DIY NETWORK GREENLIGHTS NEW SERIES 'BOOMTOWN BUILDER'
New York [Feb. 1, 2018] Once-grand homes in Arizona's old mining "boomtowns" will get new life as master craftsman Tim McClellan, star of the newly greenlighted DIY Network series, Boomtown Builder, helps families preserve their homes' original character and add modern conveniences. During the series, Tim will use the history of each property - from the home of the first boomtown dentist to the former newspaper printing press office - to drive the renovation and will salvage and repurpose old materials unique to the home. Eight half-hour episodes of the series are scheduled to premiere in August 2018.
"These old towns and homes are amazing," said Tim. "I want to help people realize their dream of living the Old West lifestyle. It's my business to make these homes go boom again!"
