Plot Synopsis

DOWNTOWN SHABBY is a one-hour reality series that follows renovation and design experts Frank and Sherry Fontana, as they renovate, remodel and revive unsightly vintage homes, transforming them into modern masterpieces. These homes may look like the perfect dream houses on the outside, but are practically unlivable on the inside, where they hide dark secrets from dry rot, to weak foundations, to cramped design or even termite infestations. While keeping an eye towards the charm and class of the original home, Frank and Sherry will modernize every aspect of the interior, from opening the floor plan to installing the latest cutting edge technology. The series also chronicles the lives of the homeowners as they remain in the homes throughout the renovation process. In the series opener, "Victorian Gets Luxury Makeover," Ashley and Tim rushed to buy a new home, and are now faced with the realities of remodeling a 130-year-old house before their baby is born. They hope to update their living space, build a luxurious master suite, and create a beautiful nursery for their newest addition. With the clock ticking, they need Frank and Sherry's help to make their dreams of a luxurious home come true before the new baby arrives.
On Saturday, December 3, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT, FYI premiered the season finale of DOWNTOWN SHABBY. In the season ender, "Majestic Folk Victorian gets American Style Mega-Kitchen," expats Jeff and Angela return to America, dreaming of a classic home, with an enormous American style kitchen, that also features their prized possessions acquired during their travels through Asia. Frank and Sherry's challenge is to come up with designs that cater to all of those disparate concepts. But when they start opening up walls, Frank and Sherry make a series of dangerous discoveries that shake this family to their very core.
