Renovation Realities: Ben and Ginger

Renovation Realities: Ben and Ginger will follow Good Morning America weather anchor Ginger Zee and her husband, NBC reporter Ben Aaron, as they renovate their house outside of New York City into the home of their dreams.

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.

While all the walls are bare, they've also decided that increasing their closet space will be a huge priority.

The Grandy Job

Andrea and Keith Hansen's kitchen is falling apart. Drawers fall out and crush their feet, cabinet doors frequently break and the water-line for the refrigerator doesn't even work. They're planning a complete renovation to transform this lackluster space into a kitchen they can be proud of. The old cabinets and wasted soffit space above will be torn out to make way for new ones, the dingy countertops will be demoed and the outdated tile flooring will be removed and replaced with sturdier tiles more up to the rigors of Andrea's cooking. Along the way, they'll have to figure out what's wrong with the water line and fix it in hopes that the luxury of ice can once again be theirs. Having completed a few minor renovations in the past, the Hansens are both wildly intimidated by this huge renovation. Keith's perfectionist and stubborn character mixed with Andrea's detail oriented attitude will likely cause some problems, but after eight years of marriage, they're positive they can handle it together.

The Kushner Job

Whitney and Brad Hancock are renovating their unused upstairs area into an extra bedroom or nursery. The short treads on the staircase that leads up to the area make it impossible to walk up and down, so the first step will be to demolish the existing staircase and install a new one. Once that is complete, they feel as if the entire space is too closed off, so they plan on opening up the entire area by demolishing all interior walls to start with a blank slate. The ceiling is drooping and needs to come down, a broken window and its frame will be replaced and the broken flooring will be torn out as well. When all demo is complete, Whitney and Brad will then install insulation, drywall and new bamboo floors throughout. Even after all of this work, they are planning on hiding an exposed HVAC duct somehow. With limited DIY experience, The Hancocks are overwhelmed by the sheer size of this renovation, but know that they need the extra space.

The Hansen Job

Jennifer and David Bullinger are renovating an outdated upstairs bedroom to add some much needed space to their cramped house. The existing room is unusable except for storage, and with four kids, the Bullinger's house is practically bursting at the seams. The walls need to be gutted to install insulation and electricity, three broken windows need to be removed and replaced and a door that leads to nowhere, something of a safety hazard for their four children under six, will either need to be closed off entirely or replaced with a new door and deck addition. The sagging ceilings and beaten up floors will be demolished as well, so this truly is a complete renovation. While both are familiar with minor renovations, this project is larger than anything either has taken on before. However, they both agree that the added space is paramount, so they're willing to do anything to get it done.

The Khalil Job

Chad and Katie Gunther hate their cramped and outdated kitchen, so they're going to renovate the space and incorporate their dining room area to open it up. Living and working in Las Vegas means that this dynamic couple loves to entertain, so now they want to create an inviting space for their family and friends. Everything will be demoed: cabinets that don't hold any of their cooking supplies, unsanitary and impossible-to-clean tiled countertops and ugly tile flooring and carpet. Their plan is to demo an existing peninsula and move it out into the dining room to open the kitchen floor plan. The new, larger cabinets will extend into the expanded space as well. On the opposite wall, built-ins will be installed to create a bar area. And the dingy carpets will finally be replaced with something more durable and chic. Chad isn't a stranger to small renovations, but Katie, who makes a living as a Britney Spears impersonator in Vegas, has no idea what she's doing. Combine that with the fact that Chad describes his plumbing and electrical skills as "sub-par at best," and this renovation will surely challenge the couple's problem-solving skills.
