17 – 23 Dec: Episode 13: Basement Blunder
Kevin considers himself somewhat handy, but you wouldn’t know by the look of the cottage basement. Concrete floors, exposed insulation and an over-abundance of tuck tape tell a different story. Though he gets points for creativity—making a guest room out of bed sheets—his wife Chantal is tired of the unfinished mess. It’s the first space visitors see when they come from the lake, and Chantal wants something warm and welcoming rather than dungeon dreary. This is a massive space that’s going to take a monumental effort to complete, but Dave and the team are up for the challenge.
