Plot Synopsis

HOUSE HUNTERS RENOVATION follows potential home buyers as they tour three for-sale homes, purchase the perfect fixer-upper, and then renovate and reveal their new property. Each 60-minute episode features a different homeowner, with the first half of the show following a typical HOUSE HUNTERS format -- a real-estate agent showing a client three different properties -- and the second half of the show featuring the design and renovation of one room in the new home. The production company provides each homeowner with a designer, a team of workers and a budget to execute the room renovation. In the first three episodes: Vicky and Phil fail to find high-end custom details in a new home, so they use her family's architectural woodworking firm to give their new living room a traditional but comfortable Cape Cod style look; first-time homeowners Brendan and Hiwa want to find a new home in time for their baby's arrival, but they must find a place near the beach that fits their budget and then renovate a room that satisfies their conflicting design styles; and artist Lynell and his TV producer wife Lisa are looking for Craftsman flair and Spanish details in a house in their price range, and after they buy, they renovate the kitchen -- which may get derailed when Lise's job keeps her from being around.
