DIY Network TV host Chris Grundy joined me recently to discuss the new groundbreaking multimedia experience, “Blog Cabin”!
Candace Rose: Can you tell us about the new groundbreaking multimedia experience “Blog Cabin”?
Chris Grundy: Blog Cabin, first of all, is a lot of fun on top of fun! It’s all about teamwork. 6 different hosts come to Mid Coastal Maine and bring their expertise, humor, energy, creativity, and they bring the sexy back! A Victorian Cape Farmhouse sitting on 16 acres is completely gutted, however everything that could be reused was moved to the barn across the street. The DIY hosts had their pic of what they wanted to use. Also, Maine provides plenty of antiques as well. Blog Cabin has been transformed from a multi-family home with a lot of small rooms and minimal windows to a spacious coastal getaway that has completely opened up, and now takes advantage of the awesome views Maine has to offer.
Candace Rose: How will the cabin be renovated?
Chris Grundy: Blog Cabin used to be a farmhouse. Rooms were small because they only wanted to heat a little bit of it. Little concern was given to the view so there weren’t a lot of windows either. It’s 128 years old so the technology we have today really doesn’t compare. We have opened this house up, brought in up to date gadgets, TVs, music, air conditioning, and a whole lot more while still keeping that old farmhouse feel throughout. It’s just beautiful!
Candace Rose: Do you have any additional tips or information you’d like to share?
Chris Grundy: I want to tell you about Maine a little bit. The community fully welcomed us and showed us some of their most beautiful parts. From the lighthouses on the coast to the great little diners to the local pubs (That would open up just because we were there) they really gave and gave and gave. The seafood was everywhere and it was all good. On my days off I would take some time to go fishing and perfect strangers would point out their favorite spots and what was the best bait. Sometimes we would look out the windows of the Blog Cabin and we would see nature run right on by. I saw deer, wild turkeys, fox, and roosters. I’m hoping to see a Moose very soon.
Candace Rose: Where can we go for more information?
