Things I’ve Learned From Watching Property Brothers

(l-r) Drew Scott and Jonathan Scott

So I just got the hang of watching the Property Brothers. It is a show which features TWINS Drew and Jonathan Scott, Drew being the Real Estate Expert and Jonathan being the Contractor. Aside from those amazing renovations that they do, another reason why I watch this show is because they just look so good. ^_^
I’ve been watching reno and design shows even back home but this is my first time watching this show here. I’m also amazed about the things that I’ve learned.

  • When buying a house, having it checked by the inspector is recommended. That’s because they usually meet a big problem everytime a client does not choose this option. This is also good because the house hunters gets to be informed of the possible structural problems and other problems.
  • The older the house, the more chances in finding asbestos. Like there are times when they have to like pause for sometime because the asbestos should not be disturbed.
  • Open concept is an awesome concept. I have always wanted a house where there are lots of natural light and this is the answer! Open concept is basically a no-wall barrier between the kitchen and dining room and maybe a small railing or no wall at all up to the living room.
  • Expect the walls (that you want to take down for an open concept) are structural and if there’s a second floor, expect to add a beam. Structural means that it actually supports the structure of the house so bringing it down can affect the house. A beam kind of supports the roof of the house.
  • Find a good fixer upper. They can either make your home your dream home or the horror house.
  • No matter how much work he does, Jonathan’s hair never experiences a bad hair day. Like how does he do that? Hair stylist in between takes?
  • Jonathan always wear plaid and Drew is always on formal clothes.

I just love watching Property Brothers. Just try closing your eyes and listen to the twins’ voice, you’ll have a long time to figure out who’s speaking. You can identify them but maybe if you *really* know the difference in their voice.

I can’t wait for the new episodes of the Property Brothers.
