Homeowners and contractors are shown working together, using a variety of durable and repurposed materials. But, like any renovation series, the show also highlights some of the more difficult and frustrating problems that arise. Many of the homeowners suffer unexpected and often expensive setbacks -- including unexpected structural problems, shipping delays, and working with materials that have been incorrectly measured. But despite scheduling problems and blown budgets, all the hard work appears to pay off thanks to the energy that will be saved and the money homeowners will make when they sell the upgraded house.

While much of the show's focus is on how green renovations translate into major financial gains, it never moves away from highlighting the importance of finding ways to support the environment. And despite some very occasional strong language (which is fully bleeped) and visible company logos, the show is fine for all ages. Kids may not be particularly interested in the subject matter, but for anyone intrigued by green renovation ideas, this show is sure to please.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
