Building a Better Basement

When Michael and LaToya accept Jason Cameron's challenge to smash every room in the house that they hate in just 30 minutes, they decide to head to their ugly basement. They smash the old kitchenette, the hideous, not-to-code bathroom and the walls, leaving a wide open space for Jason to fix. The family wants a kid-friendly space that will double as a guest room for visiting relatives. Jason's plan for remodeling the basement includes a book case on a hinge to hide the utility room, a new bathroom with custom tiles designed by Michael and LaToya's children, a hidden bed for sleepovers and visitors, a reading nook for the kids, plus a retractable screen for family movie night.
