Having such a childhood was what taught him how important it is to “do things right the first time.” He often credits his father for inspiring him from an early age to dive headfirst into craftsmanship. But he is the inspiration behind what I do for sure.
Growing up in a blue collar working class family, Holmes describes his childhood as poor but content. Sometimes I get the feeling I talk about him too much.
His several of TV shows are related to the home renovations and maintenance and also features as a judge in the TV show Handyman Superstar, featured by HGTV.
He has indeed found a way to reach to people with his talents.
Going back to the start of his career, he started learning the art of house renovation from his father; he first started out with 13 people at the age of 19, and two years later founded his company. He was dissatisfied with the way house renovations were done around his place, and he felt an urge to change and challenge the traditional way.
So with a new motivation, he founded The Holmes Foundation.
