“You may know me from flipping houses,” said Christina. “But there’s a lot more sides to me than that. I’m a mom with a new business venture, a new man and a new point of view. I’m helping people create beautiful new spaces to spend time with their families. There is something wonderful about reinventing someone’s world.”

In the series opener, Christina takes on the most personal project of her career—an extensive home renovation for her childhood friend, Cassie Zebisch. Christina modernizes the home’s kitchen and living areas and, as a special surprise for Cassie, designs a quintessential outdoor patio for hanging with friends.

The season also includes a special episode where Christina and Ant give their pool a full makeover and transform their backyard into an outdoor paradise. A refreshing oasis with a tube water slide, outdoor kitchen, bar and hot tub is just the beginning of a spectacular outdoor haven.
