A total transformation with The Home Channel

Give your home a new lease on life with The Home Channel and The Home Channel + in August.

Farmhouse Facelift

Just because it’s old, doesn’t mean it’s past its prime! Siblings Billy Pearson, a craftsman contractor, and Carolyn Wilbrink, a designer, tackle the toughest farmhouse renovations for their clients, bringing stunning designs and customized modern conveniences to each project. These are tired homes that come to life with a bit of love.

A 150-year old property recently taken over by the next generation in the family gets a radical redesign to suit the new owners, and grandma, who still lives in the house with them. Two daughters enlist the help of Billy and Carolyn to makeover their mother’s farmhouse which is in need of a fresh new look and a few additions. And a couple moving to the country to live the slow life find that their home is not quite living up to the vision, so the team transform it into an entertainer’s dream!

Mondays 20:00 / Thursdays 16:00

Island of Bryan

The Baeumlers’ family adventure continues in a brand new season of Island of Bryan. Bryan and Sarah continue to take on new projects and build a home-base in Florida. After three years of transforming a run-down hotel into the upscale Caerula Mar Club, they’ve chosen a house in Florida to become their new home base.

The house has an attached airplane hangar and a community runway, allowing the Baeumlers quick access to the island and their other projects. Bryan finally achieves his lifelong dream of getting his pilot’s license, and Sarah opens a new office and pursues ambitious solo business ventures. They struggle to define wants vs. needs, their long-term plans in Florida, and what’s next, all while working on creating the most beautiful spaces.

Tuesdays 20:00 / Fridays 16:00
