A House Divided

I think the biggest takeaway from tonight's episode was this -- house renovations are hard on a couple. And when the couple is Jeff Lewis and Gage, well, that's compounded maybe 100 times.

There was clearly some tension over the house due to the budget and making decisions etc. And given that Jeff is trying to design his personal dream home, one can only imagine the attention to every single detail is on another level that no mere mortal can fathom. (The man is putting in a power generator lest a power outage cause his vodka to become warm!)

So when Jeff saw that sprinkler spraying the side of the house, you knew it was trouble. We then witnessed the first big fight between Jeff and Gage, and it was not pretty. Thus I can't decide whether Jeff's idea to abandon Gramercy and just buy Spring Oak is inspired or insane. On the one hand if they just take Spring Oak, they're done. They can move in and finish Gramercy on their own timeline and relax. On the other hand so much blood, sweat, and tears went into Gramercy already, is it madness to stop now? Who can say?
