The show will be your opportunity to meet experts throughout the Show including Ty Pennington of the 2-time Emmy Award Winning, ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and the groundbreaking TLC’s Trading Spaces.  Internationally-known Carpenter, Designer, TV Host, and Author, Ty will share home improvement and behind the scene stories as well as answers to your questions at this year’s Show. Currently, Ty is extremely busy returning to Trading Spaces after a 10-year hiatus, previously as a carpenter, and now as a designer. The smash hit, Rock the Block, hosted by Ty Pennington, returns to HGTV for a fourth season. The new season premieres March 2023. Ty is also reuniting with design rivals Taniya Nayak, Restaurant Impossible and Alison Victoria, Windy City Rehab, for another round of Battle on the Beach which HGTV has renewed for a second season.

Pennington’s creativity, dexterity, and contagious charisma helped usher in an international wave of interest and activity in home remodeling and restoration.

Pennington has used his talent and celebrity to bring communities together in projects that make people’s lives better such as the revitalization of public parks and facilities and the conversion of a former prison into a soup kitchen, homeless shelter, and halfway house.

TV personality and hardworking carpenter, Ty Pennington catapulted the home renovation industry into expansion, showcasing daring and creative works on Trading Spaces and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. As he became a heavyweight in the entertainment industry, Pennington used his celebrity status to focus on projects that brought communities together and helped those in need.

The long-time host of ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Pennington spent 10 years changing the lives of deserving home owners through his artistic eye, skilled dexterity, and natural talent for making others feel comfortable. After helping restore and rebuild over 200 homes during 9 seasons, he secured a contract for the limited series, Ty’s Great British Adventure, in which he collaborated with British municipalities to revitalize parts of their towns such as run-down parks and pools. Off camera, he’s aided in projects like mortgage lender, Guaranteed Rate’s Ultimate Neighborhood Give Back Challenge, in which he supported a North Carolina community’s effort to convert an old prison into a neighborhood soup kitchen and homeless shelter.

Pennington claims it took him over two decades to figure out how to channel his abilities into the career he wanted. Along the way he worked in landscaping, construction, and modeling, which led him to reside in Japan, Thailand, Italy, Canada, and Germany.

Pennington holds an Honorary PhD from the Savannah College of Art and Design. He can be seen on TLC’s Trading Spaces reboot which has been driven by a loyal and vocal fan base.
