Tool Time features changes at the K&B Construction site - and those changes include a woman foreman, Les. Tim challenges her to a "battle of tools." For Mother's Day, Tim and the boys want to get rid of the swingset and surprise Jill with a hot tub in its place. The surprise is on them however; she'd rather have a herb garden, and Tim finds out that the swingset means more to them than he first thought.
