This Saturday (January 4th, 2014), make sure to tune in to DIY, at 10pm/9C, for the first two episodes (back to back) of http://www.diynetwork.com/emev-runs-renovation/show/index.html. Rev Run is remodeling RUN’s House and getting a new Pedini kitchen, designed by Amir Ilin, from Kuche Cucina!
The home of Joseph Simmons — best known as Rev Run from the iconic rap group, Run DMC—will get a major transformation in the new DIY Network series “Rev Run’s Renovation,” premiering Jan. 4, at 10 p.m.
During the 10-episode series, the home’s remodel becomes a family affair as Rev Run, his wife, Justine, their kids Daniel (Diggy), Russell (Russy) and Miley, and a team of builders work together to completely renovate their 9,000 square foot New Jersey home.
Justine has grand plans to tap the budget to transform her outdated kitchen into a sleek, modern European-style space, while Run wants a mini indoor pool and spa.
“Rev Run is a legend in the music business, but he and his family are like any other first-time home remodelers,” explains Steven Lerner, senior vice president, programming and development, HGTV and DIY Network. “They’re dealing with noise, dust, the local zoning board — every homeowner who has undertaken a major remodel can relate.”
“Rev Run’s Renovation” also chronicles the design and construction of new bedrooms and custom bathrooms for the kids.
The series features Mr. and Mrs. Simmons’ as they tackle each stage of the renovation with a lot of grace and elbow grease to turn the dated property into the ultimate family dream home.
