Time Schedule

Mon 23:00 | Tue 10:00 | Wed 14:00 | Fri 18:00


On Restoration Wild, master reclaimer and visionary designer, Jay Chaikin, scours the countryside to reclaim abandoned items and transform them into livable, spectacular spaces.

In each episode, we see Jay and his highly skilled team of restoration experts searching deep into the woodlands for ruins forgotten by time and engulfed by the landscape.  From fallen trees and decrepit barns to abandoned railroad cars concealed by the environment, they’ll use them to create environments that look as if they were placed there by nature.

They embark on a cross-country Restoration Wild road trip, bringing an eye for design and expert craftsmanship to places in need of a facelift, taking natural relics and weathering remnants, in all their shapes and sizes, just begging for rediscovery, and using them to turn forgotten spaces into great new living spaces!
