Good morning friends!  Most of you that follow us on social media have heard our fun news… Our pilot is airing this weekend!  It’s called Open Concept and it airs on HGTV this Sunday, September 20th at 1pm CST/ 2pm EST!

Open Concept on HGTV

To say we are excited would be a bit of an understatement!  So… What is the show about??  Here is the description from

Sisters, Whitney and Ashley tear down the walls of Brooke and Dack’s boxy house. Four small rooms become one large open concept space that is the perfect home for entertaining. They use their mad carpentry skills to fill the home with 16 pieces of custom furniture they make for a fraction of the cost it would be in store. The end result is a stunning reveal of the living room, kitchen, family room and laundry.

Basically, we tore down the walls to bring a family together, and then we built them the furniture to fill it up!

AND WE NEED YOUR HELP!  This is a pilot episode for HGTV.  If the ratings are good, the network will pick the show up for a series.  So, we need you to watch the pilot, and we need you to SHARE the heck out of it!  It would mean the world to us.

We will be doing some awesome tool giveaways on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter over the next 48 hours leading up to the show and we will also be doing live Periscope videos before and after the show as well as live tweeting, so make sure to follow us on all of our social platforms!

So many of you have told us you will be having watch parties!  That makes our hearts so happy!  Please, please send us photos of your parties so we can share them with everyone!

Here are a couple of photos you can save and share!

We are extremely thankful for this entire opportunity, and so many people that have walked the journey with us.  We are thankful for our families.  We are thankful for our stepdad (that will make more sense after you watch the show 😉 ) We are thankful for all of you guys and your continued support.  We are thankful for RTR Media, our production company in Canada.  We are thankful for Lindsey Weidhorn, from Scripps who has surrounded us with a great team.  We are thankful for our sweet friends, Lauren and Stephen Alvarez.  They were our producers, and quickly became like family.

That’s about it!

Please tune in, and share away!  You guys are amazing, and have always been an incredible support for us.   We can’t believe that we have been given this opportunity, but we are so thankful for it.  We know this plan is none of our doings.  It is much bigger than us, but we are thrilled to be along for the ride.

Thanks friends!

Whitney and Ashley
