Amy Matthews is always helping everyone else renovate, now Paul Ryan is coming over to help her makeover her kitchen. She lives in a 1917 bungalow in the city-with lots of original charm. The charm, however, ends in the small 1970s kitchen. To make the most of the space, they've decided to open it to the dining room and infuse it with an Asian/Mission style.
Toni is a single mom who mixes comedy and her legal practice in a business called "Fun with Law" which provides workshops, training and entertainment for lawyers. She's a very funny and energetic mother of an 11-year-old boy named Branch. She works out of her home (a 1930s Cape Cod style house) and since she spends so much time there, she'd love to update the kitchen. The original maple cabinets are great, but the peeling painted sub-floor, needs help. Her kitchen nook has been taken over by a makeshift recycling center and most meals are eaten at a tiny butcher-block cart in the center of the room. Plus, the range and refrigerator wall is in desperate need of cabinetry. A photo in a magazine inspired Toni, now we want to help her bring that look to her kitchen.

When Leif got a new job in California, he decided to rent out his home while he tested the waters on the West Coast. After a year, he decided to return to home. Unfortunately, the place was an unrecognizable pigsty. His renters had trashed the place and he had to pick up the pieces. Elbow grease, drywall mud, paint and carpet fixed a lot, but the only thing that could really fix the already outdated kitchen was a sledgehammer. So Leif tore things apart and Paul Ryan is going to help him put it back together-all in a cool, contemporary style.
Concrete and broken beer bottles add up to an incredible countertop. Save thousands by finishing custom cabinets yourself. A piece of art glass transforms the center island.
Lorna has lived in her charming Tudor style home for about 3 years. She's done plenty of cosmetic updates, but the kitchen has been untouched-except for the carpet. She ripped up the kitchen carpet, anticipating a renovation, but that's as far as it's gotten. Lorna is a native of Scotland and has friends and relative who visit every year. Her brother and his family will be coming again soon and Lorna would really like to get the kitchen finished before the visit. Paul Ryan will give her the help she needs to get the job finished. We'll work with the existing Birch cabinets and fine-tune the rest.
