The fourth season of the popular HGTV show 'Renovation Island' premiered with a fresh season of drama. Fans, on the other hand, seem to have grown weary of watching Sarah and Bryan Baeumler start another home improvement project.

After a year of anticipation and speculation, new episodes premiered on Sunday, July 24, at 9 pm ET. Sarah and Bryan Baeumler will embark on a new renovating journey this season. They have moved on to another project after safely reopening their island resort, Caerula Mar, when Covid travel restrictions were eased. In the season premiere, Bryan and Sarah make the difficult decision to sell their house in Canada and move the entire family to Wellington, Florida. The family is restoring their Florida home, which is in desperate need of some TLC.

When the hotel reopened, the world began to unlock again, and the family relocated across the Gulf Stream to their Florida home. They live in a house that was previously abandoned. It had zero landscaping and tiles falling off the roof so it requires some attention. Sarah, on the other hand, considers this a luxury because there is "no lizard poo, very few cockroaches, and there's more than one room for all six of us, and the dogs and the cats". Bryan says it's spacious but could use some work. They can also travel back and forth to the hotel in under an hour, which is critical at this point. The kids can participate in activities in Florida, so it's a good compromise; a decent stepping stone for the time-being.

The Florida house was constructed over 40 years ago. It is 4,500 square feet with a split floorplan. It features three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, and a centralized kitchen that leads to a patio space and a covered pool. The garage connects the house to a 2,500-square-foot airplane hangar that leads to the community's paved airstrip. The Baeumlers intend to keep the house's footprint, but entirely redesign the interior and exterior. To begin, they intend to remove the overgrown landscape and pool and redesign the entire backyard. The pool will have a shallow lounging area as well as a boardwalk leading to a firepit and hosting area.

The hangar will be transformed into a workshop with storage and a built-in home theatre. They intend to make a mudroom and laundry area out of the garage space. They plan to build an open concept living space on one side of the property. The kitchen will be gutted and replaced with new cabinetry, equipment, and a big island that will connect to the existing family area.

Charlotte and Josephine will share the two refurbished bedrooms and shared bathroom. Quintyn and Lincoln will have a similar configuration on the opposite side of the house, with two restored bedrooms and an adjoining bathroom. A guest bedroom that doubles as office space will also be added to the area. They intend to demolish the existing storage room and construct a new staircase that will lead up to a fresh new second-storey addition with a master bedroom, walk-in closet, and ensuite. The new house will be modern, functional, and the ideal starting point for all of the family's adventures.

The first day of demo-renovation at the Florida property was rather difficult. The landscrapers arrived to begin the work, and roofers came in to begin work on the roof because there are huge leaks in the hangar. They do not intend to replace the roof till they build the extension, so they asked the roofers to patch a couple of leaks for the time-being. Sarah discussed how they are making the kids' room a priority because they are delighted to be back in Florida and attend a formal school. On the first day, Chris, a local contractor, assisted the Baeumlers.

Fans seem to be less enthusiastic though as the Baeumlers return with a new season and a fresh restoration project. A fan tweeted: "I watched this couple when they had a Canadian reno show. Then they did Reno Island now they are reno-ing a new house. I think they are just addicted to renovating and @hgtv is making us watch it. When they are done this time can they let the kids rest. #RenovationIsland."

Another fan questioned their decision of leaving Canada for Florida: "Can't understand why anyone would leave Canada to live in Florida. Why?#RenovationIsland."

Some fans are also confused and question if the season will now be fully featuring Floida restoration: "So wait... #RenovationIsland is now.... Renovation Florida? Uhhh ok.. @hgtv."
