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 travelled 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. Up next, Sherry will be joining the cast of HGTV’s hit show Home to Win later this year.

“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 for youth who want 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 Build A Dream, 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.

37 weeks pregnant
Fully Cooked Baby!

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

We made it!
Baby girl has grown in size, which we’re thrilled about! She was a little too small for most of the pregnancy, but is now in the 49th percentile!
Our estimated due date is April 15th. We’re almost there! Today, Baby is officially considered a full term baby, and can come out whenever she feels like joining us.
Baby is around five pounds, and already moves ALL the time! Especially when Mom is trying to sleep. She’s already stubborn (as expected), and will rarely move when someone tries to feel her. She doesn’t like performing on demand 😹

I’m still trying to keep active, and visit our Job sites when I can, and when it’s safe. Things are getting a little more difficult to do; but worst case, Blake has to put my shoes on for me 😹

I’ll be posting her nursery reveal in April (name too), and putting together a blog and post to try to help out my pregnant ladies, moms and parents
I spent SO long researching the best products for both Baby and myself - for pregnancy, postpartum, and everything my Girl will need. I can’t wait to share my favourite products with you 🤗

Stay tuned! 🤰🏼😙

Love this idea of an Off the Grid office by Effect Home Builders Ltd. I have solar panels on my house and encourage homeowners to look into the technology.
Of course this office building in Edmonton has a lot more features that allows it to be off the grid. Great job! 👍

This home-turned office building in Edmonton generates its own heat and power. Darcy Ropchan has the details.

I used to think it would be difficult for me to have the “traditional” family life while working in construction with the long hours and physical requirements. I think I’ll be just fine though 🙂
Less than a month to go now!

Let's fill that trade shortage!
Currently women make up just 4.7% of trades - BCBC working to improve #construction workplace culture, retain more women with pilot program
