Mathison is no stranger to home renovation. In fact, he converted his run-down garage into an awesome family room in only five days! Who better to host a show that brings together four teams of amateur home renovators as they attempt to save dilapidated houses that are marked to be torn down and revive them room by room into their dream homes. The teams must renovate the run down structures while living inside their slowly improving homes where they must cope with small budgets, tight deadlines and even tighter living spaces! In each episode, two expert judges along with celebrity guest judges vote for their favorite room renovations based on design and workmanship. At the end of the series, the winners will be awarded with the house they have painstakingly renovated and a plot of land to live on.
