Nicole is back in action and juggling two Detroit houses at the same time! While the 'Ferndale' house is in great shape, the '14 Mile' property is gutted of its original fixtures and charm. Since both homes were built in 1928 and have similar floor plans, Ferndale serves as the inspiration for renovations at 14 Mile. Nicole starts with the living room, building out the staircase, adding a closet and framing the windows in oak.
Nicole tackles a 1920s house that used to be a rental and has incredibly small upstairs bedrooms. She plans to change the layout and add character, including removing a wall to make room for a new hallway and custom linen closet.
Nicole finds that turning a tiny, dated bathroom into an en suite master bath isn't easy as she struggles to fit a stately soaking tub, shower and custom vanity into the space.
Nicole Curtis has almost completed the upstairs in her 14 Mile house. Now it's to time to unveil a bigger and brighter master bedroom. To get the look she wants, she has to knock down some walls, open up the ceiling and bring in a very special feature.
Nicole Curtis continues work on the den and powder room of her 1920s 14 Mile house. Can she make these midcentury additions match the turn-of-the-century feel of the rest of the home?
Nicole Curtis ventures down into the creepy basement of her 14 Mile project. She's then faced with a dilemma when an unforeseen turn of events threatens the entire project.
Nicole begins construction in the kitchen of the 14 Mile house. Working with a limited space and no original details, she is forced to attempt something she has never done before -- an open kitchen.
As the renovation of the 14 Mile house winds down, there's one more thing that needs to be done -- finish the exterior. After repairing damage from a car accident, Nicole has a chance to bring back original details the house lost decades ago.
Nicole Curtis turns her attention to a rundown cottage in Lake Orion, Michigan. Starting in the living room, she rips out an old staircase leading into the kitchen before making her way outside to create a new boardwalk entry, picket fence and back deck.
Nicole Curtis works to restore a 1920s bungalow and must tackle a ton of brickwork. Then, she transforms the unfinished attic into a one-of-a-kind master suite and restores the kitchen cabinets to create one of the home's most dazzling features.
Nicole Curtis heads to St. Paul for the first time to work on a home in an up-and-coming neighborhood. The living and dining rooms' woodwork and original pocket doors require hours of sanding and stripping, and Nicole works to retain the home's classic character while giving it fresh touches.
Nicole Curtis takes on her most personal project ever -- a 1950s ranch-style home her grandparents built by hand. She restores the kitchen to its original layout and transforms the dingy work basement into a party-ready rec room.
Nicole Curtis returns to her hometown of Detroit to save a 1920s home that suffered severe damage from a fire next door. She breathes new life into the old duplex by preserving the plaster work, modernizing the kitchens and transforming an unusable room into a unique home office.
While waiting for the Minnehaha house to sell, interior designer Nicole Curtis is hired by one of her clients to rehab his cluttered, compact kitchen into a useable restored space for him and his family. Given a tight deadline, Nicole soon finds herself overwhelmed but finds relief when her mother comes for a visit in this episode of Rehab Addict.
Rehab Addict's Nicole Curtis takes on another design project while waiting for the Minnehaha house to sell. This time it's her client Ellen's colorful sea-themed bathroom that needs fixing. To match the 1920s style of the rest of the house, she has to bring it down to the studs ? everything but the door must go.
Continuing her restoration of Adam and Rachael's home, interior designer Nicole Curtis moves her attention to the living room, where she must restore the beat-up hardwood floors and replace a set of built- ins that were torn out over the years. Nicole also takes a look at an unusual way to expand one of the small bedrooms and ends this episode of Rehab Addict by heading downtown to a tax auction, hoping to bid on her next big project.
Turning her attention to Adam and Rachael's bathroom, Nicole deals with the many problems that creep up while working with tile in an old house. When she hits a snag, Nicole must think on her feet and figure out a way to make her fixtures fit in the small space. As her deadline approaches and working hours get longer, Nicole begins feeling guilty for not spending more time with her son Ethan.
With the Minnehaha house still sitting on the market, Rehab Addict's Nicole Curtis decides to put her own house up for sale hoping that it will sell faster. However, before she can do this, she must first give her garage a much needed makeover and remove asbestos from her basement. Not wanting to spend too much, this interior designer must find low cost solutions to get the job done.
Preparing to put her house up for sale, Rehab Addict's Nicole Curtis turns her attention to the cluttered basement and devises a plan to update the space while also keeping the unfinished, industrial feel it would have had when the house was built. Never one to let anything go to waste, this interior designer finds a way to repurpose her old garage carriage doors and turn an old soapstone sink into the centerpiece of the room.
In this episode of Rehab Addict, interior designer Nicole Curtis finds a hundred-year-old Victorian home she wants to renovate. However when it sells to other buyers, she convinces them to let her be involved as they work to get it back on the market. Fighting the onset of cold weather, they try to improve the curb appeal by removing an old chain link fence, rebuilding a missing porch, and giving the faded siding a much needed paint job. They don't always see eye to eye, but Nicole is determined to make it work.
Nicole searches for a set of salvaged cabinets to use in the Harriet Project's upper unit kitchen. With her own house still up for sale, Nicole visits the historical society to see if she can discover any new information about the property. Meanwhile, the homeowners of the Harriet Project make a decision that Nicole doesn't agree with.
Nicole repairs the hardwood floors in both living rooms of the Harriet Project and searches for replica tile to begin restoring a fireplace in the downstairs unit. With the crumbling plaster walls replaced, the front entryway is ready for a grand transformation. Nicole's son Ethan gets a babysitting job.
With only a few weeks left to finish the Harriet Project, Nicole and the homeowners divide and conquer to complete the lower unit's living room and kitchen. Nicole visits a local high school shop class to work on a raditator cover for the living room. As the project nears completion, Nicole receives news on the Minnehaha house.
With the Dollar House project an official 'Go', Nicole's first project is a major one: lifting the house to fix the crumbling foundation. Even though this means the brick chimney has to go, Nicole finds a way to reuse the old brick and begins to add a little character back into the living room.
Moving to the interior of the Dollar House, Nicole demo's her heart out and focuses on the disgusting kitchen space and adding a half bathroom to the first floor (evicting a few pigeons along the way). Once the new space is framed out, everything seems to be falling into place? until the water is turned on and Nicole finds out she has some leaky pipes.
Restoring the first floor of the Dollar House continues as host and interior designer Nicole Curtis uncovers hardwood floors throughout the living and dining room areas. The dining room hutch is still intact, but there's a whole new fireplace mantle to build. Nicole also takes on a DIY project to prove that a pile of scrap wood can become a thing of beauty.
