Jason and Bernice buy a 1910 house at auction for $16,000 and begin work on their biggest restoration yet. Starting with the kitchen and dining room, they tear down walls to create a modern, open space and install more windows to help brighten up the space. To honor the home's original design, they add back in reclaimed wainscoting and bench seating as well as repurpose an old dresser as a new kitchen island.
Jason and Bernice continue work on their 1910 Buffalo, NY home by finishing off the first floor. As they renovate the living room, they run into massive issues as they open up the damaged ceiling, and they face design challenges as they add a hidden powder room in the entryway to the house. They add unique historic details to each space, including leaded glass windows, columns, wainscoting and a gingerbread transom between the living and dining room.
Jason and Bernice are midway through renovations on their 1910 house in Buffalo, NY, and they have big plans to move the master bedroom from the front of the house to its original home in back. They remove the wall between two small bedrooms to create an amazing master suite space, but not without challenges. After discovering rot in an exterior wall, they have to completely rebuild and add a new header. In the end the space is bold and bright with tons of color and historic details, giving a nod to both the era of the home and Buffalo's eclectic design style.
Jason and Bernice are ready to complete work on the second floor of their 1910 house in Buffalo, NY. They team up with their siblings to take the large bedroom in the front of the house and convert it into two unique bedrooms. They also work to restore the home's original bathroom, and have trouble along the way as they find standing water in the bathroom floor, and face cracking walls as they add insulation to the historic home.
Jason and Bernice are moving up and out on their 1910 home in Buffalo, NY, as they transform the unfinished attic into an eclectic living space, and make a bold, colorful update to the exterior. They draw inspiration from the artistic community in Buffalo to create unique installations in the attic, including a storage wall made from old crates. They also mimic the colorful homes of Buffalo as they paint the exterior a contrasting teal and orange, and add a lush garden out front.
Jason and Bernice are nearly done with work on the 1910 Buffalo, NY, house, and are almost ready to put it on the market! They finish off the renovation by revamping the tired backyard, adding a pergola-covered dining area, a back deck and creating a unique fence out of salvaged doors. Once work is complete, they have an open house and reveal the finished home to prospective buyers.
