As the house approaches completion, Sarah wants every detail to be perfect. When it comes to big ticket items like hardwood flooring, "perfect" is a moving target. Sarah and Alex have to pull the team together to finish the living room.
With the "principal suite" underway, Sarah and Alex decide to take a trip together, leaving Ed and Tommy to manage the site. Trouble ensues creating a ripple effect that could put Sarah's entire build behind schedule.
Together with her husband Alex, Sarah begins building an off the grid house in the country. After deciding to be their own contractors, Sarah turns to fellow HGTV star Mike Holmes for some advice. While Mike approves of their plan, he warns them that a project like this is full of potential "divorce dust." Sarah and Alex work together to stay on time and on budget, and enjoy the satisfaction of completing their first space: a third-floor hideaway where they can take in the views.
