• Chris shares one of the last things he had to do for the downstairs bathroom, which he broke while installing.
• More on cabin hunting, and things that Chris & Julia have each been looking for.
• Chris & Julia talk about the very first home they put an offer on, and how terrible of an idea it was.
Interview: Drew & Jonathan Scott – The Property Brothers
Julia kicks this interview off with a bang when she sings the entire Double Mint Gum theme song for Drew & Jonathan. They talk about their new book, It Takes Two: Our Story, and give some of the reasons they decided to write a tell-all memoir. They also share some obscure facts about their lives and how they got into real estate.
Drew and Jonathan talk about the only episode of Property Brothers that they began to film but cancelled and never aired, as well as give some advice to DIYers on how to approach renovations to make sure they aren’t making nightmares for themselves or future owners, or devaluing their property.
Can’t Get You Outta My Mind
Julia: Julia talks about a post made by her friend, Gwen, who writes The Makerista blog. The post was in relation to choosing a bottle of olive oil that looks good in your home as opposed to one with perhaps a purple label. While the comment drew some negative backlash, Julia explains why she stands with Gwen on this and why it matters. She also shares a soap dispenser she recently purchased as an example.
Preston: Preston has been building a deck on his home for the past couple weeks, and he talks all about his new love: the star-head screw. We’ve all had that experience where we go to take a screw out of something and it’s a start head and we don’t have the right bit and it drives us mad. But Preston makes the case for getting the bit set, and making the switch.
Chris: Chris uses his platform this week to have a conversation about a Facebook post he’s been nursing for the past week or so. While the post is unlikely to offer any lasting value to anyone, it stills makes for entertaining conversation.
