Do you have a bizarre sense of home ‘improvement’?Monday, January 14, 2013 by: Kate AdamsMountain Road Productions Ltd
Do you know someone who is more MacGyver than Mike Holmes? Do these ingenious home improvements include such feats as installing linoleum as a backslash in the kitchen and using duct tape in place of caulking around the bathtub?
Mountain Road Productions is undertaking an Ontario-wide search for homeowners with unique approaches to home repair to feature in a new TV series in development with HGTV. This series will be a celebration of the completely unique and utterly outside the box approach to home maintenance.
“Our goal is to uncover great characters with a bizarre sense of home ‘improvement’,” says Executive Producer, Tim Alp.
“We are looking for jerry-rigged solutions that are at complete odds with main stream expectations.”
This homeowner hunt will focus on small towns and rural communities to uncover creative ingenuity. These home solutions are whacky and ideal candidates for this TV show would never consider paying someone else to solve a problem they’d troubleshoot it themselves. Who says you can’t use old crutches to hold up basement stairs. Your leg healed, so why not put those crutches to good use? Or install used linoleum on the kitchen walls for a back splash. Why waste good flooring! Or use that trusty duct tape in place of caulking around the bathtub.
By participating in this fun new series, our expert host will fix the creative handy work and renovate that part of the house for FREE.
