DIY Network has greenlit the new series Backyard Goldmine with renovator, designer and chef Ben Sargent.

Sargent’s goal is to convert homeowner’s unused backyard buildings into stunning rental properties. The 10-episode series will follow the former Cooking Channel host  as he transforms broken sheds, dilapidated barns and dismal outbuildings into properties that can be used to generate additional income.

Set in Burlington, Vermont, and Charleston, South Carolina, Sargent will infuse his projects with a mix of natural rustic charm and eclectic design.

Backyard Goldmine (pictured) airs April 25 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on DIY Network.

Property Brothers at Home: Drew’s Honeymoon House will follow the Scott brothers and Drew’s fiancée Linda as they renovate the soon-to-be newlyweds’ Los Angeles home. The (4×60) episodes will feature the brothers’ as they and Linda make design decisions, face renovation hurdles and pull out all the stops to finish the massive project in time for the couple’s rehearsal dinner at their new home.

Property Brothers at Home: Drew’s Honeymoon House will premiere in November 2017.
