Grin And Build It

LIVING – Tuesdays from 10 January, 10.30pm

Many a marriage has cracked under the stress of a home renovation project, and Grin and Build It cranks up the pressure with its mix of relationships, design and DIY – all on a gruelling three-day deadline, of course. Designer Heather Smillie and contractor Jon Giacomelli work hand in glove with homeowners as they reconcile home owner design differences and work on the renovation at hand. There are rules and unexpected twists and turns challenging the established roles in the homeowners’ relationship. The stage is set for everything from agony and frustration to empowerment and laughter. Who will crack first? Will they make it through the weekend and what will be the outcome?
