Brown Great Room

Jeremy and Dana tried to renovate their kitchen, but quickly found themselves in over their heads - and Jeremy may have made things worse with some creative wiring solutions. They've already bought their cabinets, but haven't even begun to figure out where to put them, so their brand new cabinets have been sitting in the garage for months. The kitchen connects to the living room and dining area, but an awkward and boxy layout keeps the space from living up to its full potential. Now, Kayleen McCabe and her team are ready to tear down the walls and take this space out of the box. Along the way, they'll set the electrical straight, configure the cabinets, and uncover the great in this great room.
