Un-handy homeowner submissions and nominations from Parksville Qualicum Beach can be emailed to casting@mountainroad.ca with the following information:

1. The story behind the questionable home improvements.

2. Photos of each of the eccentric repairs.

3. A photo of you and a photo of the not-so-handy person you are nominating.

4. Your contact information.

Visit HGTV.ca/CastingCall for more details.
