The Winnipeg Renovation Show
is fast approaching and the
countdown is officially on for opening day: Friday, January 15. With a
brand-new look and stellar talent roster, we’re itching to get the goods on all
things related to home renovation and design. Lucky for us, headlining this
year’s show is the man, the myth, and the contracting legend, Bryan Baeumler,
who’s making his Winnipeg Renovation Show debut.
It’s now been over eight years since Bryan was first
introduced to viewers across Canada and the US on Disaster DIY, and ever since, the veteran contractor has continued
to dole out renovation and design advice on a series of hit HGTV shows
including Leave It to Bryan, House of Bryan and Canada’s Handyman Challenge. The House of Bryan series continues to be the highest rated series on
the HGTV network, breaking all viewership records.
In addition to successfully owning and operating Baeumler
Quality Construction, Baeumler Approved, and the Baeumler Family Foundation,
Bryan recently launched his first bestselling book called Measure Twice. He is
the recipient of numerous awards including a Gemini award and was also included
in the Professional Builder’s Top 40 under 40 in 2014.
In anticipation of his appearance at the Winnipeg Renovation Show

ask him a few questions on home renovation and design.
