Together, they make an exceptional historic-renovation power couple, and here’s what we know about Borje De Maqua.
Borja De Maqua On HGTV Saving The Manor
Saving The Manor apparently documents the renovation of King Henry VII’s 300-year-old estate in England and Borja De Maqua as well as Dean Poulton happens to be the hosts of the series.
Shot in Coleshill, Warwickshire, England, the show premiered on the network on 7 October 2022.
Speaking of Borja’s DIY journey, he started it only after he crossed paths with Dean. So, though he is now presented as a Jack of all trades these days, he did not always have a hands-on approach to real estate. He just thought that you paid different people to do things. So, before he met Dean he could not even hold a paintbrush.
Things have changed immensely ever since. Now, together with Dean, Borja is doing the vast majority of the work on their estate themselves in order to save resources for high-end finishes. In Borja’s words, he is thrilled and beyond proud that together they are learning to do so many more things like glass cutting, plastering, bricklaying, and carpentry. He truly has mastered so many skills under his belt.
As for Dean, he has been in the game for decades. His love for remodeling was born in his childhood while working on DIY projects with his father. From what’s been told by HGTV to its viewers, Dean has made a living as an architect for the last 10 years and has more than 25 years enjoying the art of construction.
Borja De Maqua Net Worth
Borja De Maqua reportedly had above £400 thousand net worth as of 2022.
He told House Digest in an October 2022 interview that though he was in real estate even back then, his life in Spain was socializing, going out, and having nothing to do with DIY.
Now, as per his BIO on his and Dean’s My Tiny Estate‘s website, he has been working in the property market for the past seven years as an estate agent and surveyor. Over here, it has been claimed that Borja knows the market and a good property and has a keen eye for gardening and an obsession with anything to do with it. By completing the jobs by themselves, they also manage costs.
Having previously completed many other renovation projects, Borja and Dean started working in Manor in 2018. Also, after they purchased My Tiny Estate, renovation of this Georgian estate has been their most ambitious restoration to date.
Lately, in every project that comes to this par, Borja takes charge of the cabinet work, whereas Dean has become an expert in plumbing and electricity.
Is Borja De Maqua Married?
Borja De Maqua was not married until the time of this writing. But, together with Dean Poulton, he had recently spent his life saving to buy a 65-room manor. So, clearly, they have had something going on. Here’s what we know.
Apparently, the two have been engaged for more than six years. At this point and they are believed to be waiting for a suitable time, with no whirlwind projects keeping them occupied, to plan a wedding.
Borja met Dean via GPS and the dating-app good fortune. It was a location-based app, and Borja was flying into England from Paris and was passing by the airport at that exact time. So, looking back to that time, Dean believes it was just meant to be. Because they met five days later. And after two months of getting to know each other, they decided to move in together. They bought their first home three months after that. The rest is history and now they love to say that if a couple does a restoration together in a relationship and survives that, then they can survive anything.
