Kristin Wells, HGTV Smart Fix profile, SmartFix host

From the HGTV website, Smart Fix host, Kristin Wells profile:

"Kristin Wells, host and contractor on HGTV's Smart Fix, was introduced to the world of carpentry at a young age. Her father’s knack for fixing things and watching HGTV programming piqued her interest in home layout and design. Kristin soon began working with local builders to get hands-on experience with home repairs and renovations. Eager to put her building and design skills to use, Kristin formed a construction company in 2003 where she worked with clients on all aspects of home remodeling.

With an expertise in several areas of construction and design — such as framing, drywall and tile work — Kristin is not afraid to get her hands dirty. Prior to joining HGTV’s Smart Fix, Kristin was featured in another television series, Homemakers, in which she renovated a 100-year-old home. "

Smart Fix, Kristin Wells hosts HGTV remodeling show for 2009 season

January 26, 2008

Kristin Wells, former cohost of “HomeMakers”, an all female renovation show that was on Turner South, has started filming a new renovation show for HGTV. The show has begun filming in Charlotte NC and will begin airing on HGTV within the year. The new show is geared to do it yourselfers and will include a lot of do it yourself participation. Each show will have a budget of $ 3,000 and must be a project that can be completed in a weekend.

Kristin, who grew up in Greensboro NC, became interested in home repairs and renovations when she was living in Portland OR. While living there, she began working on the side with
a local contractor to learn remodeling skills. However, the seeds may have been planted by Kristin watching her dad do a renovation of their home when she was 3 years old. There is a picture of Kristin leaning against a ladder and holding a hammer. Also, her great grandfather felled the trees, milled the lumber and built his own house.

Kristin has expertise in many areas of construction as well as having a knack for design. She does framing, drywall, and lots of tile work and is not afraid to get her hands dirty. She was also coowner of a Charlotte renovation company several years ago and did incredible transformations on high end homes in the Charlotte area. She has also cohosted a special on HGTV.
