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 Pleuss Job

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.

The Velasquez Job

Jaci and Nic Velasquez have a hazardous front porch that needs to be renovated. The existing porch has been repainted and shoddily repaired numerous times, and this family thinks it's time for an upgrade. First, Jaci and Nic are planning to completely demo the existing porch. A cement staircase was hidden beneath the porch until Nic recently removed overgrown bushes that were harboring brown recluses. This staircase will have to be demoed as well, something Nic believes will be easier said than done. To finish out the demo portion of their renovation, the cement walkway leading up to the stairs will be torn up as well. The Velasquez family is planning on building a contemporary front porch after all this demo is completed. Consisting of an extended roofline, multiple steel support cables that create a 'floating' appearance, this renovation will completely change the look of their home. A new stone walkway will be laid down to add a warm and inviting finishing touch to this ambitious project. Jaci and Nic are excited to have a front porch that their children aren't afraid of, that won't injure friends and family who walk on it, and they can't wait to get started.
