ADDITIONAL NOTES: completed airing its first season on 8/28/14; has yet to be renewed for a second season
DESCRIPTION: (from HGTV's press release, June 2014) Popular mommy blogger Jen Hatmaker and her husband Brandon, a motorcycle-riding pastor, star alongside their five kids in HGTV's newest home renovation series, My Big Family Renovation. Premiering on Thursday, August 7, at 11 p.m. ET/PT, the series chronicles the Hatmaker family as they sell their home and embark on the biggest adventure of their lives -- buying a 105-year old farm house that requires them to pitch in and live through its major overhaul. The renovation includes the addition of bathrooms and a rec room as well as the conversion of old attic space into bedrooms. Beginning in July, HGTV.com will feature behind-the-scenes photo galleries of the renovation and series highlights as well as links to posts from Jen's blog, www.jenhatmaker.com.
