The show comprises 12 episodes during which Day renovates six homes in the Kansas City area. The network will also re-air the two pilot episodes, which involve a seventh area home. Day has since sold all of the homes.
In last night’s first episode, Day renovated a run-down kitchen in an 1897 Leawood bungalow, making it bigger and more modern while preserving traditional elements of a bungalow kitchen.
She and her dad, Ward Schraeder, who lives in Salina and is CEO and a principal partner at Medical Development Management, hunted down a large wood island for the space, then chose and helped build kitchen cabinets.
In the second episode, Day moved onto the master bedroom where she annexed a second room to create a large closet and added a bathroom to create a luxurious master suite.
Day and Schraeder found a tub that was a perfect fit but was painted black, so they had it painted white. She also found a way to deal with a missing fireplace tile.
Two back-to-back 30-minute episodes will air at 9 p.m. Wednesdays, through Dec. 27.
Reality Road Entertainment, a video production and casting company in the Crossroads Arts District, produced the show with its Los Angeles partner, Conveyor Media.
