HGTV Host & Owner, Baeumler Quality Construction
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. Learning valuable tricks of the trade from his father, a meticulous aircraft engineer, Bryan spent his childhood summers building his family’s cottage from the ground up. After earning a dual degree in Political Science and Business, Bryan was headed towards a career of practicing law. Realizing he’d rather be renovating than being chained to a desk, his innate passion for building took over and he traded in his tie for a tool belt and founded Baeumler Quality Construction. 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.

Many of us were first introduced to Sarah Baeumler when she appeared alongside husband Bryan on the HGTV series, House of Bryan; however, Sarah has been paving her own path to success years before tool belts and camera crews became part of her life. After studying at The University of Western Ontario, Sarah gained her teaching qualifications and in 2006 decided to open her own classical dance school, Balletomane Performance Arts, in Oakville, Ontario. In 2009, Sarah joined 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. Sarah continues to expand her career both as a TV personality and entrepreneur. 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
