Preservationist Brett Waterman brings new life to historic homes on DIY Network’s Restored. Although he was raised in Southern California, Brett spent a lot of time on his family’s farm in Oklahoma learning restoration skills from his father and grandfather. Later, he studied political science and history at UCLA in Los Angeles. Brett says he has a deep appreciation for architecture and landscape and prefers to take a holistic approach to restoration. On Restored, Brett focuses on homes with fascinating stories and unrealized potential hidden beneath neglect, bad renovations and ugly additions.
