Where does Netflix's 'Dream Home Makeover' take place?

During the Netflix show's three-season run, Shea and Syd have taken on design projects (which range from cosmetic updates, to full-blown gut renovations, to everything in between) in Utah and in California.

The couple currently lives in the Salt Lake City area with their three daughters, Wren, Ivy, and Margot, so their Utah clients are often located close to home.

Syd is originally from California, which explains why the spouses often take on projects on the West Coast as well. Shea and Syd actually briefly lived in Southern California early on in their marriage.

While many scenes are filmed on-location at the work sites for their design projects, Syd and Shea also showcase their lives as parents on Dream Home Makeover. Their Salt Lake City home, which they renovated on Season 1, is often highlighted on the series.

As for their Utah-based projects, Shea and Syd spent episodes 2 and 6 in Salt Lake City. The fourth episode highlighted a basement renovation in nearby Draper, Utah.

If the show is renewed, will the McGees continue to take on projects exclusively in Utah and in California, or will they branch out to other states? Only time (and a pick-up for Season 4) will tell.

All three seasons of Dream Home Makeover are available to stream on Netflix now.
