Opportunity Of A Lifetime

Pipestone Flyer

    Is your home in bad need of some TLC but you are a total klutz with caulk? Should a nailing gun placed in your hands be registered as a dangerous weapon? Are you more MacGyver than Mike Holmes? Then you'd better keep reading because this just might be your ticket to getting those rotting stairs replaced by something other than a milk crate!

    Über popular home renovation and decor channel HGTV is looking for renovation and repair challenged people in the Leduc/Wetaskiwin area to take part in a new Home & Garden Canada television special.

    In exchange for opening up your home and exposing your "creative" solutions to home repair you will have the opportunity to have your problems fixed professionally and for free! In a quote from their website the show is looking for "gregarious and fun loving people who don't take themselves too seriously."

    In order to apply for the show un-handy homeowners can be nominated or you can apply on behalf of yourself by sending an email to casting@mountainroad.ca with the following information included;

1. The story behind the questionable home improvements.

2. Photos of each of the eccentric repairs.

3. A photo of you and a photo of the not-so-handy person you are nominating.

4. Your contact information.

    The show begins filming this fall so they are encouraging anyone interested in applying do so immediately. 

    For more information on this show you can go to www.hgtv.ca/castingcall and check out several different interesting options they have listed. However, please be aware that this is currently the only opportunity available in western Canada. Good luck to everyone who applies and who knows, maybe being all thumbs will finally pay off! And if it does, please let us know! We would love to be able to follow up with a local homeowner who makes it onto the show!
