Are you or someone you know more like MacGyver than Mike Holmes? We’re looking for un-handy homeowners with an eccentric, unconventional approach to home repairs to participate in I Wrecked My House.
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?
If your go-to tool for home repair is more likely to be a roll of duct tape rather than a screw driver then we want you! 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 repair! We're on an Ontario-wide homeowner hunt to uncover the strangest wackiest, most extreme solutions to home repairs ever seen. Ideal candidates for this series are gregarious, fun loving people who don't take themselves too seriously and have an aptitude for completely outrageous DIY solutions.
By participating in the show, selected not-so-handy homeowners will have a chance to receive a major renovation to their home for FREE.
Submissions and nominations can be emailed to email@example.com with the following information:
1.The story behind the questionable home repairs;
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.
Production starts this fall. Please apply ASAP to the email above. Good luck!
