Gut Job

When pro athlete turned all-star builder Sebastian Clovis discovered the ‘dream home’ he had just purchased required a total nightmare Gut Job, he tackled it like he has everything in life – all in. 

Stripping his house back to the studs to rebuild it safer and more stunning than ever, Sebastian knows how overwhelming the process can be. For less prepared homeowners, a paralyzing barrage of decisions and surprises could put them months behind and wildly over budget, but this reno expert has the know-how and the passion to tackle it all head on. 

Sebastian is on a mission to guide homeowners through the biggest renovations of their lives, bringing his creativity, support and team to each project. Together they design, demolish, rebuild and beautify their nightmare properties into jaw-dropping dream homes.

Eyes for the Job

On Eyes for the Job, viewers follow handyman Chris Judge, who is blind, along with co-host Erwan Fresq, as they take on do-it-yourself projects in their community working from their travelling workshop in a converted camper van. From renovating kitchens and home offices to backyards and basements, Chris and Erwan tackle DIY with a smile.

Born the son of a carpenter, Chris’ interest in building started at a young age. Always eager to learn new skills, that interest grew into a passion for carpentry and other do-it-yourself projects, making Chris a lifelong handyman. He brings a unique perspective to the show as he was also born blind and will share some of his accessibility tips in the hopes of inspiring other individuals who are blind or partially sighted to get creative and try some DIY projects of their own.
