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.

Quicke Breezeway and Yards

Scott and Krista bought a bank-owned home, and it needed a lot of work. They renovated the entire interior from top to bottom, but ran out of steam before finishing the breezeway and side yards. The breezeway connects the house to the garage, and was once a heated, useable space. But over the years, it's seen water damage, and also lost its heat source. But now, Kayleen McCabe and her team of renovation rescuers are ready to change the forecast for this blustery breezeway. Along the way, they'll unify the breezeway and yards with stamped concrete flooring, open up the breezeway with new accordion-style doors, install a fireplace and add an outdoor kitchen in a side yard. And when they're finished, their new breezeway will blow Scott and Krista away.
