HGTV Canada’s host of Rock Solid Build
Randy Spracklin is a third-generation builder, co-owner of Newfound Builders Ltd, and stars in the HGTV Canada series Rock Solid Builds. He took over the family business in 2008 and grew it into a major player in the industry. Brigus is where he grew up and now it’s where he and his partner are raising their two kids. It’s not uncommon for his kids to check in on him while he’s at work, and who knows, maybe they’ll be next to take over the business. This Newfoundlander is serious about his work, but he can also be a prankster and knows it’s important to have a laugh at work. If you ever get a chance to visit Brigus, there’s a lot of catty stuff to see and do, so take in the scenery, check out the shop, and have a yarn, because everything’s mint!

Professional organizer and owner of Simplified
When your life is simplified and decluttered, you can enjoy the small moments. Megan Golightly loves what she does and has been doing it for more than 14 years. She has a passion for problem-solving, organizing projects big and small, and working with families to see their homes and lives transformed. Her goal is to help others feel at ease in their home and eliminate the negative feelings people may have about clutter.
Megan holds a degree in psychology and her on-going study in neuroscience piqued her curiosity on how the brain works in relation to the spaces in our homes. It’s unhealthy to have nagging critical thoughts about the state of our homes. Whether or not we believe these words, our subconscious mind does. Deciding how and where to start can be paralyzing. Megan can help motivate, inspire and uncover the psychology of organizing.
Based in Calgary, Canada, Megan has traveled to work with clients in Victoria, Tofino, Vancouver, Kelowna, Edmonton, Toronto, Los Angeles, Boston, Denver, Palm Springs and Mexico. Two of her biggest passions are organizing and travel.

HGTV Canada hosts of Hoarders House Flippers
Despite their constant light-hearted bickering, this brother-sister team is a force to be reckoned with! Both worked taxing jobs, Heather as a chef and Nathan as an auto body painter, before realizing they could make way more money and have much more fun flipping houses full-time.
Heather is the organized taskmaster who makes sure the flip is done on time and on budget, no matter what it takes. Her baby brother Nathan is her right-hand man, happy to offer his opinion…even when it isn’t asked for! Heather is the driving force behind the designs, favoring wood tones and architectural detailing to help draw in prospective buyers. Nathan is the “techie” of the pair, updating the flips with gadgets for tech-savvy buyers. His internet connection is ALWAYS stronger than Heather’s!
Their team is a true family affair - mom helps with landscaping, dad is a plumber, Heather’s husband Garth is a general contractor and the extended family pitches in to help with everything else in between. Heather and Nathan may go toe-to-toe sometimes (as siblings do) but in the end they always come together.
