The fifth season of this sitcom features many changes for the Baxters, including Mike (Tim Allen) building a special office shed for Vanessa (Nancy Travis); and Kristin (Amanda Fuller) and Ryan (Jordan Masterson) purchasing their first house. Meanwhile, Eve (Kaitlyn Dever) takes up music as a hobby, and Mandy (Molly Ephraim) gets engaged to Kyle (Christoph Sanders).
