Episode Recap

Peter has high hopes for the Foundation Investments' newest find. A small house on Beechview Drive in southeast Atlanta is a short sale steal and Peter and Brian stand to make a big return on a modest investment. The team plans to tear down a badly built addition in the back of the house and turn it into a new master suite. Asbestos inside and out takes a massive chunk out of their once generous renovation budget. As demo begins the removal of each layer of the house reveals a new problem and soon the house is stripped down to the studs. Moving on to the yard--a giant tree with far-reaching roots encroaches on the foundation, creating big landscaping issues.
