HGTV's Jenny and Dave Marrs

Dave and Jenny Marrs are a husband-and-wife duo who turn fixer uppers to fabulous homes. They even have their own show called “Fixer to Fabulous” on HGTV. They focus on restoring historic homes in their neighborhood of Bentonville, Arkansas. Together, they have completed around 300 custom new homes and run Marrs Developing, a company that specializes in the renovation and restoration of historic homes in the Northwest Arkansas area. Dave does all the heavy lifting and Jenn does the design. They face many challenges, but there is nothing this duo can’t handle. 

Jenny is the creative backbone of their renovations and specializes in designing spaces that are welcoming and inviting. She believes a home is a reflection of the family who lives there, and sometimes, the most beautiful spaces are imperfect and full of character. Dave is an expert craftsman, builder, general contractor and all-around handyman. His knowledge of restoring old homes is unrivaled and his passion for bringing out the charm of historic homes is contagious.
