Imagine the crew from Ocean’s Eleven are contractors, and instead of a heist they are pulling off a major remodel — all while the homeowners are out to dinner. Just like in every caper film, our crew will need intel, a warehouse to mock up and practice the job, and time at the site without getting caught. Those homeowners better eat slow and order dessert!
Can you increase the value of your home by $10,000 in just two weekends? Sure you can, thanks to DIY Network’s Sweat Equity, a show dedicated to helping you determine which home improvement projects will return the most bang for your buck. Is it better to install new kitchen cabinets or just reface the old ones? Are granite countertops really worth the cost? Should you put more money into the bathroom or your kitchen? Licensed contractor Amy Matthews and her team of DIY Network experts help homeowners tackle these projects themselves, giving tips and techniques for building equity every step of the way. With the knowledge you gain from this show, and a little bit of sweat, you can increase the value of your home — and the enjoyment you get by living there.
In This New House, a new magazine-style series on DIY Network, co-hosts Amy Matthews and This Old House‘s Kevin O’Connor bring viewers inside homes across the U.S. that feature innovative building materials, techniques, and gadgets. The best part: Kevin and Amy demonstrate how homeowners can make their homes smarter with the touch of their do-it-yourself buttons.
