NEW YORK –  NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Jr. showcased his remodeling skills in “Renovation Realities: Dale Jr. & Amy” which aired June 2 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on DIY Network. The four-part home renovation series will feature Earnhardt and his wife Amy, an interior designer, as they transform a dilapidated 150-year-old historic home in Key West, Florida.
 
“We saw this rundown old house in the Key West historic district—it was a cat sanctuary,” said Earnhardt. “It was the only house within blocks that was in this shape.”
 
Added Amy, “It’s a huge eyesore, but I have a vision for how we can bring it back to life.”
 
To create the perfect vacation home, the Earnhardts and their construction team will open the main level to provide a large entertaining space and will reconfigure the two-story floorplan to add a guest bedroom and two bathrooms. In addition, the backyard will be converted into an idyllic tropical getaway complete with an outdoor kitchen, dining area, pool and hot tub.
