The fake reno choices are getting annoying. I just watched the episode with the two sisters and the little house. The bathroom obviously had a very recent reno, with a brand new sink and faucet. Looked like slate tiles on the floor. It seemed unbelievable anyone would touch that new bathroom when the kitchen looked like a war zone. The cabinets didn't even have doors on them. Tiles peeling up off the floor. It was so obvious that was the room originally planned for a reno.
One of these days I keep expecting real life to intrude into one of these shows. Sorry people but all you have is a nice bare room, but we totally rewired the electrical and redid the plumbing. You can always get the room sheetrocked and hang cabinets later. Enjoy your bare studded room and please smile for the HGTV cameras!
That will never happen of course. Somehow, magically no matter what they find wrong the room gets done with nice shiny stainless appliances and a huge stainless range hood. I guess they wring money out of the homeowners and then HGTV kicks in with donations and free work.
I admit that was some of the worst electrical I've ever seen. That would even give Frank on HOH a shock. Burned aluminum wires in the wall. A subpanel buried in the wall and behind the plaster. Unbelievable. I'm really surprised the city didn't make them totally rewire the entire house. If the kitchen was that badly framed and wired, the other rooms couldn't have been much better.
