Reality DIY show finds success with Maine products

The Maine-grown reality show "Maine Cabin Masters" is finding exposure across the nation.

The Sun Journal reported the home improvement show, picked up by DIY Network and now in its second season, features house builder Chase Morrill, his sister Ashley Eldridge, who is a designer, and their family and friends. All are from the Augusta-Gardiner area.

The premise revolves around the crew making a major transformation to a camp in six to eight weeks. The budget is provided by the camp owner. Some product exposure also helps the budget.

"We use Maine wood and Maine wood companies," Morrill told the paper.

One of the "reveals" for the second season is a camp owned by Dora Anne Mills, the long-time director of the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention until 2011.

Like other home improvement shows, the Maine Cabin Masters series depicts a work crew transforming a camp in six to eight weeks. During that time, the owner cannot visit, creating an element of surprise when the final results are revealed.
