New York [For Immediate Release – April 8, 2016] Licensed contractor and carpenter Jeff Devlinrestores centuries old homes in DIY Network’s new series, Stone House Revival, premiering Wednesday, May 11, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The 13-episode series follows Jeff – who first gained a following on DIY Network’s I Hate My Bath and appeared in both seasons of Ellen’s Design Challenge – as he and his team of restoration experts work to transform dilapidated properties in Bucks County, Penn. In each episode, Jeff refurbishes the homes into modern living spaces, while preserving the home’s historic integrity.
“I’ve been renovating homes around Bucks County for more than 20 years and most of them are older than the country itself,” said Jeff. “People take the heart out of the home when they strip it down or try to change it into something new. We’re going show how we restore and renovate these places and save some history, too.”
In the premiere episode, Jeff restores a master bedroom and library for a couple who own an amazing stone home that dates back to the 1700s. The two rooms, which sit in the two additions built onto the home – one in 1775 and the other in 1930 – lack some of the historic character from the oldest part of the house. With tools in hand, Jeff and his crew demo the space and then bring in era-specific details to make each room looks like a true part of the original structure.”
