Love what the team at General Products Outdoor Furniture put together for my ultimate deck. You know me, I hate to give up control, so when I put this all in the hands of Stuart and the team, and told them to suprise me, I didn't know what I would get back. But wow, I really have to say that they nailed it! What do you think?

Can your exhaust fans do the heavy lifting needed to pull that excess moisture out of your home? Here's how you test: turn your fan on, grab a tissue, and hold the tissue up to the fan and let go. If the tissue is held in place by the fan, it's in good shape. If it flutters to the ground, it might be time to have a pro look at your exhaust fan. #TipTuesday

I always saw TV as a problem. I was seeing too many people end up in a world of trouble because they were “inspired” by something they saw on TV. They would watch home improvement shows that made renovating a bathroom or finishing a basement seem easy. Next thing you know, they would spend thousands of dollars on fixtures and finishes that need to be ripped out not even six months later.

The shows I was seeing were only about the "lipstick and mascara"—granite countertops, crown moulding, hardwood floors, potlights, ceramic tiles, fancy bathroom fixtures—the eye candy. But they never taught viewers anything important about their homes. Things like proper building code, indoor air quality, making a house airtight, controlling moisture, or knowing if removing a wall will screw up structure.

My approach for Holmes on Homes was different. I thought if I could show people what a job done right is supposed to look like—using television—I could help save thousands of people from huge disasters.

There have been many times over the course of my career that I have wanted to quit filming. Then I think of all the homeowners who are looking for education and awareness, and I feel a sense of responsibility towards them.

Magazines and television shows inspire people to renovate. Home-improvement stores are full of great products, offer financing and seminars for homeowners. No wonder everyone wants to improve their home. Here are some things DIY shows don't show you.

Building is in my blood, and I got it from my father. I never really thought about television, but TV has allowed me to educate homeowners about what to look for in contractors, how to build it right and what proper building codes are.
