Couple Tackles Huge Basement for a Chance to Win Cash

Host Matt Blashaw challenges a couple to renovate a massive, old basement like the pros for a chance to win cash. When the project is finished, Matt, along with another professional contractor, will judge the quality of the finished work and price it out. If Rick and Marie Janson are able to do it for less, they win the difference in cash. The basement renovation consists of moving a furnace, overhauling a bathroom, and creating an office, guest room, living space and closet. It's a huge job for the pros, so can these novice homeowners handle the scope of work? Rick is optimistic, but problems quickly arise and the budget is in danger of getting out of control. And for these newlyweds, finishing the job could really take a toll on their relationship.
