TORONTO, April 15, 2021 – Scott’s Vacation House Rules returns for a second season of playful designs, challenges, and surprises on Sunday, May 16 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV Canada. In the Corus Studios Original series, real estate expert and contractor Scott McGillivray teaches homeowners how to make smart investments and renovation decisions that turn uninspired cottage properties into profitable vacation rentals. The brand new season is enhanced with an array of integrations from series sponsors CIBC, BEHR®, Pollard, ROCKWOOL, and Lowe’s, providing remarkable transformations and tips.
Using years of real estate investing and renovation experience, Scott and his design partner, Debra Salmoni, unlock the rental potential of even the most tired, dated, and rundown spaces and transform them into unique and valuable vacation hotspots. Scott’s Vacation House Rules paves the ultimate road map for renovation and rental success by following a set of simple rules including doing thorough research, picking and sticking to a design style, and investing some sweat equity. This time around, viewers see Scott creating a family-friendly cottage with a fun game space, a five-star winter retreat, a breathtaking beach house, and more. This all-new season proves that dream escapes don’t require international travel, they are awaiting guests in Canada’s backyard – and turning a profit for their owners.
