11. This person shared their family friends’ unfortunate experience getting their home redone on TV:
Some family friends were on one of those shows…Their son was 6ish years old and really into trains, so he got an insanely train-themed room, complete with a ride-on train that chugged slowly on a track around the room. It was great at first, but he outgrew it really quickly and was embarrassed by his train room within a few years. … The paint on the outside of the house started chipping off within weeks and the house looked HORRIBLE with big chunks of peeled-off paint.
