Yawning of homes with odd additions and clashing redesigns? the new HGTV series Fix My Frankenhouse is just the one you need to be seeing. And the network’s latest recruits Mike and Denese Butler also might just help you with their knacks of changing a home eventually into a “frankenhouse”.
In the rest of the writing, let us tell you all about Mike, his age, net worth, Fix My Frankenhouse journey with his wife Denese, and more.
Mike Butler On HGTV Fix My Frankenhouse
Over the past year, Mike Butler and his wife Denese Butler have been filming Fix My Frankenhouse with High Noon Entertainment, the same production company that created Fixer Upper with Chip and Joanna Gaines, and multiple hit series for HGTV, including Jonathan Knight’s Farmhouse Fixer, Mina Starsiak Hawk’s Good Bones, Bargain Block with Keith Bynum and Evan Thomas, and Unsellable Houses with twin sisters Lyndsey Lamb and Leslie Davis.
HGTV discovered the couple via Instagram. In a social media post, Denese also talked about multiple other production companies reaching out to her about doing a TV show in 2019. They chose HGTV because they thought it aligned with their visions and goals. And developing the show took them three whole years of planning.
Recently, when promoting the show, Denese even shared that she felt like she was pregnant for 11 months, from filming time from start to finish. She gushed that the six houses that were under major renovations felt like giving birth to “sextuplets”.
Yet, she also modestly shared that she and Mike could not do any of this without the key players that helped them with all the BTS work.
Fix My Frankenhouse premieres on 23 April 2023.
Denese And Mike Butler’s Relationship
Denese and Mike Butler have been husband and wife since 21 April 2012. Since then and Denese has never stopped being head over heels for her “white guy”. Clearly, even he feels the same way.
Reflecting on their life journey together, Denese also shared how back in 2005, she ran up and down the stairs yelling “head over heels for this white guy” at the top of her lungs, after they met. Memories like this, she said, she will forever cherish.
This is another fun fact that Denese chose to tell her people on social media: “he (Mike) thinks that he met me when I had multi-colored hair and a shaved design in the back of my head 🤷🏽♀️ he’s got it all wrong!”. Also, from what she tells, it appears she and Mike went to Brooklyn Bridge Park for their first date back in 2010.
One also can not help but be in awe of this couple raising their three young children while transforming homes in the Boston area. They have three sons. Ellis turned the whole 5 on 6 April 2022. The other one, Felix turned 4 on 27 March 2023. And Luca, the youngest, met his family on 16 October 2021.
Both Mike and his wife often get asked how they are doing everything, especially the renovation thing, with three small children. And they have every time responded with an “it takes a village and a whole lot of Jesus”.
