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.

The Harris Job

Baha Khalil has enlisted his best friend Mustafa to help him renovate his disgusting kitchen. Basically, everything needs to be torn out and replaced. The cabinets are old, cheap and ugly, so they're planning on ripping them out and replacing them with something more modern. Next, the puke-green countertops will be removed so Baha and Mustafa can install new granite. The multiple layers of dingy laminate flooring, which Mustafa refers to as linoleum inception, are going to be demolished so they can install new ceramic tiles. The next project will be the removal of the drop ceiling, which is already half missing, and the fluorescent lights home to hundreds of dead bugs. This kitchen renovation is the last thing Baha needs to complete before moving into his new home, and he's positive that with his best friend's help, he can finally have the kitchen of his dreams.
