New HGTV Canada Special to be hosted by Steve Patterson of CBC Radio’s ‘The Debaters’ is looking for un-handy homeowners with an eccentric, unconventional approach to home repairs.
Who says you can't use old crutches to hold up the stairs? Your leg healed, so why not put those crutches to good use. Better yet, how about using a car jack to hold up that beam in the basement?
This person’s go to tool for home repair is more likely to be a roll of duct tape rather than a hammer or screw driver. Maybe they’ve used roofing shingles to tile the foyer? Not such a bad idea, considering those shingles have a 25 year guarantee! And why return your empties for a refund, when an old can converts into a new shower head? Now that’s worth more than five cents! Who says you can’t install used linoleum on the kitchen walls for a backsplash? Why waste good flooring! Or use that trusty duct tape in place of caulking around the bathtub.
We want to hear more about these “kooky” and bizarre approaches to home repairs.
We’re on a Canada-wide homeowner hunt to uncover creative ingenuity and whacky solutions to home repairs and “improvements”. Ideal candidates for this 1-hour special are gregarious, fun loving people who don’t take themselves too seriously.
By participating, these not-so-handy homeowners will see their creative handiwork fixed for FREE.
Un-handy homeowner nominations can be emailed to email@example.com with the following information:
1. The story behind the questionable home improvements;2. Photos of each of the eccentric repairs;3. A photo of you and a photo of the not-so-handy person you are nominating;4. Your contact information.
Deadline for submissions: Production starts this fall. Don't delay, apply now!
