Anyone Watch Profressional Grade on DIY?

DH and I started watching this show and it's pretty cool.  The host is a licensed contractor and he goes to people's homes who are doing renovations and does an initial visit, comes up with the cost and time it would take him to do it, and then comes back during their reno to check on their work and then at the end of the "time" that he would take, he comes back, reviews their work and if they come under what he would have charged, he gives the homeowners the difference between his estimate and their actual cost.


Pretty cool, I think.

I've caught 2 episodes of this!  It is pretty amazing when you see a fairly amature couple make $$$ on their renos.  I saw one where the couple had already flipped a dozen houses together, so I kind of thought that was unfair, but meh.  It's cool to see all the DIY people do!

It was very interesting for me to see how much contractors charge.  DH and I are extremely lucky that his uncle does this for a living, especially with our upcoming kitchen project. : )
