Restoration expert and HGTV/DIY favorite Jeff Devlin returns to talk about “How to Renovate Like a Pro,” all you need to know to have a successful remodel. A renowned historic home remodeler, Jeff specializes in antiquated properties on the verge of extinction, and his attention to craftsmanship and detail help to restore these properties to their original splendor.

Local couple Vanessa and Scott Oates with HGTV’s “Chesapeake Fix” will take the stage on Sunday, March 8. The Oates will talk about buying homes primarily on the Chesapeake Bay that nobody wants, renovating and selling them. They will be joined by landscape designers Bryan and Kevin Ramsey of Bryan Ramsey Designs. The Ramsey twins also have a show, “Backyard Staycation.” that follows the brothers as they transform boring backyards into beautiful destinations. This program runs on The Design Network.
