Life lessons with Bryan Baeumler The HGTV star finds new perspective outside his comfort zone Author of the article: Article content If you could have picked where to spend the 2020 lockdown, chances are a Caribbean island would have been high on the list. For Bryan and Sarah Baeumler, stars of HGTV’s Island of Bryan , it wasn’t so much a choice of where they wanted to be, but of where they needed to be.

Then suddenly a global pandemic changed everything. “Two weeks after opening, that’s when they shut international travel down,” Baeumler recalls during a telephone interview from his home in Florida, where they’re filming the show’s fourth season. Baeumler says they made the decision to stay based on the massive investment they had made on the island—not just financially, but in time and with people who had become their friends. If the resort renovation made for compelling reality TV, for the Baeumlers it was one real-life challenge after another rife with supply chain issues, logistical problems and tropical storms. “It was uphill the entire way,” he admits.

When Baeumler appears at the BC Home + Garden Show , he’ll talk home renovation, behind the scenes bits from the show, and some of the hard lessons learned along his career path. “I think our perspectives changed a lot over the course of living on the island and renovating down there as far as what’s really important,” he says. For homeowners contemplating a renovation, he wants them to think about where their money is best spent. Often, people spend money in the wrong places. He references his earlier show Leave it to Bryan as an example. “People would want a kitchen renovation while their roof was leaking or they had single-pane windows or no insulation in their attic,” he explains.

If there’s something that you want to do and try something bigger, my suggestion is do it.” Bryan Baeumler appears on the BC Home + Garden Show Main Stage on Friday, March 11, at 7 p.m. and Saturday, March 12, at 1 p.m. More On This Topic
