Agnese and Mārtiņš live in an apartment in Ogre and the room they have decided to renovate is their shared Home Office. The one who decided to take part in the makeover show was Agnese, as she spends here more time.

A garage, a library or a room for hobbies?

Meet Oskars, Ilva and young Kārlis – a small family ready for a big change. The room they have chosen for the makeover is mainly Oskar's turf: it is here he pursues his hobbies and spends much of his leisure time.

Yet, the challenge of organising the former garage/library into a full-fledged hobby room has been just too time-consuming until now.
