The Etjeke Job

Erica and Jean love their beach bungalow but hate their outdated kitchen.

About the show

Home renovation looks so easy on TV. We see a project move quickly and smoothly from start to finish – and the results are always beautiful. But somewhere between "before" and "after" there are always at least a few speed bumps – and one great story. Budgets skyrocket, tempers flare, relationships suffer. This is real life, and DIY Network's Renovation Realities proves that even in home improvement, truth is often stranger than fiction.
