Atlanta native Chip Wade has building in his blood. Coming from a long line of experienced carpenters and woodcraftsmen, Chip began working with his father at an early age – and over the years developed an interest in carpentry, landscaping and renovation. As the contractor and master carpenter on HGTV’s Curb Appeal: The Block, Chip explains and demonstrates the tools and processes best suited for exterior renovation, landscaping and construction. Chip also appears as the carpenter on HGTV's Designed to Sell.

After graduating with a degree in mechanical engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology, Chip moved on to earn his certification in residential construction. He soon developed a passion for construction as he became proficient in both the design and execution of large-scale remodels.

Chip is the owner of WadeBuilt LLC, a design and construction firm, and resides in Atlanta with his wife, Pauli, and son Mac.
