Denese Butler On HGTV Fix My Frankenhouse
In 2023, HGTV once again found a gap in the niche and thus Frankenhouses was born. Hosting the renovation show were Denese and her husband Mike Butler fixing “homes that have had a plethora of renovations done over the course of their lifetimes — over the course of different time periods. The kind of houses that have gotten additions that truly don’t make sense.”
As seen on a sneak peek, the wife/husband was fixing a house with seven different types of flooring, six staircases, three balconies and two additions to the house have been made. A weird one indeed.
“Solving problems for families living in these types of homes is my favorite part of the job,” Mike said. “To fix the houses, I shake up the floor plans and build new layouts that actually function.”
Explaining her job too, Denese chimed in, “Once we have the updated layout in place, I restore flow to the home with cohesive modern design.”
Looking back, HGTV discovered Denese and her husband via Instagram. Infact, it wasn’t just HGTV who had their sights on the couple. Denese said that multiple production companies had reached out to her about doing a TV show in 2019, and they “finally made the choice on a company that aligns with our visions and goals.”
Developing the show, took three years of planning, she added. And when the filming was wrapped up, they were more than excited for everyone to see the hard work they’d put into the show. Also, over an IG post, they thanked all the “key players” who helped them with all the BTS work.
Mike And Denese Butler Relationship
Denese married her husband Butler on April 21, 2012, vocalizing, “Head over heels for this white guy,” in front of her friends and family. This line was the same sentence Denese said as she was running up and down the stairs, a few days after she had her first date with Mike at Brooklyn Bridge Park in 2005.
Now, as of 2023, the two are married for over 11 years and share three kids. “When I reflect on our life journey, I am in awe of how God took two strangers, and brought us together to create this beautiful life. If I find a window of opportunity to pause and reflect, I’m always reminded of where we started and how far we’ve come,” she said.
Talking about their children, their oldest, Ellis turned six in April 2023. He “is definitely one of a kind. His light shines so bright, and we hope that it touches people throughout the world,” Denese said.
As for Felix, he turned 4 in April 2023. He’s an “incredibly loving, kind, fearless and courageous” child.
The youngest, Lucy just celebrated his first birthday on October 16, 2022.
So yes, Denese was pregnant while filming Frankenhouses. No wonder, everyone always asked them how “are you all doing this with THREE small children?” before they responded with “it takes a village and a whole lot of Jesus.”
Fun Fact: Mike thinks that he met Denese when she had multi-colored hair and a shaved design on the back of her head. Well, he got it all wrong.
