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.

A basement bathroom is a great addition to any home. Did you know that a full basement bathroom has the highest return on your investment compared to any other bathroom renovations in your home? It makes sense, a full basement bathroom is a great investment for an expanding family, entertaining overnight guests, or considering adding a rental unit.

I know that in my bathroom, space is an issue… making or finding space in a bathroom isn’t always easy, especially when it comes to the shower and tub area. One way to reclaim your shower zone is to install a shower niche.

Mudrooms are becoming a popular addition to any home for keeping busy households in order. Whether you have an existing mudroom that’s off the garage or a side entryway that you’d like to become a more functional space, the addition of storage is essential. The addition of cubbies for shoes, wall hooks for jackets, and catchall storage will help keep your mudroom and the rest of the house looking de-cluttered and clean. Here are some mudroom tips and design ideas you should consider.

On a cold winter’s morning, there’s nothing worse than hopping out of bed and feeling a cold floor on your bare feet. I know it makes me want to climb back into bed! When people think of warm, cozy floors, they wouldn’t ordinarily think of hard tile floors, instead, the first thing that might come to mind is a soft, plush carpet.

No space is wasted with this entryway mudroom. We installed tile floors at the entrance so that the homeowner wouldn’t be walking on hardwood (not great for those winter boots). The built-in shelving allows for décor pieces to be features. #holmesandholmes https://t.co/9CB7WTQ5uR
For all electrical work in Ontario, it's important to hire a Licensed Electrical Contractor to do the work and make sure that they have a 7-digit ECRA/ESA number on them. @homeandsafety #ESA #ElectricalSafety https://t.co/wLubnmFQJw
Over the yrs, I have seen a change in the trades, and the number of women involved grow. When I first started, I was 21 years old, and one of the few women I knew involved in construction. In fact, I never saw any women on sites. Was definitely daunting. #endskilledtradesstigma https://t.co/3cwjwWkuqz
