Do you have an unusual approach to home repairs?

Do your “improvements” raise everyone else’s eyebrows?

If yes is the answer, Mountain Road Productions would like to hear from you.

Mountain Road is producing an HGTV Canada Special to be hosted by Steve Patterson of CBC Radio’s The Debaters.

The special will be a celebration of the completely unique and utterly outside-the-box approach to home maintenance, and Mountain Road is looking for homeowners with an eccentric, unconventional “kooky” approach to home repairs.

The goal is to uncover great characters with a bizarre sense of home ‘improvement,’ and houses filled with jury-rigged solutions that are at complete odds with mainstream expectations.

A Canada-wide homeowner hunt to uncover the strangest wackiest, most extreme solutions to home repairs is underway and the company is interested in coming to  the Salmon Arm area.

Five sets of homeowners are being cast and as part of the special they’ll have an opportunity to get their offending un-handiwork fixed for free by a team of experts.

Un-handy homeowner submissions and nominations can be emailed to casting@mountainroad.ca with the following information:

• The story behind the questionable home improvements;

• Photos of each of the eccentric repairs;

• A photo of you and a photo of the not-so-handy person you are nominating;

• Your contact information.

Production starts this fall, so anyone who is interested in taking part in this production is encouraged to enter immediately.
