In each hour episode of Restored, preservationist Brett Waterman transforms one character filled house for a couple or family who owns it. Brett focuses on homes with fascinating stories and unrealized potential hidden beneath neglect, bad renovations and ugly additions.
Brett Waterman's job might be described as historic house flipper. His goal is to restore 100-year-old properties of all architectural styles -- including Craftsman, Victorian, Spanish and mid-century modern -- to their original intentions. The character-filled homes took a wrong stylistic turn thanks to bad renovations or unsightly additions, and "Restored" sees Brett reveal the unrealized potential hidden beneath the neglect. "The character of these old homes just needs to be rediscovered," he says. "An older home is not supposed to look brand new but should look beautifully maintained."
