Couples, with the assistance of a contractor, compete in a home renovation contest. Each couple is provided a tear-down house, which is moved to a common construction site. The couples live in their house for the duration of the renovation. Each week, they are given a specific budget, a specific time frame and other constraints in completing a renovation of a given room or rooms. Professionals in the design and construction business evaluate each of the room renovations, naming one couple the winner for that week, they who also receive a prize. At the end of the house renovation, one couple's house is named the overall best renovation, the winning couple who gets to keep their renovated house and a residential property on which to put it.
