Plot Synopsis

Contractor Marnie Oursler gives outdated beach houses a new lease on life, making beach-living dreams come true -- even for people with a modest budget -- near Bethany Beach, Delaware. From gorgeous decks that make the most of ocean views, to beach glass inspired kitchens and customized sand-friendly spaces, she's taking classic beach houses that have been around forever and giving them modern updates while still preserving their charm. On Wednesday, January 13, 2016 at 7pm ET/PT DIY Network premiered the pilot episode of BIG BEACH BUILDS, with the program returning 14 months later for its official series premiere with back-to-back episodes on Monday, March 20, 2017 from 9-10pm ET/PT. In the series opener (9pm), "Amazing A-frame," a couple turns to Marnie to help them transform their shabby A-frame retreat into a beautiful family beach home. But when Marnie discovers the house is held up by broken cinderblocks, she must use her creativity and a little help from her dad to bring the house back to life. In the night's second episode (9:30pm), "The Beach Gut," a couple transports a 60-year-old house to a plot of land near the beach in the hopes it can be transformed into the perfect beach getaway. It's up to Marnie and her team to completely renovate the retired home while keeping the rustic charm and integrity from the 1960s.
On Monday, April 24, 2017 from 9-10pm ET/PT DIY Network premiered the season finale of BIG BEACH BUILDS, showing back-to-back new episodes. In the penultimate episode (9pm), "Rare and Recycled," a determined couple has found a 1960s gem of a beach home with a rare design element: a unique breezeway running through its center! While some may view the home as a teardown, the couple is serious about preserving its classic look and expanding upon the unique breezeway. Marnie faces one of her toughest challenges yet as she attempts to create a modern, fresh look without altering the structural design of the house. Along the way, Marnie and her crew run into issues the aging house has developed over time, like rotting posts under the back porch. Marnie must tackle the 50-year-old layout and transform this unique beach home into a fun space the family can enjoy for years to come. Then, in the season finale (9:30pm), "Save It or Sell It," a couple loves Lewes, Delaware, and the cheerful home they own there, but their two daughters have outgrown the space. Now, the family's torn between selling the house or renovating it. Can Marnie expand the lovely beach home without losing its historic charm?
