CELEBRITY GUESTS

Tom Silva, Star of PBS' "This Old House" - Appearing On The Celebrity Stage 1p & 3p Saturday

As a proud member of America’s favorite home improvement team since 1986, general contractor Tom Silva has provided years of expert advice to home enthusiasts across the country on This Old House. He also brings his endless expertise to This Old House’s sister show, Ask This Old House.

Tom says, “Each job is unique and different, which is just what I like. Besides loving my work, I’ve made good friends with the entire crew of This Old House, and it’s been a rewarding experience.” Tom has contributed to Complete Remodeling and Complete Landscaping, published by This Old House Books in conjunction with Sunset Books in 2004, and the Homeowner’s Manual, published by This Old House Books in 2000. He is on the editorial board of This Old House magazine, published by This Old House Ventures, Inc., where his work and expert advice are featured regularly.

Renovating houses since he was a child, Tom’s first major project, working alongside his dad and brother, was installing a basement fallout shelter underneath their 1787 Colonial in Lexington, Massachusetts. After digging out the 20x40x12-foot hole under the house, by hand, and hauling away all the boulders, they framed it and finished it off. “It took us two years, and I felt such pride in what we had accomplished that I knew I wanted to do this for a living,” says Tom.

Silva Brothers Construction, made up of Tom, his father, and brother Richard, built the original set for the WGBH-TV Boston production The Victory Garden in the parking lot of WGBH. Russell Morash, the creator of This Old House, discovered the Silva crew while they were conducting a major restoration on an 1845 Greek Revival-style house. It was then that Russ named Tom and his crew the general contractors for the show.

Parents of a daughter and a son, Tom and his wife live in a 19th-century house he continues to renovate in a Boston suburb. He is a native of Massachusetts and a boating enthusiast.

Brian Santos, "The Wall Wizard"

Learn painting tips and tricks and how to paint from the pantry in a flash with seminars all weekend from Brian Santos.

Brian Santos, a fourth generation painting contractor and author of best-selling how-to books, uses “edutaining” demonstrations in his television appearances and how-to’s for industry giants like Sherwin-Williams, Imperial Wall coverings, Home Depot and Lowe’s, and at home and garden shows throughout the world to create wall magic whether it be with paint, paper, or fabric.

Over a touring career of more than 25 years, Santos has developed a series of “Wizard Workshops” that educate and empower audiences with simple tips, tricks, and techniques to help them tackle projects around the house with confidence.

He has given in excess of 5,000 Wall Magic workshops to more than one million do-it-yourselfers all over the world! Brian has also shared his expertise on national TV, including Good Morning America, Today, and HGTV’s Smart Solutions, as well as on TLC and the Discovery Channel.

Growing up and working in the San Francisco Bay area, Brian’s past clients include former San Francisco 49ers’ quarterback Joe Montana, actress Doris Day, and Star Wars creator George Lucas.
