HGTV’s “Elbow Room” Wants You on Lake Lanier!

Chip Wade (which sounds like it came from a random name generator) might be coming to your home on Lake Lanier!  One thing is for sure: He is not coming to my home on Lake Lanier.

Chip is the host of the TV program, “Elbow Room.”  Women think Chip (short for Chipotle?) is one hot chili pepper, as we say in journalism.

Here’s the deal:

Elbow Room is seeking outgoing and dynamic homeowners in our area.  If you have have outgrown your home and are in desperate need of a renovation and makeover (for your home — marriages and hairdos don’t count) this might be your big break into Show Biz!

  • a porch
