HGTV’s Karl Champley Talks Home Remodeling

A LITTLE BIT OF LIGHT SNOW STILL FALLING IN MINNEAPOLIS GIVE IT ANOTHER HOUR OR TWO AND THEN IT WILL BE OUT

LOOK AT THAT THE HOME AND REMODELING SHOW IS UNDERWAY AT US BANK STADIUM IT WILL BE THE PERFECT STOP IF YOU HAVE BEEN PUTTING OFF SOME PROJECTS AROUND THE HOUSE

OR IF YOU ARE A DAYDREAMER CARL CHAMBLEE JOINS US TODAY HE IS AN HGTV SHOW HOST AND WINNER OF ELLEN'S DESIGN CHALLENGE THANKS FOR BEING WITH US YOU WILL BE AT THE HOME AND REMODELING SHOW ALL DAY TODAY

AND TOMORROW AS WELL AND YOU WILL BE OFFERING PEOPLE TIPS? TIPS AND GOLD NUGGETS HOW IS THE BEST WAY TO START? THE FIRST THING IN THIS WEATHER IS TO CLEAR THE CLUTTER OUT OF THE HOUSE BECAUSE WE HAVE SO MUCH STUFF WE OFTEN THINK, WE DON'T OWN IT, IT TENDS TO WEAR US DOWN AFTER A WHILE

SO I THINK WITH THE WEATHER YOU GUYS ARE EXPERIENCING NOW, JUST TRY TO GET INTO THE HOUSE AND GARAGE AND CLEARING OUT THINGS THAT YOU DON'T REALLY NEED THIS SHOW THAT'S GOING ON NOW, I IMAGINE IT WOULD BE HARD FOR PEOPLE TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE BUT IT IS CERTAINLY WORTH DOING SO BECAUSE YOU GET EXCITED ABOUT SPRING IN THE NEW YEAR AND ALL OF THE DIFFERENT THINGS YOU CAN DO TO GET THE HOUSE YOU NEED FIGURE OUT WHAT YOUR STYLE IS COMPARED TO WHAT SOME OF THE LATEST TRENDS ARE TAKE SOME PICTURES, MAYBE GET SOME IDEAS

ABSOLUTELY THERE ARE SOME GREAT VENDORS AS WELL AND YOU CAN SEE ALL OF THE GREAT PRODUCTS ON THE MARKET CAN THIS HELP WITH INSPIRATION? ABSOLUTELY IT'S NOT THE GARDEN SHOW, YOU GOT ANOTHER HOME AND GARDEN SHOW COMING UP IN MARCH BUT THERE ARE SOME OUTDOOR VENDORS AS WELL

AND AGAIN, IT'S JUST GETTING PEOPLE EXCITED ABOUT THE KITCHEN, THE BATH, AND ALL OF THE THINGS THEY CAN DO TO THEIR OWN HOME ONE OF THE JOBS I DID LAST YEAR WITH THE NATIONAL KITCHEN AND BAR ASSOCIATION IS TO TRAVEL THE WORLD AND SEE THE DIFFERENT TRENDS IN DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE WORLD DO YOU KNOW MY FAVORITE TREND? TELL US, PLEASE FORGET MAKING YOUR HOME SUITABLE FOR SOMEONE THAT MAY PURCHASE IT IN 5 TO 10 YEARS JUST MAKE IT TO SUIT YOURSELVES

BECAUSE THE WAY REAL ESTATE IS GOING NOW, IF YOU RENOVATE THE HOME 50% OF THE WAY YOU LIKE IT, AND 50% OF THE WAY IT'S GOING TO SELL WELL, IT THEY ARE CUTTING IT ANYWAY TAKE THE HOUSE SUIT YOURSELVES IT'S A WHOLE DIFFERENT WAY TO THINK ABOUT IT YOU OBVIOUSLY HAVE EXPERIENCE IN THIS TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ELLEN'S DESIGN CHALLENGE

IT WAS A LOT OF FUN IT WAS BRUTAL IT WAS REAL LIKE A LOT OF HOME SHOWS, IT'S LIKE, WE'VE ONLY GOT A FEW HOURS TO DO THIS THAT'S NOT THE CASE

YOU'VE GOT ANOTHER 15 HOURS OFFSET TO BUILD IT ON THIS PARTICULAR SHOW, IF WE SAID WE HAD EIGHT HOURS, GUESS WHAT? WE HAD EIGHT HOURS AND NOT AN EXTRA SECOND WE HAD TO DESIGN WITH THE DESIGNERS AND BUILD SOMETHING WITHIN THAT TIME AND WE DID NOT HAVE A SECOND TO SPARE SO, IT WAS QUITE NERVE-RACKING BECAUSE YOU KNOW, EVERYBODY LIKES TO SEE TRAUMA ON THESE SHOWS AND WE JUST WANTED SOMETHING THAT WAS NOT GOING TO FALL APART

BUT, TO ALL OF THE DESIGNERS AND GREAT CARPENTERS, THERE ARE SOME BEAUTIFUL PIECES THAT WERE BUILT YOU CAME IN ON BUDGET AND ON TIME WHICH IS ALWAYS A PLUS, RIGHT? YES WHEN ALL OF THE CONTRACTORS DOING A REMODEL, TRY TO DO THAT HOW DO YOU DO THAT? JUST DIVE RIGHT IN? FORTUNATELY, WE WORKED WITH A WONDERFUL DESIGNER WE DOVE RIGHT IN

THAT'S WHAT WE HAD TO DO THEY GAVE US A LITTLE BIT OF ADVICE WE TOOK SOMETHING FROM A CLOTHING RANGE THEY GAVE US THREE IMPORTANT FEATURES IT HAD TO BE A PIECE OF FURNITURE THAT WAS FLOATING

IT HAD TO BE MULTIFUNCTIONAL THAT SORT OF THING THAT GOT THE BRAIN WAVES STARTED AND THEN WE HAD TO KNOCK SOMETHING OUT IN 15 TO 20 MINUTES WILL PEOPLE HAVE A CHANCE TO MEET YOU AND TALK WITH YOU COMING UP TOMORROW? YES YOU CAN ASK ALL OF THOSE QUESTIONS AT THE MINNEAPOLIS HOME AND REMODELING SHOW AT U
