Hit the Deck
In the shadow the Rocky Mountains is the home of Yvonne and Tadashi. They had an addition added that included a covered front porch and entranceway. During construction, they began to get worried when the renovation in progress didn't exactly match the building plans. When the contractor began asking for the substantial completion payment before the job was finished, they refused and offered to have a lawyer hold the payment in trust until the work was done. The contractor walked off the job, and they called Mike Holmes to come to Canmore Alberta, and 'Make it Right'.

Re-Inventing
Holmes On Homes heads to the back woods to fix a cottage on an island! Mike and the team find the water obstacle a challenge as they renovate a bathroom and repair deck railings for the retired cottage owner, Anne. She had difficulty trying to finding contractors that would venture to her cottage, and the one that finally did had spent more time fishing than working, or so it seemed. Mike and the team encounter renovation challenges unique to three-season cottages and working in remote locations.
 
Brick a Brack
When Mike arrives at the home of Val and Dave, he thought it was an exterior renovation repair only- until he went inside. Originally, the scope of the project involved repairing a home that suffered from defective brick- the face of the brick was falling off, causing it to quickly erode. This weakened masonry was causing the chimney to lean dangerously and the bottom rows of brick were so compromised that replacement was needed to prevent the brick walls from collapsing. When Mike went inside the home, he discovered that the homeowners were literally drowning in ...
 
Blind Faith
Al and Jennifer attended a charitable auction to raise money for their church. One of the prizes being offered was $15,000 value towards a bathroom renovation. Al and Jennifer won the prize- It seemed like a win-win situation. And because the contractor was affiliated with their church, they simply trusted that everything would go well.It didn't. After spending a total of 30K, all they had to show for it was a roughed in bathroom- and a big hole in their family room ceiling, where the contractor put his foot through. They had finally had enough with this unholy terror...
 
Behind the scenes
A typical episode of 'Holmes On Homes" takes just one hour to watch. To make that one-hour of television takes weeks, and sometimes months, to complete. From the scouting, planning, construction, filming and editing - what the audience gets to experience is just the tip of the iceberg. For every finished episode, there is 20 to 30 hours of footage that never gets used!For the first time ever, we show our viewers what they have never been able to see before- and maybe get to see Mike Holmes wearing something other than his trademark overalls.... Ok, maybe not.
 
Kitchen Knockout
The story itself was all too familiar- a botched kitchen renovation- The big difference here was the person who wrote the letter- former heavy weight boxing champion, George "Boom Boom" Chuvalo.The three-week kitchen renovation had gone into its third month. George and his wife Joanne had lost their patience, and the contractor finally made a hasty departure, leaving behind a badly laid out kitchen- featuring dangling pot lights, no working electrical, and no counter tops. During George's boxing career, he went the distance with Muhammad Ali, twice. Ali stated that, "...

Pane in the Glass
Jon and Candice seemed to be having problems with their window installation contractor. Proof that things were going badly came to the homeowners in the form of a DVD. A neighbor across the street documented the entire contracting mess from a home security camera. For the first time ever, Mike Holmes and his team get to witness a bad renovation- as it happens. If a picture speaks a thousands words, this footage says, "It's all coming down!"
 
Gut Ache
Jeremy had a total kitchen renovation- or so he thought. There were new cabinets, new counters, new appliances, new paint and a new tile floor- all the cosmetic items were brand new. Unfortunately, his Reno company only dealt with the finishing items- Everything below the surface was still the same old kitchen- Mike and the crew have to completely gut this kitchen to deal with all the problems that are bubbling under the brand-new, finished surface.
 
A Different Slant
Lee and Bailey bought a brand new townhouse two years ago. It came with many modern conveniences like a fridge that made ice cubes. One item they didn't ask for was an attic that made snow cones- enough snow that they had to shovel it into plastic bags, to prevent it from melting into their house. After the builder showed up to do several band-aid fixes, they called in Mike Holmes to get to the bottom of things, on the top of their house.
