Fiances, Greg and Janelle, are looking for a home in North Carolina. She has her heart set on living in a southern-style home that she hopes Greg, who works in construction, can fix up. But he doesn't have the time to put sweat equity into a home and work a full time job. She wants lots of natural light for her photography studio, but Greg plans on buying shutters, and the darkest blackout curtains he can find. They are opposite in so many things... will they find a house that suits them both?
Young Columbus, Ohio, couple Shawn and Julie have saved up a down payment, and are ready to trade their rent for a mortgage. But they're on opposite sides of the design spectrum: Shawn would like a contemporary ranch home, and Julie would like a vintage bungalow. Shawn needs to have a 2-car garage so he has plenty of room to tinker with the couple's motorcycles. Julie wants to see traditional charm all around her: arched doorways, stained glass windows, and as much woodwork and trim possible. Will these first timers be able to find a house with all of these features?
