How Scott McGillivray Turns a Dungeon-Like Cottage Into a Four-Season Vacation Playground

When people are planning their dream vacation, what they’re really looking for is an escape – not to be trapped in a dark, dingy dungeon of a property. Unfortunately for one couple, their family’s beach house was so dreary that it was literally scaring away potential vacation home renters. Luckily for the family, real estate expert and contractor Scott McGillivray used his vacation house rules to formulate a game plan – transforming the sad vacation house into a year-long renters’ playground.

Watch Scott’s Vacation House Rules on HGTV.ca, now also available through STACKTV with Amazon Prime Video Channels, or with the new Global TV app when you sign-in with your TV service provider details. HGTV is also available through all major TV service providers.
