And 1st episode I saw she and her dad were taken apart some big windows and she was just saying she wants to save the windows and as soon as she was by the window you can clearly see someone push the window down. It might not be your typical reality home show, but it still counts. Even the most expensive, extravagant homes can fall into disrepair without proper care. Horribly staged and cluttered).

External Reviews Tamara Day gets creative renovating a 1950 ranch-style home updating the exterior with faux stone, using a second-story addition to create three new bedrooms and gutting the master suite.

There's a reason why the show aired for nine seasons and won two Primetime Emmy Awards, right? Im sure the guys doing the actual work are super pumped when she shows up.... dont get me started on what others have already reviewed regarding how she literally destroys the history of what was a fantastic home that was lovingly built by an individual that i promise is now rolling in his grave. Taking away the beauty of a house and making it open floor plan is awful.
