DIY Network Premieres ‘Restored’ and ‘Maine Cabin Masters’ in January
New York [For Immediate Release—December 14, 2016] DIY Network will premiere two new series that showcase the tenacity and mastery required to renovate historic homes. Premiering Wednesday, January 11, at 10 p.m. ET/PT, Restored will star preservationist Brett Waterman as he revives a variety of old homes with fascinating stories to their original luster. In Maine Cabin Masters, premiering on Monday, January 9, at 10 p.m. ET/PT, the series will follow builder Chase Morrill as he teams up with his sister, brother-in-law and best friend to save rundown cabins buried deep in the remote woods of Maine.
In Restored, Brett will showcase the transformation of character-filled homes gone wrong. He will reveal the unrealized potential hidden beneath neglect, bad renovations and unsightly additions on various home styles including Craftsman, Victorian, Spanish and mid-century modern.
“It’s my job to return a home to the way it was intended to be,” said Brett. “The character of these old homes just needs to be rediscovered. An older home is not supposed to look brand new but should look beautifully maintained.”
During the season of Maine Cabin Masters, Chase and his team travel throughout Maine to restore century-old cottages, lakeside camp cabins and even a cabin on an isolated island in need of major repairs. The episodes will feature the dynamic foursome as they give these dilapidated properties the facelift they have needed for decades.
“We love working on the cabins,” said Chase. “It is kind of bittersweet finishing each project, but we leave knowing we’ve done a great job and really put our heart and soul into it.”
