We all appreciate living in New England for it’s historic charm. But, beautiful old homes certainly have their challenges. My home is 113 years old and it needs “saving” on a regular basis. It’s worth it, though. The Home and Garden TV network has made a name for itself, and a hugely popular business, by fixing and renovating homes all over the country. Well, get ready New England, because another television program is going to be based here. If you’ve got an “oddball house”… a Massachusetts couple to the rescue in a new HGTV show!

According to Boston Magazine, Stoughton, Mass. husband and wife, Mike and Denese Butler will be fixing up homes around southern Massachusetts suburbs. If you have those “charming quirks” that present daily challenges, this show is for you. Whether it’s a misplaced staircase, rooms you have to walk through to get to a bathroom or a disfunctional kitchen, the Butlers can help.

The new HGTV series is called Fix My Frankenhouse. It premieres this Sunday, April 23 at 9:00pm. Mike and Denese Butler, along with a Stoughton-based renovation and design team, will fix the weirdness. They will transorm the oddball designs and turn your Frankenhouse into a fabulous house. The article says that “Mike will handle the construction side of things while Denese will use custom finishes to style their completed projects.”

This isn’t the only HGTV set in New England. Take a look below at some other popular shows from the area.
