About the show

A recently divorced mother of two, New Jersey teacher Shalina Joy is taking on her biggest summer vacation project ever, completely transforming a run-down 1900's mansion into a sunny, functional home for her family. From crumbling walls to holes in floors and surprises at every turn, she's peeling back decades of bad renovations and restoring the 6,000 square foot Italian Renaissance house to its original glory, and giving herself a fresh start.
