leaky pipes.

From Charred to Charming

In the home stretch on her project in Detroit, Nicole must finish up the upper apartment, which is the area the fire damaged the most. She works hard to save the plaster ceiling medallion in the dining room and replaces charred window frames. The community comes together to build an urban garden.

Floors, Floors, Floors

Ever closer to finishing up the interior of the Dollar House, Nicole works in the bedrooms to put up all new walls and ceilings as well as remove the black and white linoleum flooring and patch up a burn mark in the hardwood. The staircase needs attention as well, so Nicole repairs some broken treads and comes up with a cool idea for how to turn an odd space into a storage closet.

Boarded Up Beauty

Nicole is on a mission to save vacant homes from the wrecking ball and her latest project is taking on a boarded up and previously condemned home from the late 1880s. The basement is full of structural issues, from rotten support beams and a crumbling concrete floor to the need for a new staircase that meets building code. Also on Nicole's list is turning the tiny first floor bathroom into a spacious powder room.

Grand Dining Room

What do you do when thieves have stolen priceless windows and hardwood flooring from your twentieth-century estate? If you're Nicole Curtis, you adapt and recreate! As Nicole tackles the spacious dining room of her tudor home, she must use custom leaded glass and modern oak flooring to mask the missing details. In order to restore her formal dining room to its former grandness, Nicole makes sure that the new elements blend seamlessly with the original style of the home. A combination of antique and reproduction furniture, glass, and flooring leave the space stately and polished.

Family Affair

It's a family affair as Nicole tackles an old shack that desperately needs some loving restoration. With the help of her brother, her nephew and her son, Ethan, carpets come up, there's new paint and a new fence. Since this is basically a crash pad, Nicole tries to keep her costs to an absolute minimum. But at the end of the day, Nicole transforms this unlivable space into a cozy new home.

Powder Room With a Flair

Nicole knows that a ground floor powder room will see a ton of guests, so what will she do with a broken window, paint-covered floor tile, and an out-of-commission toilet? Avoiding the impulse to demolish and replace everything, Nicole restores the tile and sink fixture with elbow grease and an all-nighter. She adds dramatic wall color for flair, as well as a toilet and original glass that matches the classic style of the home. Nicole proves that when it comes to restoration, it's better to leave it, clean it, and make it functional again.

Master Bath Overhaul

If Nicole is going to turn the entire third floor of her Grand Blvd. estate into a master suite, a custom new bathroom will have to be the first step. She starts with an overcrowded, neglected bath that doesn't fit her grandiose plans. By knocking down a wall and changing some angles, the floorplan is expanded to include a double vanity, claw-foot tub and walk-in shower. Despite a small plumbing mishap, Nicole's new bathroom is shaping up to be one of the most original and inviting spaces in her 1913 auction home.

Solarium Refresh

Once a boarded-up eyesore, Nicole's first-floor solarium has the potential to be the best room in the house. With the help of her dad and a yard-sale crockpot, Nicole starts with an often overlooked detail, window hardware. Boiling the hardware removes years of paint and leaves them shiny and new, a great first step in making the solarium a bright and welcoming entryway to her Grand Blvd. estate. Some antique mirrors and light fixtures go a long way to make the room feel cozy and fresh, while maintaining the antique feel of the 100-year old home. Nicole takes a much needed break with her son to celebrate a Thanksgiving parade in her home city, Detroit.

Rebuild Below

A dark basement that could have easily been overlooked as an unsalvageable and unusable space is transformed into a gorgeous family room. Exposed brick and an amazing fireplace are too beautiful for Nicole to ignore, so she sets out to elevate the room from subterranean cellar to functional family room. Nicole sources local salvaged pine for the flooring and restores it to its former shine, while using cost-effective new trim, stained to match. Finally, a vintage art Deco bar is hauled down below to serve as a focal point for the new space. Using as much as she can from the original home and time period, Nicole rebuilds a basement beyond even its original potential.

Nicole's newest home is 100 years old, and unsurprisingly the living room needs work from top to bottom. Despite major setbacks, Nicole is up for the challenge. The outdated textured ceiling is ripped down for electrical and water line repair while the ugly green walls are given a fresh update. Nicole sees the beauty in the original hardwood flooring by polishing and staining the existing oak. By utilizing as many of the original details as possible, the living room begins to finally take shape as a classic example of restoration done right.

Kitchen Overhaul

When it comes to restoring kitchens, Nicole Curtis' rule is that it should look old and work like new! In her Grand Blvd. home, she has to work with a large kitchen that offers little wall space. After a couple of re-designs and some custom woodwork, she finally settles on a layout that allows for new, modern appliances while maintaining important design elements, such as the original upper cabinets. Despite some setbacks, including a literal hole in the wall, Nicole combines the old with the new to create a gorgeous kitchen that maintains its original charm while offering the comforts of the 21st century.

Leaky Bedroom Disaster

Nicole is ready to tackle the 2nd floor of the house, but one rainy day proves just how damaged the 100 year old roof is. Severe leaks are threatening to destroy multiple rooms, so Nicole gets on top of the house to inspect the damage. Most people would tear up the original clay tile and do a complete replacement, but not Nicole Curtis! Despite the extra cost, new tile is blended with old to keep the original, unique look of the house. Once the roof is water tight, two upstairs bedrooms are ready to be restored. A fresh window seat, antique glass knobs, and a stairwell re-do get Nicole closer to finishing her grand 2nd floor.

Jack and Jill Suite

What's Nicole Curtis' favorite kind of bathroom to renovate? One with almost entirely original fixtures! With the help of a 1920's mint condition porcelain sink, Nicole is able to transform the Jack and Jill bathroom in her Grand Blvd. home without sacrificing its antique integrity. Two bedrooms, one girl's, one boy's, lay on either side. After stripping the wallpaper, restoring the original oak floors and adding some new paint, the rooms are almost move-in ready. All that's left is for her son to stage the room with personal touches, and clean the unique Inglenook that provides a centerpiece for the boy's room.
