House/garden, Home improvement, Reality
Once the envy of downtown neighborhoods, the older homes featured in this series may look inviting from the outside, but those looks are certainly deceiving. These vintage homes are hiding dark secrets in the form of dry rot, weak foundations, cramped layouts or even termite infestations. Combining a passion for renovating and designing historic homes, Frank Fontana and his sledgehammer-swinging wife, Sherry, remodel and ultimately revive the structures into modern masterpieces. From opening the floor plan to incorporating modern technology, every aspect of each interior is updated, while respect is paid to the charm and class of the original home.
