About the show

In each episode of Raising House , a different dream house is built from start to finish by an A-team of experts. Beginning with the vision, the architect and builder lay out the floor plan, select a construction approach and outline the unique features. Next, the groundbreaking sets the pace for the entire project as the construction team rolls with the punches and tries to stay on schedule. Meanwhile, the design team selects the interior elements from floors to doors and kitchen cabinets to fireplace facades. Once the house is three-quarters of the way done, excitement builds, tensions are high and it's time for a last look before adding the finishing touches. Finally, the finished product is revealed: a dream house you were there for every step of the way.
