DIY Network to Premiere New Series HOLMES & HOLMES Today
Professional contractor Mike Holmes will team up with his son, home renovation expert Mike Jr., to transform the twentysomething's bachelor pad into a proper home in the new DIY Network series HOLMES & HOLMES. Premiering Tuesday, January 3, at 10 p.m.ET/PT, the six-episode series will follow the duo as they gut, renovate and expand the single-story 750-square foot bungalow into two-story home for Mike Jr. and his girlfriend Lisa. While Mike and Mike Jr. share a last name, a strong work ethic and a desire to help others, they don't always agree - though they always vow to build it right."There are two things that matter most to me in life," said Mike. "First is to build homes right and second is to take care of my family. When I can combine the two, it makes me a very happy guy." During the series, the Holmes team will face the challenges of any major home reno, from cracked foundations and water damage to budget shortfalls and time crunches. Each episode will focus on one stage of the renovation process and showcase the father/son journey as they tackle the project together using the latest construction materials and build techniques. "I've been working with and learning from my dad for more than 10 years," said Mike Jr. "We don't always see eye to eye, so this renovation will be a learning experience for all of us."
