Johann moved in with his girlfriend Allison after losing his home in a fire. Now engaged to be married, the couple wants to find a new, bigger home in Seattle. They both want to be as close to the action of downtown Seattle as possible, but disagree on style. She wants a cozy Craftsman with charming details like crown molding, he's drawn to ultra-modern homes with clean, contemporary lines. Even with a big budget, they may not be able to find a place that meets both their design demands!
Michael and Kristin are newly engaged and living in Michael's childhood bedroom in his parents' house in Boonton, New Jersey, while they search for a place of their own. With 7 people living under one roof, plus 3 dogs and 2 cats, they're in a bit of a hurry. Michael wants to find a fixer-upper that they can put their own stamp on, but Kristin thinks they already have too much on their plate, and would prefer something move-in ready. She also definitely doesn't want a bi-level. But even with a budget of $500,000, getting on the same page will be a challenge.
