HELP! I Wrecked My House Season 2 Behind the Scenes

12 comments

Alright you guys, the time has finally come when I get to come clean and share what I’ve been up to the last couple months.  It’s HELP! I Wrecked My House Season 2 behind the scenes time!  So for those of you that haven’t heard, a brand new season of my show HELP! I Wrecked my House is airing on HGTV and Discovery+ on Sept 6th at 9pm ET.  If you missed last season, they’ll be re-airing right before each new episode so set those DVRs, call your mom, tell your mom to call her friends, turn on every TV in your house and just let them run… you know the drill!!!

When I was looking through photos from Season 2 of HELP! I Wrecked My House I was like – OMG I NEED TO SHARE!  So for all of you that have been dm’ing with questions and stalking my stories for sneak peeks – HERE YA GO!  And I can’t wait to see you on Sept 6th at 9pm ET.  Who else is having a viewing party?!?!  Just me?

HELP! I Wrecked My House Season 2 – Behind the Scenes

Okay, the first thing that I have to tell you guys is how much work I put into specialty storage for my families this season.   And by “speciality storage,” we’re talking baskets, bins, drawers, built-ins, vintage cabinets, YOU NAME IT and I did it.  Most of my clients had wrecked their house so much, they hadn’t even had a chance to put it back together enough to think about storage – but if you’ve seen my show before, you know that in my opinion, it’s functionality (like storage) that makes a house really work and feel finished.  And you better believe that I’ve even stolen some of these ideas and used them in the #RothHomestead!

The other cool thing about this season – this paint booth right here!  I can’t tell you what I painted, but I can give a few hints: I’ve never painted one of these before, it was a major budget saver, I can’t wait to paint one of these again… and it rhymes with mafragamaker… 🙂

Help! I Wrecked My House Season 2

If you thought the houses I took on last season were intense, just imagine who was calling me for help after over 16 million people watched my show last year.  The calls I got… I can’t even believe some of the situations that people accidentally found themselves in.  I honestly wish I could help everyone!  And the really tough thing is, most folks have good intentions.  You know what I mean, right?  Nobody starts a renovation thinking that it’s going to take way longer, cost way more, and possibly consume all the happiness in their life.  But that’s exactly what happens.  I’m sure there are so many families just like the ones I was able to help on this season of HELP! I Wrecked My House and my hope is that by sharing these stories it will help other families I’ve never met find a path forward.

Help! I Wrecked My House Season 2

I tell my team literally every single day, “If it was easy, everyone would do this,” and ain’t that the truth!  In construction, there are literally 50 things that go wrong every single day.  My job is much less about how I handle things when they’re going okay, and much more about how I handle things when they’re going wrong… aka 99% of the time.  And as for this project, you guys all remember John Moss of @brassjunkie – he’s back this season with some REALLY COOL projects.

Two of the biggest challenges I deal with every single day are tight budgets and even tighter timelines.  The best answer to both of those problems – recycle!  That’s right, I’m always on the hunt for materials that are already on my jobsite that I can repurpose, reuse, and upcycle.  I can’t wait for you to see what I did with these old pavers I found in this backyard!

Oh, and we can’t forget my right-hand guy.  Hi, Scott Cross!  For those of you who don’t know Scott from SC Homes, where have you been?!  Ha!  Scott is one of my best General Contractors and he’s back to work these projects with me.  Also, let’s caption this photo:  Find someone that looks at you like I look at Scott when he’s under budget.  🙂 But in all seriousness, Scott and I worked our butts off to complete 8 houses in 90 days.  So much of the work we do is fixing what’s already been done (wrong) to these houses and helping the families that live in them get back on their feet and fall in love with their houses again.  Scott has one of the biggest hearts I know, so this is truly the perfect job for him.

And one more thing that I think is important to mention – and many of you probably already know this – construction is a challenge right now.  Materials are extremely expensive and hard to come by.  Products such as appliances, lighting, furniture… many are backordered for over 6 months.  To complete 8 houses in 90 days is an extraordinary undertaking as it is, but there were a lot of added challenges in trying to safely and reasonably operate during a global pandemic.  We don’t talk about it much on the show, but to anyone working on home renovation projects and coming up against delays, budget overages, and scarcity of supplies just know you’re not alone!

And well, that’s a good start.  I still have so much to show all of you and I’m sure you have a lot of questions for me to answer.  Pop your questions into the comments and I’ll post more photos really soon!  Oh and just in case you made it this far and don’t already know – I NEED YOU AT YOUR TV AT 9PM ET on 9/6.  Please and thank you.  Ha!
