Mike Holmes Chats About Holmes In New Orleans

In this vintage clip from the year 2009, Mike Holmes chats with HGTV Canada about his work in New Orleans with the Make It Right Foundation. He talks about how the home he built for Gloria Guy was not only energy efficient, utilizing solar and geothermal energy, but also safe and virtually flood proof (assuming the levees don't break). He also speaks of the intense heat, and what it took to get used to the insane humidity. Mike explains what it was like to work with the engineer who designed the house, and how he helped to make changes in the design of the home. He also talks about what it was like to work with Brad Pitt and girlfriend Angelina Jolie.

(If Mike Holmes and Brad Pitt arm wrestled, who would win? I'm betting on Mike and those guns he smuggles underneath his shirt everywhere he goes. But I'm just a tad biased I guess.)
