Summary
New York adman Jim Blandings is ready to say goodbye to his cramped city apartment and build, from the ground up, a Connecticut home with room enough for his growing family and dreams. All it will cost him is his time and money and perhaps his job, marriage, happiness, and what's left of his sanity. Goodbye, Manhattan. Hello, comedy. Jim is a flustered poster boy for homeowner anxiety in this gleeful laugh-fest. Aspect ratio is dependent on TV model
