Home Improvement Expert Comes To Coast

Television's traveling home improvement show made a stop on the Mississippi Gulf Coast Wednesday.

Ron Hazelton , ABC's home improvement editor and host of the nationally televised home improvement show "HouseCalls," brought his mobile workshop to a home in Bay St. Louis. Hazelton and his crew spent the day shooting a segment for an up coming episode of "HouseCalls."

Hazelton will help the Favre's build a unique cover for their courtyard.

"It's very sunny here, and these folks have got a really nice patio. Sometimes they want sun, and sometimes they don't want sun, so what we're going to build is a retractable patio cover," Hazelton said.

More than 400 people from South Mississippi responded to the show's offer to make a home improvement. But only six homes from Alabama to Louisiana were selected.

"I think it's phenomenal," Bay St. Louis home owner Marsha Favre said. "I can't believe I was selected."

Thursday, we'll take a look at the finished product and find out why the homes in our area were chosen.
