This is a great house.


So I've convinced you of...

my daring, brilliant

45-day plan, huh?

Well, I don't know.

Can we get

the money back?


Then I'm convinced.


I might still need

a little convincing.

It's your plan.

No, it's our plan.

Water damage.


I don't even know

where to start.

Kitchen. Definitely

the kitchen.

Specifically the stove.

Oh, I need drip pans

and an ignitor.

Okay. Well, if you're

gonna start in the kitchen,

then maybe

I'll start upstairs.

I have big plans

for the master bedroom.

I wonder what kind

of tile they have?

Oh, that reminds me.

The staircase

is a bit rickety,

so we might have to

replace the entire thing

and start from scratch.

- Jeff?

- What?

That's the original


That's custom woodwork.

You can't just rip it out.

You know what?

I think we might have to,

I'm sorry to say.

Jeff, we don't want to be

the kind of flippers

who don't care about

the integrity of the house.

We improve and refurbish.

Maybe we could use

some help.

Will you just trust me?

Let's get out of here.

Don't you think we should

have called someone

before we just

started digging?

Oh, definitely not.

Make us fill out

a bunch of paperwork

and make us wait

three weeks.

We don't have time

for all that red tape.

As opposed

to yellow tape?

We're going to find

this gas main,

and close to that,

the water main.

How does a nice

hot bath sound?


Right? Now get to work.

Damn it.

We can now officially

brush our teeth.


Oh, these

are lead pipes.

I checked the pipes

in the bathroom.

They're PVC.

They need new fittings.

I can do new fittings, but...

But these are lead.

They need to be

completely replaced.

They're dangerous,

and perhaps

they're poisonous.
