From DIY Network:
New York [For Immediate Release – December 8, 2016] Professional contractor Mike Holmes will team up with his son, home renovation expert Mike Jr., to transform the twentysomething’s bachelor pad into a proper home in the new DIY Network series Holmes & Holmes. Premiering Tuesday, January 3, at 10 p.m.ET/PT, the six-episode series will follow the duo as they gut, renovate and expand the single-story 750-square foot bungalow into two-story home for Mike Jr. and his girlfriend Lisa. While Mike and Mike Jr. share a last name, a strong work ethic and a desire to help others, they don’t always agree – though they always vow to build it right.
“There are two things that matter most to me in life,” said Mike. “First is to build homes right and second is to take care of my family. When I can combine the two, it makes me a very happy guy.”
During the series, the Holmes team will face the challenges of any major home reno, from cracked foundations and water damage to budget shortfalls and time crunches. Each episode will focus on one stage of the renovation process and showcase the father/son journey as they tackle the project together using the latest construction materials and build techniques.
“I’ve been working with and learning from my dad for more than 10 years,” said Mike Jr. “We don’t always see eye to eye, so this renovation will be a learning experience for all of us.”
What do you think? Do you watch the DIY Network? Will you watch Holmes & Holmes?
Did I hear it correctly when they painted a home and said it was cork added to paint?
What happen to the new season on Holmes & Holmes, DYI advertised it for September 2 and it was never shown. Just like a Cable channel, advertise a show and then not show it.
Loved the show, however the role of the son should be toned down. A little smarmey.
Cool show. I hope it comes back on soon.
Dear Mr. Holmes…. I know you & your Son are extremely busy. I’m 67 Years Young and no one thinks I should have a She Shead because of the heat here. Also We have NO Cover for our Patio. If there are two Professionals who could do it….it would b you & your Son. We have watched you for YEARS on TV and Love how you have the Courage to do Things the RIGHT way. Would you possible consider a She Shead by chance since its so HOT here in the SUMMER. Also our kitchen is so small I guess… Read more »
Who is the manufacturer of the rigid foam that you used on the country house remodel. Its was use on the outside of a 2×4 wall to add extra insulation. Watched the episode on July 24th, it was while adding the 2nd story addition to the center of the farm house.
We just finished watching the 3 homes that you so magnificently transformed . Just wondering the country one was located approx. ? We live in Brockville [ so not far from the River Home ], so if your ever down this way looking for a project our home would give you a mega challenge . Mike , you have always been a hero for me , as I admire your high work standards and integrity and it is wonderful to see your son following in those same footsteps . Thank you, Rose T.
