Gayle takes Esther and Nathan on a tour of their new home with their grandson, Jamal. In the living room, Gayle reveals a big surprise for Nathan—experts restored the portrait he painted of his wife! Now Nathan's prized work of art finds new life in their new home.

The kitchen contains more surprises, including fully stocked cabinets and brand new appliances. Fresh flowers and pretty place settings grace the elegant dining room table. Plus, Esther and Nathan have everything they'll need to keep their home looking new, from a vacuum cleaner to a washer and dryer.

In Esther and Nathan's new master bedroom, shades of blue and brown create a soothing space. A framed photo of the couple with Nate, taken when the house was under construction, reminds them of all their hard work. Nathan says he is proud to know he had a hand in building his own home. "The best part about it is that it's personal," Nathan says.

"I couldn't guess how beautiful it would be!" Esther says.
