Rustic Rehab (HGTV) – Premieres 16th August
Based in Paradise, California, this is renovation show that follows the married team of David and Chenoa Rivera as they buy, renovate and sell a property.
Kicking off with the pair heading to a new property they’ve purchased, David and Chenoa go through the house highlighting what needs to be done, while pricing up the cost. Then at the end of the survey work out the totals, how much they could sell it for and the estimate cost.
The show then moves on the duo starting the renovation with their construction team, and as they go through the build discover hidden problems that add to the bill. And as well as the problems occurred, shows the pair changing their plan mid-build to get the rooms in the best shape for a quick sell.
At the end of the renovation David and Chenoa go through the pricing, highlighting how much over budget they went and working out a new price where they can come out with a decent profit. Then the couple show prospective buyers around the property, where they show off how the house now looks compared to how it was at the beginning. And after it finishes off by showing the final costs and how much they finally sold the house for.
The show is similar to other renovation programmes such as Rustic Renovations, with it keeping to the tried and tested format. Overall it does what you expect, and if you enjoy these types of show then it’s more of the same.
