For the first season the show revolved around Lewis' flip projects as he renovated homes and re-sold them for a profit. As the housing bubble popped in 2007, Lewis started to focus more on his home decorating consulting Business and less on flipping houses, though in season four he considered moving back into flipping small projects on the side.
