I know people give FaceBook a bad rap sometimes but it is cool way to keep connected with people really I love this right. Had they seen each other since high school is like high school re you know yes we have here. Yet no we have actually OK I following camera obviously we've been connected on FaceBook. And so we fall each other there and then we saw that she was doing design work and that sort of stuff. And then so we connected winning when we had our Prairie Village house and said hey we need some help she's the real deal like Intel. And we connected or was that before the TV shows stuff came that is windier still I think in the pilot. Okay but it hadn't been picked up yet here we are starting and then you saw it yeah. And we had to have you with the new and look this amount on the grass and I was yeah we haven't talked to do it really was a mass but let's talk to camera let's not talk about high school. I don't want a title that off air when I know all of Brady's deep dark secret there's a lot of unfortunately Tom and they're not secrets either and the camera let's talk a out a new show on DIY. Tell us about it it's coming to fruition and it starts this month its search next week wow yes Wednesday the fifteenth 9 PM on that Arab network. Central standard time and it's our intentions are renovating. Seven houses here in Kansas City. Top to bottom and there at the bay old. Houses are they well in in a similar area know. Well all over the so we've got three down and like the Hyde Park area and we've got. Couple out and we would and a couple right off where it's just like a little mix and everything all you. The common denominator is their giant. They're old and destroy it really so were they like. When you say destroyed rundown in the lap really feel like these are the houses nobody else on things they are and amazingly bad condition Nia and they're not something that most people at him like let's turn this in imagery was the worst thing in and one of those homes. Well worse is in its creed we would be the mummified animals and will stop. Happens all the time on my lawyers think that is the greatest hour I could occur. Told let me tell me you can install it's there's quite well I'm happy valley doesn't have an amateur at all. What is structurally the biggest issue you dealt what do we I think the very first house of the season is Charlotte house and it is on Charlotte it. Was so abandoned. That it had been and had been at an old folks coming and then Cade Foster home had Ben. It was over a 120 years or. Wow and somebody else had started renovating they gotten and and then you're fine and took all the walls now and then sent no. I am too deep in and instead of file finding animals in the while he probably finance found diapers time. How and then all of a lot. I'm not a candidate now open so win this just structurally it is. So fairly sound like one set of house was falling off literally now the whole bay window you could. Him through the wild and under the wall the outside and inside an at one point eight. The whole side of the house it's crazy OK it's called bargain mansions now it's called that because these houses you got. At a reasonable price and that Massey who they are massive homes there's nothing under. 4000 square feet while huge homes. I'd buy them for. Design error. Or it's only top. Each one of my favorite things about the show not just the fact that it's in Kansas City not just that you're the host. But it's a family affair. Talk about that well might. Yes. Which yeah yeah yes they. Ever doubted that maybe not a fan of men ease up slow. It it got close. At eight. No no now now she answered quickly yeah. Standards legally.
