From a media release:


•Mike Holmes Hands Over the Reins in the One-Night Television Event Mike’s Ultimate Garage September 1st at 8pm ET/PT on HGTV Canada

Canada’s Most Trusted Contractor, Mike Holmes (Holmes on Homes and Holmes Makes It Right) trusts his son Mike Jr. to build his dream garage in Mike’s Ultimate Garage, premiering Monday, September 1st at 8pm ET/PT on HGTV Canada. This two-hour special follows the father and son duo through every tough lesson and hard-earned victory, as Mike Jr. learns there’s no blueprint when it comes to working with family.

Mike has envisioned his state-of-the-art man cave for years and is ready to make it a reality. With the foundation and block frame in place, Mike turns the jobsite over to Mike Jr., but that doesn’t mean he won’t be around to scrutinize every nail and screw. This is Mike Jr.’s biggest challenge yet as he manages both an intricate build and the growing expectations of his father, an all-star contractor who has made a career out of doing it right the first time.
With the support of the Holmes crew and sister Sherry, Mike Jr. races against mother nature to complete the garage before winter. In the final days, Mike Jr. bans his father from the garage to add a few personal touches and some seriously cool technology. For the first time in his career, Mike must wait on the sidelines for the final reveal.
