New hardwood floors replace linoleum and Nicole designs custom, vintage-inspired cabinets to provide a nostalgic feel to the treasured room. Right down to a salvaged green phone, the kitchen begins to be reborn as it was in Nicole's childhood memories. For Nicole's next project, it's gonna be sink or swim! The indoor pool that Nicole's grandfather built by hand is getting a much-needed refresher.
Not only does she have to figure out how to add plumbing to a former bedroom, but she also has to deal with some unexpected problems in the dark, dingy basement. This cozy sitting area shows off the redone stairs and gives the family a nice place to sit and relax or maybe even read a little. Curtis was eventually able to purchase the home and rehab it herself! It's always my tone. There's a reason Curtis is always trying to salvage as much as she can from the original house.
First up, the safety and mechanical systems of the pool need to be overhauled to meet modern standards. The beautiful cedar ceiling and aquamarine walls are original so there is no way Nicole will change those, they just need a good wash and some new paint. In the biggest design challenge of the entire project, Nicole boldly replaces the original doors, which had been ruined with age, with giant glass garage doors to let in light and views of the surrounding countryside.
Nicole Curtis tackles the family room of her family's home! Off the pool lies a dated family room, covered in wood paneling and boasting a large mechanical room for the pool equipment. Nicole sees opportunity for a beautiful bathroom, and an updated, retro family room that pays homage to her Grandfather's original plans.
It wouldn't be Nicole if some gorgeous wood, and not-so-gorgeous hunting themed paneling, is lovingly re purposed to update the room into a modern yet rustic haven. Nicole Curtis saves the original Mid-Century bathroom in her Grandparents' house in her classic style; by preserving critical elements while updating tired design choices. The original blue tile, hand laid by her Grandfather, is saved, but working with the original tile color poses some challenges for Nicole.
Rather than hiding from the blue tile Nicole embraces it wholeheartedly and bases her entire design around it. Finally Nicole removes a tacky 80s seashell vanity and replaces it with a much needed double-sink. Nicole's grandparents house sits on a sprawling 5 acre parcel.
This apartment has a lot of sentimental value to the family, over the years pretty much everyone has lived there at one point or another, including Nicole! Taking a break from the main house renovation, Nicole tackles the apartment with a series of fun, chic changes that don't cost a fortune: In this episode, Nicole Curtis tackles the heart of her Grandparents' home, the living room and dining room.
The most 'photographed' rooms in the house, these projects present Nicole with a very clear visual template to work from. Fixing the original fireplace and it's plaster moulding presents a relatively easy, if messy, challenge. Sourcing and replacing the iconic chandelier in the dining room with an exact match may prove an impossible task. Nicole Curtis tackles one of her biggest challenges yet, all of the original bedrooms in the home built by her grandparents.
Nicole is faced with a dilemma, the previous owners trashed the original windows and design, now it's up to her to fix their mistakes. Will Nicole be able to infuse life, design and personality into these ruined spaces? Nicole Curtis tackles one of the hardest spaces in her grandparents' mid-century home, the basement. With space at a premium, Nicole must battle water, structural problems, dilapidated windows and poorly placed duct work to turn a neglected area into a much needed gathering space.
Nicole battles against several sticky issues in this episode. After an improperly winterized basement bathroom springs some serious leaks, she remains determined to rebuild the bathroom better than ever. Improving the layout, adding mid-century tile and a custom vanity, Nicole creates one of her most appealing bathrooms yet.
But she doesn't end there, adding an egress window to the basement, Nicole builds out a charming and inviting basement guest suite.
As the renovation of Nicole's grandparents midcentury home winds down there is just one major obstacle left: Nicole's grandparents literally built the home block by block so nothing short of perfection will do for the curb appeal of this property. Nicole adds gutters, a new driveway and entirely does the house in stucco, just like the original.
To complete this magnificent transformation Nicole restores the original brick front porch and tops everything off with some tasteful, but stunning landscaping.
Nicole is back on Campbell Street helping her year-old veteran neighbor, Art, repair his home. The house is suffering from severe water damage so the team seals the leaky roof and patches and repaints the dining room, living room, and bedroom. The old worn down carpets and area rugs have become an extreme trip hazard for the elderly vet, so Nicole installs new low pile carpet throughout the home.
With the help of her team and Art's two daughters, Nicole turns an otherwise unsafe home into a relaxing retreat in record time. Nicole takes on her most personal project yet, her grandfather's red barn. The barn has fallen into disrepair and requires a great deal of structural work to make it safe and strong. Starting with an Amish metal roof, skylights, new gutters and a coat of paint, Nicole brings the exterior of the barn back to life. Inside Nicole removes part of the loft to reveal a beautiful cathedral ceiling and rebuilds a staircase out of salvaged wood.
With the Red Barn finally reborn Nicole is ready to reveal the full renovation of her 50s midcentury ranch to the home's original builders, her Grandma and Grandpa.
Nicole is on a mission to save vacant homes from the wrecking ball and her latest project is taking on a boarded up and previously condemned home from the late s. The basement is full of structural issues, from rotten support beams and a crumbling concrete floor to the need for a new staircase that meets building code.
