The American landscape is dotted with natural relics of all shapes and sizes begging for rediscovery – from fallen trees and decrepit barns to abandoned railroad cars. Forgotten by time, concealed by the environment and engulfed by the landscape, these weathered remnants tell unique stories – but are often dismissed as trash. Enter Jay Chaikin, master reclaimer, restoration expert and visionary designer with a passion to bring people closer to the natural environment. In the all-new series Restoration Wild, Chaikin scours the countryside to reclaim abandoned items and transform them into livable, spectacular spaces, helping his clients to reconnect with nature.
Chaikin and his highly skilled Restoration Wild team are not only searching deep into the woodlands for the ruins of yesterday, they’re using them to create environments that look as if they were placed there by nature.
Join Chaikin and his team as they embark on a cross-country renovation road trip, bringing an eye for design and expert craftsmanship to places in need of a facelift.
