SHERRY'S STORY

Sherry’s Activities

Contractor, TV Host & Passionate DIYer!

Sherry Holmes grew up watching, working, and playing with her dad, Mike Holmes. As early as 16-years-old she began working behind-the-scenes of Mike’s breakout series, Holmes on Homes®. In 2008, Sherry decided to strap on her own tool belt and traveled to New Orleans to help build a hurricane- and flood-resistant home for a victim of Hurricane Katrina, in Holmes in New Orleans.

Since then, she has been a permanent member of Mike’s Make it Right crew, first on Holmes Inspection, then on Holmes Makes It Right,
and now on Holmes: Next Generation, on DIY Network. Fans can also see Sherry alongside her brother Mike Jr. and dad Mike Holmes in the latest season of Holmes and Holmes on DIY Network and the new Canadian series Holmes 911 on CTV Life. Up next, Sherry joins the cast of HGTV’s Home to Win.

Holmes Family Effect, for CTV, has just wrapped and will air in 2021. It’s a family affair as Sherry, Micheal, and Mike Holmes, help young people whose mission is to make a difference and bring positive change in the lives of people and their community.

“If you’re thinking about getting into the trades, go for it! If it’s your passion learn as much as you can. It might be harder than you think to make your mark, but I promise you it will be worth it. It just might change your life”

As a big supporter of youth who wants to get into the trades, Sherry continues the family support to Skills Canada and World Skills. She also mentors young women through Conestoga College’s Jill of All Trades and acts as an Ambassador for Habitat for Humanity’s Annual Women Build Event, a program that calls on women to help build stronger, safer communities.

Through public speaking, media appearances and her social media influence, Sherry continues to change the face of Canada’s skilled trades workforce, demonstrating that women can bring an entirely new dimension to the construction industry that makes it fundamentally stronger from the ground up.

If you could Reno one room in your house RIGHT NOW, what would it be? The washroom, kitchen, office, family room, or even the backyard? I’d probably pick my gym space or my backyard. I’ve always wanted to put in a small plunge pool and make it more or of an outdoor oasis (Still trying to convince Blake)

When starting any kind of renovation, my biggest tip is to PLAN IT OUT first! Don’t just jump in without planning it through properly (trust me, I’ve done it).
The more time you give yourself to organize, make decisions and plan ahead; the more you can control cost, work schedule and keep yourself happy!

If you’re hiring in a contractor, make sure you check all of their references, sort out a payment schedule, have a contract, and establish proper communication!
If you’re planning on doing the work yourself; be realistic with your timelines, cost and cleanup 😅 - I have done work around my house, and it’s the LAST thing I actually wanted to do after work... So the Reno lasted MUCH longer than I planned and wanted it to 🤷🏼‍♀️

There's practically an unlimited number of choices you could use for your kitchen backsplash - but I've cut it down to 25 of my favourites.

Check it out and let me know which one your favourite is!

One of the houses we renovated in #HolmesAndHolmes included a bathroom reno. The contractor had created a big mess. I felt so bad for the family. They interviewed 3 contractors and picked the one that came with a referral. He left them with a disaster.
