I'm one of these guys that does 90% of his own remodling. I search and buy second hand materials and reuse lumber when ever possible so I know the numbers don't add up.
But the show is entertaining and I like that they keep it simple for us simple minded.[emoji23]

Complete guts, best of everything. Unaffordable to must of us viewers.
