9 :02x06 - Down to the Studs

Aug/16/2011
Eight years ago, Dakota and Luke Chalich bought a 1976 split-level on a huge wooded lot. They loved the location, but the house was a real fixer-upper. Fortunately, Dakota and Luke are pretty handy, so they started work on the place right away. Now they've renovated everything but one room--the kitchen. It needs a total overhaul, so they've brought in contractor James Young to transform the dated room into a modern, open space.

10 :02x07 - Kitchen Dorks

Aug/23/2011
Sean Silver and Shannon Flinn worked hard to fix up their first home, one they chose for its beautiful original hardwood floors. But their black hole of a kitchen was too daunting a task. These self-described "food dorks" desperately want a kitchen to match their appetite for cooking and entertaining. So, James is on the case and tearing everything out, even opening up the walls to make room for lots of added storage and counter space. Restored hardwood floors, a painted glass backsplash and soft-yet-durable cork tiling in the pantry crank up the style, and high-end appliances, like an induction cooktop, bring function into what was a featureless kitchen. And the price tag? At $32,000, it's just a couple thousand over Sean and Shannon's budget, but for these foodies, it's well worth the investment.

11 :02x08 - Budget-Friendly Redo

Aug/30/2011
Police officer Dan and his girlfriend Janelle are more than ready to update their kitchen, but they want to keep the budget under $12,000. James is ready for the challenge, and he suggests the couple supplement their existing cabinetry with a few new stock cabinets for extra storage. And for a quick style fix, James wants to update the cabinet doors with resin panels and a new coat of stain. Plus, they'll reuse some of their hardwood floor and pair it with an updated tile that's groutless and easy to install. But this project has a few splurges as well, including a circular sink, a custom glass backsplash and a trendy wall-hung fireplace that will add some heat to this cool design. James also shows Dan how to save a bunch of money by using laminate countertops. And to top things off, James has an inexpensive lighting solution that this couple will love.

James will update the space with modern conveniences and will bring in high-end finishes that reflect the arts-and-crafts design of the rest of the home.

Sep/27/2011
When it came time to buy their first home two years ago, a great location was at the top of Kyle and Kari's wish list.

The couple started by renovating the attic, and their cramped and outdated kitchen is next on the hit list. James helps these homeowners maximize the small space by tearing down a wall and creating a better layout. The new space will feature custom cabinets, copper countertops and a multicolored cork floor.

16 :02x13 - Not Enough Kitchen

Oct/04/2011
When Tricia and Rashad found an affordable 1940s bungalow in a neighborhood they loved, they pounced on it. At the time, they liked that although the kitchen was small, it seemed to have all the proper amenities - including a dishwasher. The couple soon discovered, however, that the dishwasher didn't work at all and the range was barely functional, not to mention the kitchen was filled with materials that were outdated and falling apart. James is coming to the rescue and suggests knocking down a wall to combine the kitchen with the dining area. He'll also salvage some of the old cabinetry, bring in additional cabinet boxes and blend them together with new Shaker-style doors. The whole kitchen will receive a contemporary update with new appliances, an interlocking rock backsplash and quartz countertops.
