KITCHENS OF BARGAIN MANSIONS PART 1

Now that the news is out that we will be having a BARGAIN MANSIONS season two, I wanted to take a look back and see the beautiful kitchens we renovated on season one. Tamara has me working hard just about everyday filming for season two and we're already excited to...

KID’S PLAYROOM

KID’S PLAYROOM

If you have the space for it, a kids playroom is a great investment. My wife, Trish, taught me that it’s important for children to have their own space where imagination and playtime can be at an all time high. Plus, this means less of a mess in the rest of your home!...

TRAVEL TIPS

How do you pack for a trip? This is something that I struggle with due to the wide range of activities I usually do on vacation. During the day, I will be hiking but at night we will be out at a nice dinner or exploring the town. It’s hard to know what to pack and how...
