New York [For Immediate Release - June 29, 2015] DIY Network will inspire homeowners to kick start their summer home improvement projects with two new series. American Rehab: Virginia, premiering on Wednesday, July 8, at 11 p.m., will follow the restoration process of a 250-year-old Virginia home. The Treehouse Guys, premiering on Tuesday, July 14, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, will showcase an adventurous team of builders as they create fun one-of-a-kind family treetop retreats. Premiere episodes of viewer favorite series are also on tap, including Yard Crashers (Chris Lambton) on Monday, July 6, at 10 p.m. ET/PT; House Crashers (Josh Temple) on Monday, July 6, at 11 p.m. ET/PT; and Sledgehammer (Jason Cameron) on Monday, July 27, at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
"Whether you're interested in historic home restoration, whimsical treehouses or fast-paced smash and remodel jobs, DIY Network will ignite your passion for do-it-yourself projects," said Allison Page, general manager, HGTV, DIY Network and Great American Country.
The home featured in American Rehab: Virginia, Mount Airy, has been in Tayloe Emery's family for 10 generations - and some of its rooms haven't been touched since it was built in the 18th century. Each episode follows the process as Tayloe and his wife Catherine tackle a full restoration of the estate while preserving its beauty and history.
In The Treehouse Guys, builder B'fer Roth and his crew of "treehouse dreamers" showcase their unique twist on traditional home building. Each episode features the team as they climb high and build spectacular treehouses, from Hobbit-style cottages to open air structures that offer unparalleled woodland views.
Demolition is the name of the game in Sledgehammer when host Jason Cameron surprises homeowners with a sledgehammer and permission to trash and remodel their most-hated rooms.
Meanwhile, more kitchen and outdoor renovations are on the way with new episodes from the Crashers franchise. Homeowners get a major surprise when they run into builder Josh Temple and his House Crashers crew at the local home improvement store. In each episode, one lucky shopper hands over their house keys so Josh and his team can execute a total room transformation. In new episodes of Yard Crashers, landscape expert Chris Lambton is on the lookout for home improvement shoppers who are game to get a total backyard makeover.
