Jonathan Knight Farmhouse Fixer
HGTV has given a series of greenlights to Farmhouse Fixer, featuring Jonathan Knight. The show is set to premiere on Wednesday, March 3 at 9 pm ET/PT on HGTV. The series has six episodes and will feature Knight, who has renovated more than 200 houses over the past 27 years, as he carefully preserves the original craftsmanship and historic charm of classic homes while he also modernizes layouts, updates interiors, and gives his clients endless reasons to cheer.
“Restoring the American farmhouse is not just a hobby for me—it’s my passion, my obsession, and I’ve been doing it for more than 25 years,” said Knight. “It’s so easy to just go knock down an old house. It’s way harder to renovate them so that families can enjoy them for years to come. That’s the reason this work is so worth it.”
To kick off the season, Jonathan will give new life to a 1700s New Hampshire farmhouse with help from his designer and friend, Kristina Crestin. To stabilize the property, he must remove a sinking addition on the home but, on the plus side, Jonathan will convert a backyard tool shed into a stunning potting bench and chicken coop. In future episodes, 02 Jonathan will complete custom renovations for additional old homes, including creating an enviable chef’s kitchen and a built-in seating area for a large dining room.
