I was the architectural consultant for this new home-renovation reality program now showing on the fyi channel. Full episodes can be seen online here. Although I wasn't asked to provide any design ideas (that would be unfair!), I did get the chance to practice my construction and structural engineering expertise with home renovations. It was my responsibility to provide the contestants with a measured base plan of the houses and then make sure they didn't take out any structural walls.
It was interesting to see how the program is directed and how many people are involved behind the scenes. I'm currently working on the new Lachey's Bar in Over the Rhine which will also be featured on a reality TV program, so it's a lot easier to make the mental leap from what is being filmed onsite to what will ultimately be edited into a watchable episode.
