Set your DVR for Holmes + Holmes on DIY Network which premieres on Tuesday, July 10, at 9pm EST/PST. During the 12 episodes of the upcoming season, you watch Mike Holmes Sr. (professional contractor) and his son Mike Holmes Jr. (home renovation expert) "make it right" as they buy and transform three tiered properties into dream homes! Along the way, we also see wedding planning with Mike Jr. to his fiancée Lisa throughout the season.
“I’ve worked for my dad for well over a decade and now we’re teaming up and going into business together,” said Mike Jr. “This paired with planning my wedding is a new—and challenging—experience for me.”
Of course in addition to fixing homes, anticipation of an upcoming wedding - there is also the focus of the hardships that can take place when working with family. As they are officially business partners in a new venture, the first episode shows Mike Jr. being surprised to learn his dad had already purchased the house that will be their first project. After the shaky start, the duo agrees to work on the ground rules of their new partnership so they can get along and turn a profit.
“I’ve been in construction more than 35 years, and I’ve seen it all and fixed it all,” said Mike. “The best part is I’ve been able to teach my son everything I know along the way. And now getting to be business partners with him is something I always hoped would be in the cards for us.”
