Smashing the Way to a Bigger Dining Room, Kitchen and Laundry Room

Jason Cameron has a Sledgehammer deal for this family of six. Smash all the rooms they want in just 30 minutes and Jason will turn the rooms into something beautiful, but run out of time, and they'll be left with a hot mess. The Teepen family's kitchen and dining room are busting at the seams with four strapping boys and a coupon clipping/bulk-buying mom, they need all the space they can get. They also need to replace their rickety porch. They are up against the clock to get it done. With the Sledgehammer, the homeowners smash the kitchen, dining room and laundry room to open up space for their big family. Jason rebuilds the kitchen, creates a new laundry and workspace and brings in huge cabinets for this family that buys in bulk. Plus, Jason has tips on creating a big new leaf to create more space around the family's old kitchen table.
