'Should I Stay or Go': With water damage and delay in permits, can Heather and Brad revamp the house on time?
As Brad noticed there was a leakage due to water damage, he feared the renovation would have to be paused, but eventually he found that the damage wasn't as bad as he had expected
Heather and Brad Fox have never failed to disappoint their clients, but things got a bit hectic for them in the latest episode (November 21) as they took up a renovation project for Lorraine and Ben. The pair had decided to think about buying a new house when they found out they were expecting their second child.
Lorraine and Ben's current house has three bedrooms and two bathhouses. However, with another child on the way, the pair knew it was time to look for a bigger space. One thing they loved about their house was that it was located in a nice neighborhood. At the same time, all their friends were nearby. Unfortunately, the downfall of the house was that it wasn't big enough. Heather and Brad assured them that their house could be revamped into a bigger one by building another floor on top of it. With this, Heather and Brad planned on adding more rooms to the house. However, they wanted Lorraine and Ben to have some other options in hand.
They took the pair to see two possible houses that could become their future home. The first house offered the pair to have five bedrooms and enough space to move around freely. At the same time, it was in the same neighborhood as their previous house. The only drawback was it was $10,000 over the budget, that is $710,000. Meanwhile, the second option was a house that needed less time for renovation and was under the budget. Once Lorraine and Ben finished comparing the two places, they decided to let go of their house and opt for the house that they first saw. Without wasting time, Heather and Brad decided to start the renovation as they were fixed on time with Lorraine giving birth soon.
Unfortunately, not everything went according to plan. At first, Brad had to change the dates to start the renovation as they did not get the permit on time. Once they did, the pair started working on things faster. As they continued, Brad noticed that there was a leakage due to water damage. He feared the renovation would have to be paused. However, once he reached the house, he was happy to find out the damage wasn't as bad as he had expected. He and his team started the renovation yet again and managed to finish it on time. Meanwhile, Heather worked on the interior of the house.
She managed to pick things that would make Ben and Lorraine feel at home. At the same time, she added a touch of uniqueness by covering Ben's office room using a wallpaper inspired by a picture that he took. Once the pair entered the finished house, they were happy and shocked to see the transformation. Ben and Lorraine admitted the renovation was beyond their imagination. The pair admitted they were looking forward to moving into the new house with a new member of the family.
