Bryan & Sarah Baeumler
Bryan doesn’t believe he’s put in an honest day’s work unless he gets his hands dirty. A natural-born teacher, the Gemini-award winning host has been educating and entertaining viewers across Canada and the US since 2007 on the hit shows Disaster DIY, Canada’s Handyman Challenge, Leave it to Bryan and House of Bryan. Bryan’s quick wit and easy-going personality have made him a huge hit with viewers on all of his home renovation shows.
A few kids and number of hit TV shows later, Bryan continues to tackle home renovation projects, be the spokesperson for numerous products and expand his growing businesses to include Baeumler Approved and Baeumler Custom Cabinetry. Currently filming Bryan Inc. with wife Sarah, viewers will follow the couple on their journey as they flip two investment properties while balancing their busy home lives together.
In 2009, Sarah Baeumler joined husband Bryan on television as audiences watched the Baeumler’s create a custom 3,500 square foot home for their growing family in House of Bryan. Showcases of Sarah's keen sense of style and eye for luxury and practicality were exhibited throughout the show. Despite her love for the dance studio and managing her own business, she decided it was time to hang up her ballet slippers and help Bryan run their expanding business empire.
She was one of 20 network personalities to star on HGTV’s Home to Win as well as filming a new series, Bryan Inc., alongside her husband. Her passion for design and expertise in business enable Sarah to build a lifestyle brand that influences many across Canada. Her strong presence online continues to grow with her new website, sarahbaeumler.com and subscription box service, Sarah Delivered.
