Kristin Wells, former cohost of “HomeMakers”, an all female
renovation show that was on Turner South, has started filming a new renovation show for HGTV. The show has begun filming in Charlotte NC and will begin airing on HGTV within the year. The new show is geared to do it yourselfers and will include a lot of do it yourself participation. Each show will have a budget of $ 3,000 and must be a project that can be completed in a weekend.
Kristin, who grew up in Greensboro NC, became interested in
home repairs and renovations when she was living in Portland OR. While living there, she began working on the side with a local contractor to learn remodeling skills. However, the seeds may have been planted by Kristin watching her dad do a renovation of their home when she was 3 years old. There is a picture of Kristin leaning against a ladder and holding a hammer. Also, her great grandfather felled the trees, milled the lumber and built his own house.
Kristin has expertise in many areas of construction as well as
having a knack for design. She does framing, drywall, and lots
of tile work and is not afraid to get her hands dirty. She was
also coowner of a Charlotte renovation company several years ago and did incredible transformations on high end homes in the Charlotte area. She has also cohosted a special on HGTV.
