New York [Oct. 12, 2020] Home renovator Tamara Day gives more crumbling Kansas City estate homes massive overhauls and stunning style in six new one-hour episodes of HGTV’s Bargain Mansions, premiering Monday, Nov. 9, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. More than 26 million viewers have watched this season of the popular series, in which the busy mother of four, expert designer and restoration enthusiast buys dilapidated manors surprisingly cheap and uses budget-conscious design to turn them into forever homes for families. Working alongside her father and mentor, Ward Schraeder, Tamara takes care to keep the homes’ historic features and unique architectural charm intact, while she modernizes layouts and adds luxe amenities to attract top dollar from buyers. The fresh renos include a dark and dated 1960s Colonial whose untouched façade gets a bright transformation and the complete rebuild of a 1940s brick ranch-style house to add a second story and a finished basement with a media room. In addition, the episodes spotlight Tamara taking on personal projects in her own Kansas home, including updates to the main bathroom and backyard deck.
“Every time I find one of these big, old houses in my hometown, I feel like I’ve hit the jackpot,” said Tamara. “They are true diamonds in the rough with so much potential and bringing them back to life for new families to love is the best job in the world.”
