Home renovators Dave and Jenny Marrs bring old houses back to life in HGTV’s Fixer to Fabulous.With a little love and a lot of talent, the husband-wife duo restores timeworn homes into contemporary living spaces in their hometown 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.
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.
The Marrs family lives on a small farm in a restored 1906 home where they raise their five children and countless animals. They are passionate about orphan care, family preservation and adoption; they adopted their daughter Sylvie from the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2014. The family also runs a blueberry farm in Northwest Arkansas to provide educational opportunities for orphaned and at-risk teenage boys in Marondera, Zimbabwe.
Dave and Jenny Marrs embrace small-town America by renovating classic homes in Bentonville, Arkansas. The resourceful couple preserves and transforms the area's historic houses into charming, updated masterpieces for young, potential buyers looking for a slower-paced lifestyle in a small town.
