Renovations Series

1 – Flipping Out
Toby is a lawyer who spends his free time “flipping” houses, which means buying a fixer-upper and selling it once it’s cleaned up. He met contractor Ven on his last flip, and decided he liked the guy a lot. He likes Ven’s work ethic, his style, and maybe a lot more.

2 – Playing House
Ven is still working as Toby’s main contractor, flipping houses, and this time around there’s more than one project going on. Toby’s other contractor falls behind, and Toby asks Ven to fill in, but when Ven gets another job offer, will the boys be able to work things out and keep on working together?

2.5 – Making Time
Ven hopes his lover, Toby, has no plans for Halloween, because he has a lot of things he’d like to do. When he calls Toby up, though, the man is with his kids, trick-or-treating. Toby is more than happy to join Ven for some dancing and more afterward, though. Will they get all the treats they want?

3 – Moving Day
The pleasant routine of Ven’s life is upended when Cake gets notice that he can move into the assisted living facility where he’s always dreamed of living. Cake is ready to live on his own, and Toby is ready to make other moves, but Ven isn’t ready for any of it.
