In this episode, host Nathan Tempey takes on a huge topic in New York City real estate: renovation. Whether you're thinking about renovating, have lived through a renovation, or have sworn you will never take on a fixer upper, there's something in this episode for you.

Trained architect Jean Brownhill, founder and CEO of Sweeten, a company that matches New York-area homeowners with contractors (and a Brick Underground sponsor), offers professional and personal advice. And photographer Emily Gilbert shares the highs and lows of her recent redo of her Windsor Terrace co-op.
