Episodes

Design, Planning & Demolition

There is a lot that goes into a home renovation from a homeowner’s perspective. In this episode we dive into design, planning, budgeting and getting bids from contractors…and then the demo begins!

20m
Kitchen & Dining

How many times have we heard ‘The Kitchen is the Heart of the Home’? Well, its the truth! And the heart of this home is getting designed in Italy with Anthony’s long time kitchen supplier. Anthony also has a big surprise in store for Jacey…hopefully she says yes!

15m
Living Room & Bar

The living room and bar are connected to the kitchen and dining area in the open concept part of the firehose floor plan, so the spaces need to work together to feel separated enough to define the space yet connected enough to have a cohesive design throughout the open concept. Anthony shares his thoughts as he works through his design decisions and product choices.

15m
Guest Suite & Powder Room

Creating a space for guests that is well designed and allows them to feel like they have a space all their own while they are at your house is a firm belief of Anthony’s. He also loves bold design choices for Powder Rooms!

15m
Office & Garage

No firehouse is complete without a fire pole; Anthony takes this one to the next level with a fall-away floor in his office that leads down to the garage area…its as close to a superhero exit as you can get! We also look at the importance of good home office design, as he creates a space that inspires his creativity.

15m
The Master Suite

In this flipped living plan the master suite is on the ground floor. Learn how Anthony not only created an efficient space for bed, bath, closets and laundry, but also how he completely sound proofed it from the floor above!

18m
The Roof Deck

The only thing better than outdoor space in a city, is outdoor space that doesn’t require a flight of stairs to get to! See how Anthony not only designed a beautiful roof deck, but how he connected it to the rest of the open concept part of his indoor living area. And he also takes you through his outdoor kitchen design.

15m
Smart Home Choices & Setup

Ah technology, and the love/hate relationship we have with it! Anthony’s belief is home tech should make your life easier, period. The home is no place for tech just for tech’s sake, so we look at the choices he’s made and why.

15m
Core Interior Systems & Exterior Facade

While not the sexiest episode, understanding the components that run your home and the efficiencies you can realize by making the right choices on day 1 is key to saving money over time by having equipment that both lasts, and runs efficiently. Anthony also has historic considerations because of the nature of his structure, which makes these choices all the more important.

The Rental Unit

Having enough square footage to incorporate a rental unit is a great way to off-set expenses. Anthony takes you through his process from design to rental tenant.
