New York [Oct. 24, 2018] Kansas City’s crumbling manors get massive makeovers from home renovator Tamara Day in the new season of DIY Network’s Bargain Mansions. Premiering Wednesday, Nov. 28, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, the 14-episode season follows Tamara, a busy mother of four, as she snags unbelievable deals on large downtrodden properties and puts her passion for restoration to work. Throughout the season, Tamara preserves the historic charm and unique architectural features of each dwelling, such as antique light fixtures, clawfoot tubs and vintage doors with original hardware. She later incorporates modern layouts and luxurious amenities to attract top dollar from the right buyer.
“Kansas City is full of inexpensive big old mansions in a decrepit state that scare away most buyers, but these are the homes I want the most,” said Tamara. “With lots of time and TLC, I can turn the properties into spacious, stylish homes that are perfect for today’s families.”
The premiere episode finds Tamara at a gutted 1930s property with a choppy layout and awkward exterior. Working alongside her father and mentor, Ward, she creates a cozy living room that flows into a gorgeous kitchen boasting a cathedral ceiling accented by cedar wood beams. To add value to the property, Tamara converts the unfinished basement into a functional bonus space, and, to boost the curb appeal, she builds dramatic wood corbels to flank the new front door and encloses a side porch with retractable screens.
