PJ & Thomas McKay, from HGTV's Down to the Studs
Appearing Saturday, Feb. 24
1pm on the Simple Bath Home Stage
PJ & Thomas McKay, hosts of HGTV’s “Down to the Studs”, have been in the home renovation business for over 10 years in the Chattanooga, TN area. Their business took off when they started their Instagram account The Property Lovers, where they document all of their renovation and design projects. From there, they’ve expanded their social media empire to Facebook, Twitter, their website PJandThomas.com, and YouTube. On YouTube they have their reality-based digital series Designing with the Property Lovers, where they take you along with them on their various renovation projects. PJ and Thomas have had guest appearances on nationally syndicated talk shows where they have done surprise makeovers and given DIY and home design tips. PJ, a licensed realtor with a degree in construction management, primarily deals with the construction side of things while Thomas oversees the design aspect, though at the end of the day they make all business decisions together as a team.
At the Columbus Dispatch Home Show they will be taking you behind the scenes of their HGTV show and discussing the importance of having a social media presence. They will also show you the do’s and don’ts of renovating, as well as tips on how to renovate and design your home on a budget.
