'Renovation, Inc.': Sarah Baeumler leaves her first retail client speechless with her modern interiors
Sarah successfully finished designing the house for her first retail client and even her husband Bryan was all praise for her exceptional work
The latest episode of 'Renovation, Inc.' featured Sarah Baeumler successfully finishing the interior designing work for her first-ever retail client. Sarah was asked by her husband, Bryan Baeumler, to join their renovation business and handle the designing aspect of the work. Sarah was initially hesitant to come onboard but eventually agreed and partnered up with Bryan.
Soon, the couple landed their first client — James and Lisa Lajoie. The couple bought a beautiful fixer-upper home with the hopes of renovating it before they settled down to start a family. Sarah and Bryan had to go about the renovation work keeping in mind the growing family of their clients. Since it was their first home, James and Lisa ended up churning out a huge wishlist to convert the home into their dream abode.
But when Sarah and Bryan sat down and crunched the numbers, they realized that their dream home's renovation work would cost about $150,000, but the couple had a budget of $90,000. So they decided to cut down on some of their initial requests and focus on making some major changes to the home. It began with converting their 'powder room' into a lovely bonus room, expanding the bathroom on the first door, adding an additional one for their guests and children and finally installing a lovely fireplace for the family to relax.
Even these works cost the couple quite a bit and they had to keep stretching their budget, which eventually ended up coming close to $150,000. Bryan and Sarah worked hard on the renovation work to finish it on time. Finally, when the couple saw their newly renovated home, they were left speechless. While expressing how much they loved the work done to the home, they revealed that they were expecting their first child. Upon hearing it, Bryan and Sarah were elated and congratulated the couple. Bryan then asked the couple to give Sarah their appraisal and feedback. The couple praised Sarah and her work ethics. Towards the end of the episode, we see Bryan complimenting his wife for her exceptional work despite having no experience in working with retail clients.
