Tara and Charles live in a townhouse with their two young boys. The neighborhood is great, but there's just not enough space. In fact, when the boys want to play outside, Tara and Charles turn their garage and driveway into a makeshift play area. The couple works with their realtor to find just the right house in just the right neighborhood. But after looking at one fixer after another, that turns out to be an impossible dream. So they decide to pick a house they can turn into the home they've been looking for. After the purchase, they launch into a massive renovation, taking out a big section of the back half of the house and redoing the kitchen, living room and entry.
