American Rehab Charleston



DIY
Series Premiere
Thursday, August 28, 2014 @ 11pm


Are you ready for some football?  I am.  But, Thursday is not just the kickoff of the college season on the gridiron; it’s also the series premiere of American Rehab and they’re starting the series in South Carolina with my current project just outside of Charleston in Summerville.  It's on the DIY network on Thursday @ 11pm in the middle of a block of Rehab Addict.  I was on TV once while I was standing in the front row of a college basketball game, but I'm not counting that because my mom didn't get to see it and everyone wants their mom to see them on TV.  Thursday is my day.  No spoilers here , but the transformation was dramatic plus the entire experience was amazing fun.     

Charleston’s oldest building, Pink House, dates back to 1712 (right there with Harvard’s Massachusetts Hall).  Okay, someone has an idea that it wasn’t really finished until 1745, but I don’t want to get hung up on a difference of 33 years to detract from my point.  Like Mass. Hall, Pink House is older than the country.  Wow!  Charleston reveres its old buildings and it's one of the major draws for people visiting our city year after year.  So because of that, I can’t think of a better place to start a new series about renovating old homes in America than The Holy City which undoubtedly loves its old buildings.

So tune into American Rehab tomorrow and watch me get started on the Country Victorian.

    1. We don't have a copy. However, if you google American Rehab Charleston, options will come up for you to watch it on-line as well as some trailers and clips of the intro. Also, I may it get re-aired in the future.

  7. I just found the show and love that you're local. Any way to list some of the places you get your material from, like the antiques, furniture, countertops (the recycled glass and shells in particular)? Thanks, and keep up the great and inspiring work!!
