First Time Fixer, April 5, 2024, Magnolia, “California Time Capsule Becomes Beautiful Cottage”



First Time Fixer

In the season premiere of First Time Fixer, viewers witness a couple’s journey as they attempt to transform an antiquated California cottage into a stylish and cosy home. With a tight budget and a looming deadline, the pressure is on to create their dream abode.

The episode introduces viewers to a couple who have their hearts set on renovating a quaint cottage. With only ten weeks and limited funds, they must draw on their creativity and resourcefulness to bring their vision to life. The clock is ticking, and the stakes are high as they navigate the challenges of first-time home renovation.

The California cottage, built in 1927, presents a unique set of opportunities and obstacles for the budding renovators. With its humble beginnings as a rundown property, the cottage offers a blank canvas for the couple to imprint their style and personality. They embrace the opportunity to modernise and infuse their unique character into the space.

The transformation process entails more than just aesthetic changes. Structural modifications are also made to enhance the functionality and flow of the home. The couple meticulously plans each step, ensuring that their dream home becomes a reality within their means.


Throughout the renovation journey, the couple remains mindful of their budget constraints. They weigh the costs of various materials and make strategic choices to stay within their financial limits. This includes opting for polished concrete floors, a cost-effective yet visually appealing solution.

The couple also encounters obstacles that require flexibility and adaptability. When mould is discovered, they have to let go of their plans to salvage a bathroom vanity, opting for a new one instead. They learn that sometimes it’s necessary to make tough choices and deviate from the original plan.

In addition to their renovation endeavours, the couple faces the challenge of balancing their project with their personal lives. As first-time renovators, they experience the complexities of managing their time and resources while also tending to their other commitments and responsibilities.

As the deadline looms, the couple works tirelessly to meet their goals. Despite the challenges and setbacks, their dedication and perseverance drive them to the finish line. The sense of accomplishment and pride they feel upon completing their dream home makes all their efforts worthwhile.


First Time Fixer airs on Friday, April 5, 2024, at 8:00 PM on Magnolia.
