I’ve pretty much given up on good information from the TV Networks. DIY is not very good, mundane information presented Sesame St. style. HGTV . . . . sheeesh . . . where to start, it wasn’t very good to begin with and has gone steadily downhill, and has for presentation, well . . . it makes Sesame St. seem intellectual.
The 3rd channel in this bunch is Discovery Home, not much here either. Maybe even worse, if that is possible. However there is one program on DHome that has caught my attention . . . it’s Holmes on Homes. This guy; Mike Holmes, seems like my kind of guy. From their website:
Please keep the premise of the show in mind… Mike rescues homeowners who have been ripped off by contractors or have been left with a job that wasn’t done right the first time. This does not include, Do It Yourself projects gone wrong, renovations done by previous owners or problems related to a lack of home maintenance.
Mike seems to have a lot of integrity, he acts and produces work professionally. He goes beyond the basic code standards. He’s a do it right, use the right tools, be proud of your work, respcect the clients kind of guy.
Mike Holmes . . . Holmes on Homes it’s worth a look.
Addendum: I just found out the show is also on HGTV at various times. I’ve only seen it on DHome. Speaking of DHome their page on Holmes on Homes is less than thrilling.
