Kitchen Renovations

show description:
If home is where the heart is, then the kitchen is a home's soul. If you want to improve the look, style and function of your kitchen, but think the project is too complicated or expensive, DIY's Kitchen Renovations is for you.

From a simple redo to a complete remodel, host Paul Ryan covers each step in the process. No matter what style you have in mind, Kitchen Renovations takes the mystery out of design and layout, flooring, cabinets, counter tops, faucets, sinks, appliances and more. We'll inspire you to transform your own kitchen--and save thousands of dollars in the process!

about the host:
Paul Ryan has been in the construction industry since his teens. He began his career as a Carpenter-Inspector at Valleyfair Amusement park in Shakopee, Minnesota. Because the park was basically a small city, all aspects of home improvement were needed. Paul built everything from rides to structures. Paul was a lead Carpenter, which meant he was often sent to locations to troubleshoot problems and determine what needed to be done to fix the problem. In addition to carpentry, he is experienced in plumbing, fiberglass repair and other aspects of construction.

Paul does not consider himself an actor. He is a carpenter who happened to end up on TV. In the early 1990s, a company needed someone to host a video project who could talk about tools while using them. Paul was the perfect fit. Since that video, Paul has hosted four different television series, including "Weekend Handyman," and "Home Energy Savings," all on the DIY Network.

In addition to his television shows Paul is working on his first book, due out in November, 2006 and available at Barnes and Noble bookstores. The book is a step-by-step look at 11 kitchens featured on his show. The book includes photos, behind the scenes information and before and after shots of the kitchens. When he is not hosting Kitchen Renovations, Weekend Handyman, or Home Energy Savings on DIY Network, Paul keeps busy with his wife and two children.
