Canada’s Handyman Challenge – Behind the Scenes

Did you watch the finale of Canada’s Handyman Challenge last week?
If not ,go watch it, then come back here. I’ve got some behind the scenes action of the finale episode.

Back in the fall HGTV invited me on set of Canada’s Handyman Challenge. I got to meet and interview the judges (see my post on that here) and I also got to tour the set during the final challenge. I couldn’t post any of my set pictures before, as that would be a bit of a spoiler. However, now that the show has aired I can share my sneak peek of the set.

I got to visit on lunchtime of day one of the finale build. The pallet houses were starting to go up. The set was in an old industrial factory, with red brick industrial buildings as the backdrop. Enjoy!

The finale projects were awesome. The amount of thought, skill and engineering in them was incredible. I thought this was one of the funnest seasons yet. The projects season wide were creative, and the contestants did a bang up job.  There can however be only one winner, and congrats Brent on the win!

What did you think of this season? Which was your favorite project?
