‘American Dream Builders’ Episode Guide (3/30): Palm Springs Renovations

“American Dream Builders” heads to Palm Springs to renovate two sleek midcentury modern homes. Two teams of designers will tackle sweeping makeovers for two mid-century Modern-style homes that are just a few doors down from one another in Palm Springs, Calif. This week the focus is on bringing a “dream home” to reality. The contestants are challenged to create a stunning “outdoor oasis” and, in the midst of things, must deal with a massive rainstorm that causes delays and frustrations.

Team Red (headed by Chicago-based designer Lukas Machnik) focuses on creating a tranquil master bedroom, an inviting indoor/outdoor space and they also take on several creative special projects, including a chicken-wire light fixture and a metal sculpture. The team struggles with time management and spends too much time on the sculptures. Team Blue (headed by New York-based designer Andrew Flesher) focuses on the front exterior and the overall interior color scheme.

Sparks fly when Team Blue designer Elaine Griffin chooses a color for her living room that everyone else dislikes for the rest of the home’s color scheme. After the judges Review the homes, Nate Berkus invites a local “neighborhood council” to vote on which house they feel is the best makeover. In the end, one designer from the losing team will be sent home. Nate Berkus hosts with Eddie George and Monica Pedersen joining as judges.

About “American Dream Builders”
Renowned designer Nate Berkus hosts NBC’s bold new one-hour reality competition series “American Dream Builders,” premiering March 23 at 8/7c.

Berkus, George and Pedersen will review the finished work and determine which team achieved the best results. After facing the panel of judges, the losing team must send one member home. In the finale episode, the last two designers will take on renovations for two impressive Southern California homes, bringing their unique vision to life.
